Honest Grapes - Kosher Cru Classé Wines
Kosher wine has a rich and sacramental role in Jewish history and winemaking started east of the Mediterranean where Lebanon and Israel stand today long before it did in Bordeaux and Burgundy! After the Roman conquest of Israel the Jews emigrated all over the world in what's known as the Diaspora, bringing their methods and practices with them, and today you can find Kosher wines from most of the famous wine-producing countries. We're now in our 4th vintage of Kosher production, having teamed up with two of our favourite growers - the maverick 100-point Saint-Emilion winemaker Jonathan Maltus and Burgundy superstar Etienne de Montille - to make hands down the best Kosher wine available in the UK. This means access to some of the greatest wines from the most coveted parcels in Bordeaux and top premier cru sites in Burgundy’s Volnay, Pommard and Puligny-Montrachet. The process is simple. They are crowdfunded by syndicates in volumes of 2+ barrels (600+ bottles) and made available at the best price to syndicate members. All wines are supervised by Rabbi Akiva Padwa, Director of Certification at KLBD, and project managed by our chairman Nathan on behalf of the syndicate. Our 2020 Kosher production is well under way, with most of the shares allocated already. If you have any questions about Kosher wine or are interested in joining the syndicate, please get in touch.
