What is kosher white wine?
Kosher white wine is very important for Jewish people living in Israel and abroad. They are living their life following the Torah, their religious anchor. Within their Jewish religion, it is stated that all followers should eat kosher. But what does, for example, a kosher white wine mean? When a product is kosher, it means that it’s safe to consume, looking at the rules of the Kashrut. The kashrut is a list of product that tells whether something is allowed (kosher) or not allowed (terefah). And what makes something kosher depends on a couple of regulations. It’s all about the origin of the product. If there’s an ingredient that comes from something kosher, the product is allowed to be consumed. The same goes for ingredients that come from terefah products; these are not allowed to be consumed. For example, only land animals that chew their cud and have cloven hooves, are permitted to being eaten. That is why Jewish people can not eat pigs: pigs do have cloven hooves, but do not chew their chud. The list of rules is extended by other types of animals, like fish or birds. All have their specific aspects which decide if it can or can not be used for consumption. Kosher white wine is thereby just a white wine that’s made out of kosher ingredients. Wine is made out of grapes, and these grape do grow on Israeli vineyards. Because these grapes are kosher (they are permitted to being consumed), these wines can automatically be called kosher white wines. And because of their believe, Jewish people need to be sure that everything they’re eating and drinking is kosher.
