Ribera del Júcar Protected Designation of Origin, with Elvi Wines at the first Biblical Wine Tasting Session.
The repertoire includes kosher Elvi Wines that have been produced in the Ribera del Júcar Protected Designation of Origin area and in other viniculture areas.
This Saturday, October 15th, the Hotel-Hostal Sport will be hosting the first Biblical Wine Tasting Session of Kosher in which the wineries Elvi Wines and the Celler de Capçanes will be participating with a repertoire that includes seven wines with four different designations of origin, amongst which Ribera del Júcar Protected Designation of Origin is to be found.
Moisés Cohen, Manager at Elvi Wines and the sommelier Sandra Aulló, who is also the Marketing Representative for Celler de Capçanes, will both be taking part in the wine tasting session.
The first Biblical Wine Tasting Session of the Priorat is a unique and exceptional initiative that the Hotel-Hostal Sport is organizing in order to promote innovative wine-gastronomic activities in the Priorat region in Tarragona, the same in collaboration with the two wineries that are producing kosher wines.
This session is actually the third wine tasting session with these characteristics that is organized in Spain this year, following-up on the sessions that were held in Cordoba in June coinciding with the 10th International Festival of Sephardic Music and in Girona with reason of the Gastronomic Forum that was held last February.
The wine tasting session, which will be held in the Les Voltes hall of the Hotel-Hostal Sport, will not only count with a wide-ranging repertoire, but also with a very selective one:
Adar 2007 DO Ribera del Júcar
Ness blanco 2009 DO Ribera del Júcar
Flor de Primavera 2009 DO Montsant
Flor de Flor de Primavera 2008 DO Montsant
El 26 2006 DOQ Priorat
Clos Mesorah 2009 DO Montsant
Herenza crianza 2008 DOC Rioja
A degustation dinner will be offered in the Monstant hall of the hotel itself once the wine tasting session has concluded, during which it will also be possible to continue enjoying the wines that will have been introduced in the previous tasting session.
Kosher Wines (in Hebrew “fit” or “allowed to be eaten”)
Kosher wines are suitable for the Jewish religious rite and they must be controlled by a rabbi throughout the entire process of production, with the process ending with a certificate of validity. The grape vines harvested in the land of Israel must be a minimum of four years old and the soil must rest every seven years, while two months before the harvest a final organic fertilizer is to be added. Winemaking is executed in vats that have been exclusively dedicated to this type of kosher wine from the very beginning. Yeasts, enzymes and all products that are used must be likewise kosher certified. Bentonite, egg white or mere precipitating of the wine may be employed in its clarification. During the entire process only one person, who must be Jewish, is allowed to see the wine, to the point that not even the winery’s winemaker can participate in this process. Hence we find the reason why everything is sealed. All machinery and objects used in the wine production process must be previously cleaned under the supervision of a rabbi.
Normally in Jewish communities about 10% of the agricultural production, including wine is separated and reserved for the most disadvantaged population. It is only once the rabbi considers that production is correct and that it duly complies with the rite that the kosher seal is stamped on the product.
The Cohen Family, owners of Elvi Wines, is the first family of Sephardic origin that is once again dedicated to the production of Kosher wines in our land since the year 1492.
