All wine served at a function under our supervision must be certified Kosher.
As the result of special Kashrut regulations that apply only to wine, Kosher wine comes in 2 different varieties: Mevushal and non-Mevushal. A non-Mevushal wine needs to be handled by a Jewish person. Mevushal wine is wine that has been pasteurised. Once this is done, there are no special rules that apply to it.
It is simpler to use a Mevushal wine. This is served in the ordinary manner by the catering team. However, if you wish to use a Mevushal wine, we allow it in one of 2 ways:
- The wine is set out on the tables and guests serve themselves. Either our Mashgiach will open all of the bottles before the meal - or a corkscrew is left on each table next to the wine for the guests to open themselves.
- The wine is served by our Mashgiach. However, you should be aware that there will be only one Mashgiah available for this - and this could cause some delay in the wine going around to all of the tables.
