Yaffo White Blend (Israel)

Hand-harvested from select vineyards located in the Judean Mountains, Yaffo White is a medium-bodied blend of Chardonnay and Viognier. This means bold fruit and floral aromas and piquant brightness on the palate. Aged on the lees without oak barrels for six months, this lends the wine a pristine, lean quality, and long, mineral finish. It pairs well with salads, seafood, and chicken, as well as good, old-fashion porch-sipping. Not Mevushal. Kosher for Passover.

Approximately $24.99. Find it online.

Binah Gruner Veltliner 2021 (USA, PA)

A dazzling North American take on Austria’s beloved white grape variety Grüner Veltliner. This dry wine is spritzy minus the spritz, that is, bright citrus and tropical fruit notes shimmer on the palate, but there are no bubbles to be found. Grown and produced on a family farm in Berks County, PA, and aged in Hungarian Oak for a slightly nutty finish. The acidity is part of the pleasure of this wine, and it pairs well with all sorts of dishes from (regionally specific) schnitzel to crunchy roast green vegetables.

Approximately $26.99. Find it online.

Chateau Roubine R de Roubine Rosé 2022 (France)

Produced within the Côtes de Provence appellation growing area in the South of France. This dry rosé wine is as quintessentially rosé as it gets. Look for pretty fruit notes of pink grapefruit, young red berries, sea salt, and whiffs of Mediterranean herbs. Dry, mineral, mouthwatering finish. A silky, yet clean rosé, this wine is also great for sipping on its own, but accompanies salmon and seafood, as well as crunchy salads without too much vinegar-based dressing, i.e. tabouleh or salade niçoise. Mevushal. Kosher for Passover.

Approximately $14.99. Find it online.

Contessa Annalisa Collection Prosecco (Italy)

Made from 100% Glera grapes as per the appellation guidelines. Gondola is an easy, breezy, classically styled Prosecco with notes of green apple and pear, a mostly dry finish and a delicate fizz. It’s perfect with smoked salmon and all the accoutrements of a bagel brunch. Mevushal. Kosher for Passover.

Approximately $14.99. Find it online.

Domaine Chante Bise 2021 (France)

This bold, dry, red wine is brimming with ripe plum and blackberries, along with some woodsy spicy and black currant. A Côtes du Rhone Villages, it’s made from a classic blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre. Serve alongside your juiciest brisket, as the tannins in the wine will balance it out beautifully. Not Mevushal. Kosher for Passover.
