kosher wineTraditional Kosher wine in America once tasted more like grape jelly (sweet Concord grapes were the only ones available at the time) than traditional fermented wine.

Adding to kosher wine's dubious reputation among wine connoisseurs is the fact that most kosher wine is made mevushal or pasteurized.

The wine is pasteurized either before (for white wine) or after (for red wine) fermentation. Today, however, modern wine making techniques have made it possible to eliminate actually boiling of the liquid. Rather, a flash-pasteurization process is often used with grape juice and wine with minimal negative effects.
