On Tuesday Februray 22, 2011 our very own Jamie Geller joined other Jewish Cookbook authors, food celebritites and winemakers at the 5th Annual Kosher Food and & Wine Experience at Pier 60 in New York.  300 wines from all over the world were available for tasting from wineries including Herzog, Yatir, Castel, Capcanes, Elvi, and Goose Bay.  Royal Wine also debuted their Herzog Special Edition Chalk Hill Warnecke Vineyard 2008 and Oak Knoll Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, a new line of Gamla Reserves and wines from the Alexander Winery in Israel.  With Purim and Passover just a few weeks away, kosher consumers were able to taste some of the outstanding kosher wines available for their holiday celebrations.
