Royal Wine Corp, the largest producer of premier kosher wines and spirits, kicks off the 18th Annual Kosher Food & Wine Experience (KFWE) Monday, February 26, where it continues to be a leading key influencer in Passover wine trends.
This year the Kosher Food & Wine Experience 2024 NY (KFWE) is relocating to New Jersey where it will highlight top notch wines and spirits, exclusively open to members of the trade and media. Nearly 1,000 kosher wines, and a plethora of spirits including whiskies, bourbons, vodkas, tequilas, rum, gin, and cordials will be on hand for sampling and tasting.
“At Royal Wine Corp we continue to support the wineries in Israel, which are among some of the top-rated wines in the world. To that end, this year KFWE will feature breakout sessions featuring wines from Israel, as well as separate sessions focused on new whiskeys and tequilas, and a look at the Herzog Wine portfolio from our Oxnard, California winery.” says Gabriel Geller, director of PR, Royal Wine Corp.
“Our portfolio consists of world-class wines that happen to be kosher. In the past year alone, hundreds of non-kosher restaurants have put selections of our portfolio on their lists because they recognize the quality and value of our wines,” adds Jay Buchsbaum, VP Wine Education, Royal Wine Corp.
