Since a Nazir is not allowed to drink wine, is wine vinegar also prohibited to Nezirim?

  • Probably "Nezirim", no?

  • @DoubleAA Probably....I considered using the halacha tag myself, but decided against b/c it's not really הלכה למעשה....

Yes, see Bamidbar 6:3

ג מיין ושכר יזיר, חמץ יין וחמץ שכר לא ישתה

he shall abstain from wine and strong drink: he shall drink no vinegar of wine, or vinegar of strong drink (JPS 1917)

For elaboration, see Mishneh Torah Hilchos Nezirus Chapter 5.
