I would like to make a suggestion for your wine reviewers. Trader Joe's is carrying a new line of kosher wines. I have never heard of anything like them before. For red wines they have some Tempranillo blends from Spain. Terrenal Tempranillo/Cabernet Sauvignon $3.99 Terrenal Tempranillo/Granacha $3.99 They also have a blend of Chardonnay and Macabeo for $3.99 (also Spanish also Terrenal . They also have Sara Bee Moscato $5.99 (Italian) and perhaps Banero – Prosecco $7.99 (Italian)I don't know if this one is still available. This is something extraordinary in terms of pricing. The story of kosher wines no longer being sweet is old. Now most kosher wine are horribly over priced. That's why I find this amazing. The wines are well worth the money and priced appropriately.
