Kosher Wines at Trader Joe's

If you want to look generous bring some of each of the different wines. There's a You tube video where some guy makes the same complaint. . . How can kosher wine be this cheap? How can I bring this as a gift. ? LOL

Kosher Wines at Trader Joe's

Has anyone tried the kosher brands at Trader Joes? Banero Prosecco, Sara Bee Moscato or the Terrenal wines? I would be interested in hearing your reactions to them. The wines are amazingly affordable - and rated a "Best Buy " by the Wine Enthusiast. However I would be interest in "lay opinions" about them.

Pesach wines for 2013?

Don't forget about the kosher wines at Trader Joes. Banero Prosecco for sparkling. Sara Bee Moscato. And the Terrenals. There is a new Terrenal Malbec from Argentina which is mevushal. You have to be careful. The Spanish Terrenals are not mevushal, however the Chilean Chardonnay is. Check the label. If its from South America or Italy it will be mevushal Sara Bee is great fun and way less expensive than the "blue bottle."

Kosher Prosecco for Passover

There was once a wine in Trader Joes called Banero. It was a Prosecco from Italy and it was kosher. Cost about $7.99. It is gone as far as I can tell. I hear that it is available in the East - but out here - well it was available for about a month or two and then nothing. Has anybody seen it again?

Trader Joe's Kosher Specialties?

They have some great values in kosher wine that nobody else has anywhere. Look for Sarah Bee Moscato, Banero Prosecco (sparking wine) and some red and white wines under the brand name Terrenal. In California the red Terrenala are $3.99 and are quite good. The prices are amazing.

Sorry I just noticed I was missing something. It.s supposed to start with four (4) lb. brisket. I like more cinamon and a little more onion. I am a big fan of sweet flavors with savory overtones.

Sweet kiddish wine makes a fine brisket. I use it with some cinnamon and dried fruit and a few other things. My Mom showed me the recipe years ago. Great for Rosh Ha Shana but tasty anytime.

I understand there are 2 Trader Joe's in Manhattan that sell beer or wine.
This is from traderjoes.com

Do the TJs carry wine in PA? I have heard that the state runs all alcohol sales but I don't know the details.

I have more information on Trader Joes kosher wines. Outside of California the red wines are Terrenal Cab Sauv/ Tempranillo $3.99, Terrenal Tempranillo/ Garnacha $3.99 and the white wine is Terrenal Macabeo/Chardonnay $3.99. Thay are all from Spain.

In California the white is a Chilean Chardonnay and costs $4.99

The Sara Bee Moscato is the same as in California. $5.99. I really like this wine.

Since I live in California, all this information comes from Trader Joes and friends across the country. So if anyone has any additional information, please contact me.

In the last month or two the famous Four Buck Feivel has apparently gone nationwide. Previously restricted to California, the wines should now be available across the country. This is the best value in kosher wine and great news for Pesach.

Cabernet Sauvignon (Spanish Not Mevushal) $3.99 Tempernillo (Spanish Not Mevushal)$3.99 Chardonnay (Chilean Mevushal) $4.99 Sara Bee Moscato (Italian Mevushal) $5.99 Banero Prosecco (Italian Champagne style sparkling wine. Mevushal) $7.99

If your store doesn't have them tell them to order it. Sometimes it is hard to get the managers to bring in kosher wines. It's also hard to Trader Joes to stick with any particular product SO if you like these prices and you like these wines let them know.

Help me find a wine for my wedding

Have you found a wine? It just ocurred to me that you might want to use a Processo - Italian sparkling wine - like champagne- called Banero. TJs has Banero for $7.99. There is no kosher wine like it for the price. Both the Sara Bee and the Banero are mevushal so they are kosher for all occasions and situations.

They can get it. If your TJs doesn't have it they can get it in a day or two. Its not as sweet as the blue bottle and well worth the money.
