KFWE New York is hosted by Royal Wine Corp., the world’s largest producer, importer and distributor of kosher wines and spirits. New York’s premier kosher showcase will feature more than 400 intriguing kosher wines and spirits from around the world as well as trend-setting cuisine from leading kosher chefs, caterers, restaurateurs, and gourmet specialty companies.
The 2019 edition promises more samples of the latest products, limited editions, and Passover delicacies than ever before, and tickets are expected to sell out quickly.
This year’s spectacular wine selection represents all price points, from the Stoudemire Private Collection from Israel ($260 SRP) to Don Alfonso Sauvignon Blanc from Chile ($7.99 SRP). Consumers will be able to sample interesting new varieties from France, Italy, Spain, Israel, Australia, Canada, Chile, Argentina, Washington, Oregon, and California. All wines on offer are kosher for Passover and year-round.
One notable addition to this year’s line-up is the Stoudemire Grand Reserve from the cellars of NBA star Amar’e Stoudemire. Made from premium grapes from Kfar Shamay vineyards in the Upper Galilee, only 1,680 bottles of this Cabernet-Petit Verdot blend were produced.
Bordeaux will once again take center stage at KFWE 2019. “Those who attended KFWE last year will remember the impressive showing of 2015 vintage Bordeaux,” said Gabriel Geller, wine blogger and PR Director for Royal Wine. “Experts say 2016 was another exceptional year, even surpassing 2015. We’re very excited that these magnificent wines are returning to the spotlight.”
KFWE Gourmet Food
Dozens of gourmet kosher restaurants, chefs, caterers, and food companies will serve up delicious fare including sushi, kosher poke, bison, organic beef and BBQ, and mouthwatering desserts from chocolates and parve ice cream to cakes and cupcakes, among many others.
