Mensch Wines—Kosher for Passover

Mensch Wines—Kosher for PassoverPassover begins this Saturday, March 27th and our Wine & Spirits department has picked out some delicious kosher Mensch wines from Covenant Winery for your Seder table.

Mensch wines are made with the new flash-détente technique that allows Covenant to flash-heat grapes straight out of the vineyard. They never heat the wine. Both white and red wines are barrel fermented with native yeast.

Zinfandel 2019
Mensch® Zinfandel is full-bodied and made in Lodi. It is fruit-forward, soft textured, and graced with an array of blackberry, raspberry, chocolate and spice flavors. Tannins are firm and give the wine additional structure.

Pair it with chicken, barbecue, and vegetarian dishes.

Roussanne 2019
Mensch Roussanne serves up a wonderful mineral core with bright acidity for good structure. Hints of stone fruit, citrus and jasmine give it the kind of quality you’d expect in a wine that costs twice as much. It is regularly among their highest rated white wines.

Pair it with lightly-grilled chicken thighs in a mix of salad greens.

About Covenant Winery
In 2003, Covenant founders Jeff Morgan and Leslie Rudd tasted an Israeli wine that inspired them to bring a new California perspective a 3500-year-old winemaking tradition. Today, Covenant’s 7,000-square-foot urban winery is situated in Berkeley.

Covenant wines are made from exceptional vineyards that stretch from Napa Valley, Sonoma, Lake County and Lodi in Northern California, to the Galilee and Golan Heights in Israel. They ferment with native yeast, and many are unfined and unfiltered. These winemaking techniques highlight what the land gives us naturally.
