"Wine is an integral part of every part of Jewish life- Friday nights, every celebration, etc. And the only grapes were available were of the Labrusca variety, and they need sugar to make them palatable. So that's when the tradition- in fact, it's a new tradition, only 100 years old- of [sweet] kosher wine started."

--Jay Buchsbaum on A Taste of the Past

"The producers invariably want to be judged by the quality of the wine, not whether or not it's kosher. That's first and foremost."

"There's large chunks of the world that unfortunately can't afford high end wines. I keep seeing the same people from the same wineries everywhere I go." [9:00]

"Ultimately you want to make a wine that reflects its origins. If you make a wine that could come from anywhere - you're doing something that doesn't have too much of a soul." [20:00]
