The KFWE has grown to be the destination of choice for serious wine lovers and foodies the world over, sponsored by The Royal Wine Co. This year’s show will feature new wine selections, rare vintages, and limited editions of wines and spirits imported from renowned vineyards from across the globe. Many are award-winning and have been featured in leading trade publications.
At this year’s KFWE more than 300 wines and spirits will be on hand for sampling. Among the new wines making their debut are Terra di Seta Assai, the first kosher Gran Selezione Chianti ever to be produced, as well as Herzog Generation VIII Cabernet Sauvignon Padis Vineyard Napa Valley 2014, a very special edition wine that is released only every few years and is made from grapes grown in a select premium vineyard.
The evening event, open to the public, will also feature gourmet fare from top restaurants and chefs who are making news in the world of kosher food with unexpected ingredients and innovative recipes. Guests can indulge in gourmet specialty foods including BBQ, sushi and Asian/fusion fare, as well as creative desserts and specialty coffees. Evening hours are 6:30 pm until 10:00 pm.
The day time portion of the KFWE 2017 is open exclusively to industry trade professionals as well as press, from noon to 4:00 pm. The tasting for press and trade offers direct access to many of the winemakers and winery owners, complimented by a select tasting of food from some of the area’s top kosher caterers.
