Kosher Wine Club Review – 7 Things You Must Know

kosher-wine-screenshotIf you are Kosher, you have to always keep an eye out on everything you eat or drink and when looking for beer and wine, you really don’t have a ton of options. So, let’s dive into their wine, shall we?

kosher-wine-shipmentThis month, one of their selections is a 2010 Galil Mountain Yiron, an Israeli wine that is a red wine blend: 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, and 7% Syrah, which is priced individually on their site for $26.99 and with the two bottle club at $35.99, there seems to be some savings there. Let’s do the math. Two bottles at $36 which equal $18 a piece, so $27 minus $18 is nine dollars in savings. Not a bad a value in my book. After some digging, I saw mostly all favorable reviews on the KosherWine.com website, but what do other sites say?

I dug even deeper and even found out that reformjudaismmag.org listed the Galil Mountain Yiron as one of their top 50 koshers wine in the world. So, we know it’s good. But what can you expect from this blend? You’ll find instant aromas of wild berry, plum, and cherry, along with vanilla and toasted oak.

Alright, so, the wine is good, the value is pretty good, let’s dive into all the pros and cons of joining this wine club and then my expert verdict on whether or not you should give them a try.discovery

PROS

  • KOSHER! Wines that a kosher seems a bit tricky to find. This is one of those premier sites to get a good selection and still remain kosher.
  • Newsletter. This will come with every shipment and will drop some knowledge on you as far as aromas, wine regions, flavors, and more about the wine in your package.
  • Points! They have a point earning system so every time you buy wine, you get points, review a wine on their site, get points. These points add up and can be redeemed for free gift cards to use for more wine!
  • International selections. Not just California, but Israel, Argentina, Italy, and more.

CONS

  • Shipping was $9.56 for my location. On their two higher priced club, they do offer shipping and I think on individual bottles they offer shipping free sitewide, so why charge me now? Bummer. But not a deal breaker since some companies charge as much as $20 for shipping.
  • No all white option. If you only want white wines, you’re stuck with 1 red, 1 white. Alternatively, if you want all reds, that IS an option.
  • To get 90+ rated wines, you will have to upgrade all the way up to their $80 a month option.

THE VERDICT

So, what the deal? Is this going to be a pass, consider, or recommend?

After weighing the pros and cons, I would consider this wine club with some reservations. If you want only white wines, sorry, but the club may not be for you. You’d be better off just buying individual bottles of white from their store. BUT, if you like reds or mixing it up with one of each and want something kosher, I’d definitely recommend this club.
