Royal Wines Celebrates 30 Years of Baron Herzog California Wines and Unification of Rothschilds

Bayonne NJ - Celebrating milestones has become a way of life for the celebrated Herzog family, whose winemaking goes back to pre-war Czechoslovakia. Its latest milestone is 30 years of production of the coveted Herzog varietals produced in California. It began with the family planting and raising 12 varietal grapes in their vineyard, which they are now celebrating in the form of an elegant Black and Gold Herzog Camouflage 2014 bottle. Baron Herzog California wines emerged as the flagship wines of the sprawling Royal Wines selections which today encompass hundreds of kosher wines from around the world, including some of the leading Israeli wines. Far from its food and wine headquarters in Bayonne NJ is its winery in Oxnard, California with its steady stream of visitors and award winning Tierra Sur kosher restaurant. Nathan Herzog holds the beautiful bottle as testimony of the success of the Herzog Winery in California which have won awards all over the world. Visitors to the company’s food and wine events now in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, London and Israel are likely to see the bottle. They are also likely to see the new Chen (in) a box, part of the growing trend of leading wineries to offer wine in a box.

And then there are the Rothschilds. The oft feuding three French winemaking families got together to produce the kosher Champagne Barons de Rothschild Brut Cuvee and the exclusive importer is Royal, another testimony of their leadership in the kosher world-wine business. The history of the Rothschilds as winemakers is as poignant as its banking history with all of its grandeur, intrigue, and color. That is exactly why the Herzogs are at the center of this new release of kosher champagne.
