Under the Rabbinical supervision and authorization of Rabbi Marc Rubenstein, Gershon Bachus is the only Southern California Winery to offer Kosher Style wine to for the Jewish patrons who seek full-flavor handcrafted boutique wines. Our Kosher Style wines offer the same flavor, structure and longevity as the most well known brands on the market today. Rabbi Marc began working directly with Dakota Denton, the Jewish Winemaker and the owners Kenneth and Christina Falik in 2014 to begin the required rituals before harvest right through to the end of bottling. All of the 2015 releases from Gershon Bachus will bear the Kosher Style Wine insignia. For those patrons who do not follow the faith, nothing has changed. The red wines from the Gershon Bachus Vintners Estate are big, bold and balanced.
