Wine plays an essential role in the Passover Seder…so why not find a bottle or two that you like before the big night? Kosher wineries now span nearly every wine region across the globe, and they’re producing some great stuff, both red and white. In other words, cloyingly sweet wine is not your only choice—and you can even find wines to pair perfectly with your favorite Seder recipes. (You might even be able to source a wine to go with those Passover desserts you’re planning on whipping up!)
So, what does it mean for a wine to be kosher? In order to be certified as such, a wine must be made according to strict guidelines, using only certified kosher ingredients. What’s more, the process must be supervised by a rabbi. Finally, as with other Passover ingredients and foods, you’ll want to keep in mind that not all kosher wines are certified “kosher for Passover”—so be sure to check the label.
If you’re fortunate enough to be invited to a Seder this year, you can also use one of these wines as a thoughtful Seder gift. There truly is something in here for everyone!
This kosher wine is smooth and fruity, with strong cherry notes and ripe, round tannins. It’s a pleasant Montepulciano made with up to 15 percent Sangiovese.
This refreshing rosé comes from NBA All-Star Amar’e Stoudemire. This easy-to-drink wine is made from Pinot Noir grapes and has notes of strawberry, melon, and candied fruit.
This 100 percent Chardonnay from Sonoma Mountain has drawn comparisons to a fine white burgundy and is produced by Covenant, which was founded by a former Wine Spectator writer in 2003.
Did you know? Carmel Winery is one of the oldest wineries in Israel. It was founded in 1882 by the same owner of Chateau Lafite-Rothschild in Bordeaux. This is a full-bodied red wine that tastes of stewed plums and blueberries.
This sparkling wine from the Galilee region of Israel employs an ancient winemaking methodology known as pétillant naturel (or pét-nat), where wine that is partially fermented is bottled, resulting in trapped carbon dioxide that absorbs into the wine as bubbles. The result is a pleasant sparkler with crisp notes of peach and apple.
Made from 100 percent Tempranillo grapes, this elegant wine is a crowd-pleaser with its notes of rich, red fruits like cherries and raspberries. It is medium-bodied, making it food-friendly and easy to pair.
There are nine generations behind this California-based wine producer! Baron Herzog used grapes from California’s Central Coast to make this fruity, medium-bodied cab.
Made of Sauvignon Blanc grapes from the Loire Valley, this Sancerre has hints of stone fruit with a lovely balance of minerality and acidity.
Consider this an editor’s pick—several staffers recommended this fruity wine as a good, affordable choice! Not as sweet as other Manischewitz fruit wines, the cherry one makes for an excellent aperitif. However, be sure your Manischewitz is labeled Kosher for Passover—that means it’s made with real cane sugar instead of their standard corn syrup.
This refreshing dry Riesling from a Napa Valley producer has clear, lingering notes of sweet fruits. It’s an ideal pairing for dishes with big, spicy flavors.
Chateau les Riganes
Medium in body and acidity, this smooth red comes from the heart of the Bordeaux region and smells of earth with subtle hints of blackberries and blueberries.
This special occasion wine makes a great gift: It’s classic and elegant with fine bubbles and a crisp, citrusy finish. It’s a non-vintage champagne that is easy to drink.
