Tu B’Shevat Seder – Wines for the Four Cups

It is the custom of many to have a Seder on Tu B’Shvat complete with many traditional foods as well as four cups of wine.

One of the fun ways to integrate the four cups into the Seder is by having four cups of four different wines in four different categories or colors.

Listed below are some quick recommendations for the four cups in each of the following four colors (categories) – White, Rose, Red and either Dark Red (Port) or Golden (Dessert Wine). I have included some wines in differing price ranges but all are great.
