Welcome to Yossie’s Corkboard, home of a weekly newsletter on kosher wine written by Yossie Horwitz.
Yossie has been tasting, drinking and learning about wine for over 25 years and has been writing a weekly newsletter – Yossie’s Wine Recommendations – on kosher wines, wineries and other wine-related topics for more than a decade. You can follow Yossie on Twitter @yossieuncorked for daily wine recommendations and tips as well as other oenophilic tidbits.
Growing up in Israel, Yossie was first introduced to quality kosher wine as a teenager by a family friend, who brought one of the first available kosher French Bordeaux wines to his family’s Seder. It was love at first sip and Yossie spent many subsequent years tasting, learning and exploring his new hobby. After moving to New York from Israel thirteen years ago, Yossie began receiving many requests from friends and family for wine recommendations and ten years ago decided to launch Yossie’s Wine Recommendations. Initially structured as a friends and family based email distribution list, Yossie’s Wine Recommendations grew rapidly and is currently distributed via email to thousands of subscribers around the world on a near-weekly. Over the years Yossie and his newsletter have been written up or mentioned in many publications including the Jerusalem Post, the New York Times, the Jewish Week and the Canadian Jewish News.
Yossie lives in Manhattan with his wife and four young children where he practices corporate law at a major international firm.
