Kosher wine is produced according to Judaism's religious law and specifically, Jewish dietary laws. For a wine to be able to be called kosher, a Rabbi or a Sabbath-observant Jew must supervise the winemaking process from start to finish. There has been an increased demand over recent years and we have brought some excellent wines onto our list. The Falesco Montiano is Falescos flagship wine and one of the most innovative Italian red wines. It scored 90 points from Wine Spectator who notes "...Elegant and finely knit overall, layering supple tannins with flavours of blackcurrent, pomegranate and spice box..." Another great Italian red is the 100% Montepulciano, Botteotto d'Abruzzo, which has a very intense nose of bramble berry and dark-cherry compote and raspberry coulis, and has garnered 90 points from James Suckling. At last but by no means least, a staple at Honest Grapes, Château Teyssier - one of our top picks and best value reds.
Wine Shop - Kosher wines - Frerejean Frères
A new Champagne House to the UK but one that over the years has become a firm favourite on the continent. The three brothers, from the Frerejean-Taittinger family, have embarked on a mission to revive some of the oldest traditions of Champagne and notably the sabrage. As the lot tear about London lopping off bottle caps, with the help of our Wine Director Tom Harrow, the Champagne has caused quite a stir. Extra long maturation in their cellars for a minimum of 5 years on the lees, all premier cru vineyards, and all with a complexity to rival any 'branded' Champagne on the market.
