This past Wednesday, April 6th of 2011, Gotham Wine and Liquors (2517 Broadway; New York, NY 10025; Tel:212.932.0990; Fax: 212.222.3870) presented their 8th Annual Kosher Wine Extravaganza. As always this event garnered great interest from Jewish and non-Jewish segments of Greater New York’s population. SYR and I spoke to people who had come from as far as Westbury, CT, Lakewood, NJ and cities in between.
Various wine distributors showed off their products, including wines by Tabor, Dalton, Yarden, Recanati, Tishbi, Borgo Reale, Ella Valley, Teperberg, Or Haganuz, Lanzur, Beckett, Jerusalem Hills, Gedeon, Mount Hevron, Cantina Gabriele, Willm, Bravdo, Dovev, Mony, Odem, Baron Herzog, Baron Edmond et Benjamin Rothschild, Teal Lake, Beaume de Venise, Binyamina, Barkan, Pierre Miodownick’s new Domaine Netofa, Gamla, Psagot, Segal, Bartenura, Ovadia Estates, Goose Bay, Cellier des Dauphins, Elvi, Tio Pepe, Hagafen, Elgazi, Psagot, Laurent Perrier, Carmel, Domaine de Castel, Alexander, Yatir, CAPÇANES and more. There was plenty to taste, there was plenty to learn. Selections varied in price from the very inexpensive to well over $100.00 per bottle.
The Kosher Scene, did a live radio broadcast from the tasting room. Since the archived file got accidentally trashed we will be doing – by popular request – a special two hour show tomorrow evening (Monday the 11th of April) from 6:30pm to 8:30pm. Not only will we talk to Costas Mouzouras and some of the distributors but we will talk to Brigitte Mizrahi and Moshe Vogel from Anderson Foods International about their brands of cholov Yisroel and cholov stam cheeses.
Please listen to what promises to be a very interesting show here.
