Warrenton, Va. — Walking through the cellar of Molon Lave Vineyards, the tape bearing the words “void if tampered” wraps around the knobs of tanks and the corks of barrels.

Winery In India Passover is a spring festival that honors the emancipation of the Israelites from slavery in ancient Egypt. Celebration of Passover involves avoidance of leavened grains, i.e., grains exposed to yeast. This includes grains combined with water and left to stand for more than 18 minutes. Thus most breads, cereals, pastas and alcoholic drinks are excluded. But celebration of Passover also involves drinking wine. Strict observance of Passover requires wines that are “Kosher for Passover.” Kosher wines contain only kosher ingredients and are produced under the supervision of Jews who observe the Sabbath. Wines that are Kosher for Passover additionally have been fermented using yeast from a source other than bread mold.
Vineyards In India Manischewitz makes well-known Kosher for Passover wines. I hadn’t tasted one since before I knew much about wine. So of course I had to try a bottle: Manischewitz non-vintage Concord Grape “American” ($5): It is sweet and nearly lacking in aroma, but this is a decent wine with medium intensity, good balance, modest complexity and a long finish. And obviously the price is right. Serve as dessert or with spicy entrees.

I spoke with Thomas Lents, executive chef of Sixteen in the Trump Tower, about his latest seasonal menu. Actually there are two menus—one called "Day" and one called "Night," each built around foods associated with those times of day. While we were talking Dan Pilkey, the restaurant's sommelier, came up and I was especially eager to ask him about a decision he made about the wine pairings—to serve only biodynamic wines with the menus.
Wines Of India Biodynamic farming is a particular movement within organic agriculture, devised in the early 20th century by the Austrian philosopher and spiritualist Rudolf Steiner, who also created the Waldorf school system (and the exercise system that gave an 80s band their name ). What distinguishes it is that, besides a generally more natural, nonindustrialized approach to growing, it includes a fair amount of ritualized practice tied to vaguely mystical stuff about the stars and lunar cycles and so on, such as burying a steer horn full of manure in the fall on a particular day and using it to spray the plants in the spring.
Winery In India Mainstream agricultural scientists tend to look at this as agri-voodoo, but that's kind of missing Steiner's point. Reacting (like William Morris in England and others) to the rapid dehumanization of the industrial revolution, Steiner sought to reintroduce peasant-style rituals tied to the seasons to help nurture the farmer at least as much as the farm. A farmer who plants according to a mythology of the stars and the seasons is likely to be more connected to his land than one who sits in an office and orders chemicals out of a catalog. That at least seems to be the reason for its widespread popularity in the world of wine in particular, with biodynamic wines a growing segment of the market and many labels bearing a certification of biodynamic practices called Demeter .

After evaluating 916 wines from Washington, Oregon, British Columbia and Idaho, 20 professional wine judges deemed a red blend from a Walla Walla Valley winery as the top wine of the second annual Great Northwest Wine Competition.
Wine From India The judging, held April 2-3 at the Columbia Gorge Hotel in Hood River, Ore., is among the largest competitions of Pacific Northwest wines. All the wines were evaluated blind, meaning the judges knew what kind of wine they were tasting but not who made it.
