Skyview Wine & Spirits
The largest stock of kosher wines in the United States sits on the shelves of this Bronx retailer. Rated 27 points (out of 30) by Zagat, the shop keeps approximately 600 bottles from more than 20 countries (including 176 from Israel) in stock alongside a selection of non-kosher wines and spirits. From fall to spring, there are regular kosher tastings Thursday evenings and Friday afternoons, as well as scotch tastings on Sundays. Throughout the year, the store also hosts wine-related fundraisers for synagogues, Jewish organizations, and other non-profit groups in the region.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
