Yossie’s Corkboard is the home of a weekly newsletter on kosher wine written by Yossie Horwitz.
One of the world’s premier kosher wine educators, Yossie has been tasting, drinking and learning about wine for over 25 years and been writing his weekly newsletter – Yossie’s Wine Recommendations – for almost 15 years.
Growing up in Israel, Yossie was first introduced to quality kosher wine as a teenager when a family friend who brought one of the earliest kosher French Bordeaux wines to his family’s Seder. It was love at first sip and Yossie has spent the subsequent years tasting and learning as much about wine as possible.
Following a move to New York 14 years ago, Yossie’s Wine Recommendations was launched. Initially intended as a friends and family based email distribution list, Yossie’s Wine Recommendations grew rapidly and is currently distributed via email to nearly 10,000 subscribers around the world.
Yossie is the founding judge of the Jewish Week’s Kosher Wine Guide, author of the annual Pesach Wine Buying Guide and founder of the global Rosh Chodesh Club (“RCC”) initiative. Over the years Yossie and his newsletter have been mentioned in many publications including the Jerusalem Post, the New York Times, the Jewish Week and the Canadian Jewish News.
Yossie currently lives in Manhattan with his wife and four young children where he practices transactional corporate law at a major international firm. He can be reached at: yossie at yossiescorkboard dot com.
