It is my understanding that Kosher Wine has to be made by Jews. Fair enough, but what steps/stages must specifically be performed by Jews?
Is the vineyard required to be owned by one of the faith? The day to day labor around the grapes taken care of by jews?
Picking time also all jewish? Creation of the grape juice, barreling/fermenting?
3)Bottling afterwards? Do the warehouse workers all have to be Jewish?
4)Retailing? If kosher wine is sold by non-Jews at a supermarket or liquor store, is it no longer kosher?
- Can any Jew make wine and have it be kosher, or are there special conditions that must be met?
