Ask Dr. Vinny

Dear Dr. Vinny,

I am invited for dinner at a very religious Jewish family. I would like to bring along a 90+ rated kosher wine. Any recommendations?

—E.K., Miami

Dear E.K.,

Absolutely, and there are some great kosher wines out there to try! We put the word “kosher” in the tasting note so it’s easy to find. WineSpectator.com subscribers can go to our Wine Search database, type “kosher” into the search box and, under “Search by,” select “Wines, wineries, regions and tasting notes.” Once you get the hang of that, you can refine your search for more specific parameters.
