For years, KFWE has been the quintessential night out. If you live in New York, Los Angeles, Tel Aviv, or London, it’s the opportunity to try the newest wines and trendiest dishes from the hottest restaurants in the kosher world today.
This year, with the pandemic in mind, KFWE is going virtual! Appropriately called KWFV (virtual), this year’s show will be the perfect “night in” with live taste-alongs featuring winemakers from some of the most prestigious wineries in Israel, France, Spain, California, Italy, and Argentina, hosted by Jay Buchsbaum, Gabriel Geller, and Erik Segelbaum, Food & Wine Magazine Sommelier of the Year 2019! Our various hosts will guide you through tastings and answer some questions from the crowd throughout the evening!
You can’t have a food and wine event without the food. This year, attendees will have the opportunity to cook along with Gabe Garcia from Tierra Sur at Herzog Wine Cellars and host of Kosher.com’s Under the Hood, Kosher.com personalities Naomi Nachman and Esty Wolbe, James Beard Award Winner Michael Solomonov, La Boîte owner Lior Lev Sercarz, and Nir Weinblut of La Gondola. They’ll be cooking in real time to give you quick tips and tricks from the comfort of your own home – an opportunity that doesn’t come along very often.
“Follow along at your own leisure, have someone, even several join you – especially if they love wines. Get into comfortable clothes at a comfortable but supportive table and make sure you have a good glass.” –Jay Buchsbaum
There has never been a virtual event of this scale before. EVER! It will be a truly extravagant event, and anyone can attend no matter where you are in the world, offering access that you can’t get in person.
“Although I won’t be with the attendees physically, they will get to have a chance to get to know me better. The virtual event allows people to spend more time with me than they would at the live event, and I get the opportunity to teach some of my secrets and share great food and the Tierra Sur experience with them.” –Gabe Garcia
“l will share personal anecdotes and insights which were not possible at the in-person events in any sane manner.” –Jay Buchsbaum

Choosing those 25 wines was no easy task. They feature the best of the best wines out there! As Jay Buchsbaum puts it, “Hundreds of wines were considered for these wine kits. Narrowing it down to these 25 was excruciating. After all, there are so many amazing wines that could have been included!”

“I’ll show the viewers at home how I see the ingredients, how I try to build flavor, and showcase a couple of classic techniques I use that never go out of style!” –Gabe Garcia
