Title: Rogov’s Guide to Israeli Wines

Title: Rogov’s Guide to Israeli Wines
Author: Daniel Rogov
Publisher: Toby Press, New Milford, CT

 

 

Did you know that you can experience an aspect of Israel for only $12 or so – via a bottle of one of their award-winning vintage varieties of wines?

No more of that cloying extra-sweet Malaga (unless you happen to really like Malaga) – Israel’s wineries have made it to First Place on the wine connoisseurs choice lists. Their wines are highly regarded even by wine enthusiasts who applaud these wines after blind tests against varietals from established French, Italian, German and American wineries.

Daniel Rogov writes a weekly wine column for Haaretz, the Israeli newspaper, and is a regular contributor to prestigious international wine literature. There are over one hundred twenty vintners in Israel today. As many as a thousand individual varieties of wines are produced annually, which are considered one of the major export products of Israel industry to Europe and North America.

This beautifully produced pocket-sized hardcover volume contains 250 pages with concise but very detailed descriptions that will be very useful to both the first-time user as well as to the aficionado. Rogov and his publisher, Toby Press, intend to re-publish this list annually with up-to-the-minute details on every Israeli winery and the wines that they produce.

The pages are replete with color photos of many of the labels found on wine bottles to assist easy identification, and reviews of the more than a thousand current selections, featuring individual scores and vintage reports. One chapter explains what constitutes a kosher wine, another provides a history of wine making in Israel, and there is an included glossary of wine terminology.

At less than $15, Rogov’s Guide should easily become a standard in the collection of everyone who enjoys consuming good wines and wants to start enjoying some of the world’s best fruits of the vine from Eretz Yisrael.

Purim is a fantastic time for fantasies, so I hope you won’t mind my fantasizing about how easy life would be if kids would prefer healthy cuisine over sweets. Imagine waking up to the call of “Mommy, when will my oatmeal be ready?”… As you rush to ladle out the hot unsweetened cereal, you rub […]

One should not give the money before Purim morning or after sunset.

The mishloach manos of times gone by were sometimes simple and sometimes elaborate, but the main focus was on the preparation of the delicious food they contained.

One of the earliest special Purims we have on record was celebrated by the Jews of Granada and Shmuel HaNagid, the eleventh-century rav, poet, soldier and statesman, and one of the most influential Jews in Muslim Spain.

Jews, wake up! Stop educating the world and start educating yourselves.

The program took on special significance as it marked not only the first anniversary of Rebbetzin Kudan’s levayah but also the 27th yahrzeit of Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka Schneerson, a”h.

It captures the love of the Jewish soul as only Shlomo Hamelech could portray it – and as only Rabbi Miller could explain it.

Erudite and academic, drawing from ancient and modern sources, the book can be discussed at the Shabbos table as well as in kollel.

I’m here to sit next to you and help you through this Purim with three almost-too-easy mishloach manot ideas, all made with cost-conscious paper bags.

Kids want to be like their friends, and they want to give and get “normal” mishloach manos stocked with store-bought treats.

Whenever he did anything loving for me, I made a big deal about it.

There are three kinds of travelers: there are tourists, there are businesspeople, and then there are historians like Ben G. Frank.

The last kind doesn’t simply go from here to there. They try to relive history and find the real meaning behind what they experience.

Behind “the news” there’s almost always a story that isn’t being reported, and certain kinds of phenomenon occur almost simultaneously all over the world in almost every era.
