Kosher for Passover Wine in DC?

KWynn Apr 16, 2008 01:11 PM

Suggestions for places in DC to purchase KFP Wine. Ideally within the district--my go-to last resort is The Curious Grape in Shirlington, which I know sells it and is on my way down to my Seder in Virginia.
And no Manischewitz syrupy wine please. Just regular table wine designated Kosher for Passover.

    I'm pretty sure that I was able to find some Kosher for Passover wine at Sherry's in Woodley Park. They have a whole section with Kosher and Made In Israel wines. The staff there has always been very helpful.

    When I lived in the area they were my go-to place. Plus for the beer drinkers they usually carry the entertaining HeBrew beer....not sure if its kosher for Passover though. Check out their website, it's great! http://www.shmaltz.com/index.html

      You might also try Whole Foods...
      I don't buy kosher wines, but they have a wide selection of specialized wines.

        IMHO, the best place to get Kosher for Passover wine is Potomoc Wine and Spirits at 3100 M Street in Georgetown. It is a small shop, but their selection of Kosher for Passover wine is excellent. I went yesterday and spend about 20 minutes discussing wine with the guy in the shop before we decided what was to my taste and in the price range I wanted to spend If you are willing to spend the money I recommend the 2003 Capcanes Montsant Peraj Ha'Abib. I'm a wine geek and I love this wine on its own, not because it is Kosher. I bought two bottles to take to Sader with me, along with a Herzog Syrah.

          I was able to buy Herzog Wines at Sherry's in Woodley Park as well. A great wine, regardless if you are keeping Kosher or not.

            I wouldn't go so far as to say great, but a good wine. What I liked about Potomoc was they had the Herzog Syrah, Pinot Noir (ugh, never met a kosher PN that I liked, and I love PN), Chard. and Cabernet.

              Good to know that we should avoid the kosher Pinots...that's my husband's favorite wine normally (i.e. when not keeping kosher). I'll keep that in mind. Thanks.

        Best Cellars has a decent selection of very good and reasonably priced wines. And they are giving free tastings all week according to a sign at the store this afternoon. There is one is Clarendon and one in Dupont Circle.
