Akiba Eger ? Strictly Kosher, Strictly Quality

Shredding the old perception that kosher wines are sweet and inferior to mainstream wines, A.V. Imports introduces Akiba Eger ? an exception brand of wine that is ideal for the ''Holiday of Freedom'' and other special occasions.

Kosher for Passover and perfect for family feasts, celebrations and parties, Akiba Eger is available in a Cabernet Franc or Welsch Riesling ? ideal for pairing with traditional and nouvelle cuisine. Akiba Eger listened to the market and developed wines that defy the status quo. These sophisticated wines produced in Egervin, the second largest winery in Hungary, are a far cry from the sweet wines in square bottles to which many may be accustomed.

The Akiba Eger Cabernet Franc, from the Kunsag region of Hungary, is a fresh and fruity wine with a medium body and measured tannins. Aged in oak, it is produced from 100 percent Cabernet Franc grapes, a close relative of Cabernet Sauvignon and shares many of the same characteristics. Produced from 100 percent Welsch Riesling grapes from the Eger region, the Akiba Eger Welsch Riesling has a medium golden hue with exotic aromas of flint and honeyed apples.

Egervin, which was founded in 1949, has greatly expanded its range of grape varieties that can be used in the production of kosher wines. As one of the most significant wine producers in Hungary, the company uses premium grapes and viticultural techniques, to ensure Akiba Eger wines meet high quality standards. Every step of the wine making process from grape crushing to bottling of the wines is handled solely by Sabbath observant Jews using equipment that is used exclusively for the preparation of kosher products.

Akiba Eger wines are ideal for vegetarians as kosher wines are subject to a very stringent filtration procedure, and no foreign substance may be used (unlike non-kosher wines, which often use gelatin, rice, milk products or animal products for clarification and purification processes).

A.V. Imports, Inc., a Columbia, Maryland-based national wine and spirit importer, has been in business since 1986. The company imports wines and spirits from Italy, Mexico, Chile, Hungary, Spain and New Zealand and distributes them throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, Canada, Aruba and Bahamas.

When soldiers of the Israel Defense Forces went into combat against Hamas in Gaza, they were armed with the highest level of military equipment Israel could provide them.
Some of the soldiers were also armed with “spiritual ammunition” provided to them earlier this week by the Orthodox Union (OU), which delivered 102 packages consisting of tefillin, tzitzit and a siddur with Tehillim prepared especially for soldiers on the battlefield.
The materials were brought to Gaza by Rabbi Avi Berman, director of OU Israel, and represent the first disbursement of the special fund created by the OU to provide the items to soldiers who wanted to add a spiritual component to their armament.
Funding for these packages was provided by Beth Jacob Congregation of Beverly Hills, CA. In the next few weeks, hundreds more of these packages will be provided by the congregation to soldiers returning from Gaza.
“The IDF arms the soldiers with their military weaponry; the OU’s mission is to arm them with spiritual ammunition as they put their lives at risk,” said OU Executive Vice President Rabbi Tzvi Hersh Weinreb.
The fund-raising campaign is taking place in OU synagogues across North America. The tefillin delivered to the 102 soldiers on Sunday cost $33,000. Another 70 soldiers are on the waiting list to receive their packages.
“Commanders who have been with the IDF for a long time were telling me that they didn’t remember such a spiritual high in the army since the day after the Six-Day War,” Rabbi Berman told The Jewish Press.
“These tefillin represent Jews in America whose heart is with the soldiers who are risking their lives in Gaza. The soldiers are putting the tefillin on at a critical time in their lives, and the people who contributed are hoping that they will continue to do so forever and ever.”
