Today is Passover, and I implore Jews and non Jews alike to dip into the sophisticated realm of kosher wines. Manischewitz is SO 1999. These days, pareve doesn’t make you pucker. Kosher wines are dry, elegant and come in just about every varietal, even sparklers! Here are some sure things:

Hagafen Napa Valley 2001 Brut Cuvee. It’s got a rose tint. ($30)

Baron Herzog Lodi Old Vine 2002 Zinfandel. Textbook zin. ($14)

Segal’s Galilee Heights 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon. What else are you going to serve with that brisket? ($17)

Bartenura Provincia di Pavia 2004 Moscato. For the sweet tooth. ($14)

L’chaim!
