A Conversation with Ami Nahari


Nahari2Our guest this evening’s – at 10:00pm (Eastern Time) – on The Kosher Scene Radio Show is Ami Nahari. He is the CEO and Founder of The River, Ami brings 15 years of business consulting expertise, focusing on customer satisfaction, organizational structure and service management. He is the product of an elite Israeli Army unit and a graduate of the management school at Bar Ilan University, Mr. Nahari is building an organization based on values, ethics, professionalism and state-of-the-art distribution technology.

He’s been a resident of New York City since 2000, Fortune 100 companies hired his services to improve operations and processes. He borrows best practices from the High-Tech and financial industries to establish a state of the art wine distribution operation.

Ami grew up in Efrat, in Gush Etzion where he met the winemaker of the Gush wines, Shraga Rosenberg.  “After my wife, Larissa and I tasted the wines we asked him to allow us to import his wines, but he immediately declined” Ami tells, “but I kept pushing until he said yes.” Today, needless to say Shraga is very happy with the choice he made.

The River imports Tishbi Winery, Gush Etzion Winery, Kadesh Barnea, Har Bracha Winery and soon two more wineries will be added to the family. Last year The River started working with ShiraWinery from CA, for two year in a row their products were named by the Jewish Week as Top Kosher Wine.

Kosher Food and Wine Extravaganza 2013 – Part 1


[I apologize to our readers for posting so late, but I had a family emergency. Immediately after the KFWE 2013 I had to leave for Richmond, VA. to deal with my 100 year old (ad meah ve’esrim!), Holocaust survivor uncle – my mother’s baby brother – who both broke a hip and developed pneumonia all at the same time. While far from perfect, things are under control again and I can get back to work. CS]

KFWE 2013 took place on Monday, February 4th, last week. As always the wine selections were superb, the restaurants and caterers exhibiting were tops. Better and bigger than ever, with more people attending than ever. Today we are posting the first of a multi part series of video interviews with winemakers, chefs, restaurateurs and some of the people attending.

We started with Baron Edmond de Rothschild wines…

Next we spoke to Joe A. Hurliman from the Herzog Wine Cellars

We segued with our friend, producer of award winning wines, Dr. Moises Cohen owner and founder of Spain’s acclaimed Elvi Wines.

After quite a few more interviews we went to the main floor to taste and see what the interviewees were talking about. My favorite was the Clos Mesorah 2009, it tasted even better than last year. On the nose I found it to be rich in blackberry, black cherry, blueberry and floral notes. On the palate it exhibits concentrated and layered fruit, silky tannins, along with plenty of spice, buttered herbs, and good cedar that fills the mouth and makes for a rich and unusual experience, with a long finish of chocolate, vanilla, berries, and butterscotch, with fruit and butterscotch lingering long after the wine is gone. Wooow, we loved it!

We will be telling you about the other wines we also enjoyed at KFWE 2013, so… just stay tuned. Meanwhile enjoy, gentle reader, enjoy!
