Wine Talk: The Story Of The Three Herzogs


herzogRoyal Wine Corporation is the giant that leads the kosher wine world. In wine, the big guys often get stuck for being too successful or too dominant.

Carmel Winery produced the first kosher wine aged in small oak barrels, its legendary Special Reserve 1976. The Golan Heights Winery brought New World technology to Israel. Hagafen was the first Californian Winery to make quality kosher wines. Read the full report here.
