Has anyone tasted any of these wines? They are made by a company called "Marumatok S.A.". www. marumatok.com.ar

From the website:
Our company has been a pioneer regarding prime- quality wines production in Argentina. As a result, Marumatok S.A. became recognized for its brands “Valero Especial” y “Tekiah”.
From 2007 we began to produce in our own winery, located in San Martín, province of Mendoza, under the supervision of the Orthodox Union. Our winery is one of the few that is fully devoted to kosher wine production. That factor, in addition to the technological investment that the Company made, assures top- quality products.
Since the launching of the 2007-vintage products, “Tekiah”, “Castello D´Atri” and “Emuna”, we attempted to satisfy all the public that drinks kosher wine with premium- quality products.

Yossie, Hi...

A great many Christians and others believe that the habit of touching on wood has some connection to the cross of Jesus. Not true. The "touch wood" syndrome started at least 1000 years before Jesus' birth and relates entirely to the god Pan. Pan, it should be understood, is a malicious little god and everytime he hears of good news he does something to punish the person hoping for a positive outcome. Because Pan resides in and hides in trees, the pagan custom was to knock on wood in order that the noise and vibrations would confuse the god so that he could not hear about the good news.

Sometimes I think I should be touching wood more often, because every time I think I have neared the end of my research for one of my wine books, I breathe a sigh of relief because that means the wines are either tasted, on hand for tasting or on the way for tasting. I guess Pan hears that sigh of relief and his punishment for me is to let me know about yet another winery that has to be explored!

In short, until your post I had not heard of this new venture into kosher wines. I may not be especially fond of Pan but I do thank you for bringing it to my attention. As soon as I hit the submit button with this note, I shall send off a few emails to learn what I can. I shall (touch wood) report back.

Best

Looks like this is the winery that kosherwine.com stocks. Some of the wines from this winery are on sale, and Daniel said in another thread "I have tasted some of their wines" (denoting that the event was not memorable). Some of the Tekiah wines look nice, but not sure. The reserve wines are not on sale, but are also not too expensive. Wonder if others have had these wines?
