New York…More than 700 wine and food connoisseurs are expected to fill the Metropolitan Pavilion in Lower Manhattan on Monday as Royal Wines (manufacturers of Kedem wines and juices) repeats its “Kosher Food & Wine Experience” for the third time in as many years. The event has become a showcase for the leader in kosher wines with the media and the public. The wine tasting by consumers is one of the highlights as visitors meet winemakers from around the world and get to taste wines with different price stickers on the label. Organizers say that they will display over 200 wines for the tasting, from countries all around the world, which is akin to a virtual tour of kosher wines, worldwide. This year’s special guests include Daniel Rogov, Israel’s leading s wine critic who will be signing copies of his newly released 2009 Guide to Israeli Wines. He will be joined by Mark Squires, senior wine critic at Robert Parker. Proceeds from a rare wine auction will benefit the bereaved families of the massacre in Mumbai, India. The food portion will be catered by Schick’s Caterers.
