During this week there are specific Kosher dietary practices observed, and with that, the wine must also be Kosher for Passover. In order for a wine to be Kosher it must be made under the supervision of a rabbi and be consistent with Jewish dietary laws.
If you will be attending a Passover Seder you may want to bring a bottle of wine. This is a very small list of suggested Kosher wines for Passover to help with your selection. Fortunately, many wine regions around the world produce Kosher wines so you will be able to find a fair selection in your local wine stores.
