Scoping Out Kedem Kosher Winery in New York’s Hudson Valley

Kesem Winery OpenToday I was driving through New York’s Hudson River Valley with my daughters, and before stopping at a roadside stand for raspberries we scoped out Kedem, the kosher winery. The winery sits just off Route 9W, which winds its way through the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains and the Shawangunk Wine Trail. Just a few miles to the east lies the Hudson River.

It was made in a factory outside of Tunis that employed most of the members of a synagogue I sometimes attended just south of Carthage. A shot of bokha always brought back the year I spent in Tunis and people I knew there.

The winery is available for private events in the wine cellar, mansion, and garden. They cater. If you’re planning an event in New York State, they can ship kosher wine to your door.
