What wine should I get as a hostess gift for a shabbat meal?
I always get Joyvin or another ginger ale type wine because that is what I like but it serms nobody else does and it often goes unopened.
What do people actually appreciate?

I don't waste good wine on people that don't know the difference.... But if they DO there is plenty to choose from...

It depends on what you like, and how much you want to spend...

Kosher wine prices are insane outside of Israel, I have a heart attack every time I walk into a liquor store in NY...

Manischewitz costs $9.50 to $10 for a 1.5 liter bottle. That seems reasonable compared to prices of other stuff.

I thought Joyvin and Moscato are the 'standards'that everyone likes?

 

Maybe they don't open it because there's words on the seal? They're in A"A or some other excuse?

"Pink Muscat" is a Baron Herzog wine, nice option if they don't want the soda-sweet moscato. Otherwise, Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot if they like to drink wine but are not any sort of wine snob ("connoisseur")


'At the hearing, Judge Craig made no secret about how she viewed the lawsuit, at various points characterizing Geltzer’s positions as “ridiculous” and “absurd”.  Her opinion, while slightly more measured than her comments during oral argument, dismissed Geltzer’s claims as “based on a fundamentally flawed legal theory that is . . . at odds with common sense.” '

Or they could be saving it for a special occasion: Wedding, Bar Mitzvah, arrival of the Messiah, etc.

It's not nice to bring soda-pop wine. It's cheap. Either a nice wine or something else entirely.
