Kosher wine has always made more sense on the dinner table than the picnic blanket, but that’s about to change. Now, you can get the hekshered stuff in a box.

First out was the Italian “To Life Box Wine by L’Chaim,” both a red and a white in a 3-liter box (the equivalent of four bottles). This is a joint project between Ralph Mizraji, a Miami-based entrepreneur, and Enovation Brands, Inc., the U.S. presence of Enoitalia SpA, Italy’s largest volume wine producer.

The most drastic change to the kosher wine industry in the last decade has been how Israeli wines have come to dominate the market. Today, for many consumers, “kosher wine” and “Israeli wine” are all but synonymous. Yet as little as 15 years ago, if you wanted good kosher table wines, you’d look primarily to France and California; and while all the attention these days may be focused on Israel, both France and California continue to produce some very good kosher wines.

Much has been written about the purported health benefits of wine. According to various medical studies, moderate consumption, like at most eight ounces a day, has been shown to decrease the risk of heart disease, increase lifespan, make hearts attack less likely, strengthen bones, cut the incidence of Type 2 diabetes and reduce the risks of stroke, cataracts, depression and some cancers. These benefits are mostly attributable to red wine; however recent studies have begun to show that white wines can at least offer some cardiac protective benefits.

For those who enjoy wine on a regular basis, belonging to a wine club is an excellent way to keep an adequate supply on hand. Many wineries run them. The wines are customarily selected especially for subscribers and provide discounts, early releases, special events and often a variety or blend that may not be available to the general public.

Why is it that a religious Jew will fill his cup to the brim with wine on a Friday night, while a religious Muslim would never touch a drink?
