Kesser Wine - For Your Seder
Joseph Zakon winemaker and founder, of KESSER, FARBRENGEN AND JOSEPH ZAKON WINERY brands since 1981, introduced this year’s 5777 vintage of LOW ALCOHOL / EMINENT SEMI-DRY PASSOVER WINE.
Perfectly suited for your KUP so you can use your KUP after the four CUPS and during the CHAD GADYA!
With only 7% alcohol, we make the wine only from grapes. Nothing else is added as the natural yeasts on the grapes, naturally ferments the luscious juicy grapes into wine, slowly and under temperature controlled refrigeration.
The slight taste of sweetness in the wine is from the natural fructose in the grapes.
You must drink the Low Alcohol / Eminent Semi-Dry Passover Wine on Passover.
DO NOT DRINK AFTER PASSOVER
Unless One is still Experiencing the Freedom of an Eminent Passover.
For questions and information please
email the winemaker at: JosephZakonWinery@gmail.com
