Israeli wine makers still make some of the tastiest Passover wines at very reasonable prices.Of course that isn’t to say that if you are a high roller you can’t easily spend big bucks on your Seder.

Of course if you’d rather not drink wine while you wait to see if Elijah will be at the door you have options as well: Gin, Vodka, Fig Brandy and my Favorite Kosher for Passover Single Malt Scotch!

L’Chaim!
