Who is Maurie Rosenberg?

Postby Andrew B » Tue Dec 11, 2012 1:53 pm

I was contacted by the publisher of the book Fruit of the Vine: The Complete Guide to Kosher Wine written by Maurie Rosenberg. Has anyone ever read this book? Does anyone know Mr. Rosenberg?

I have an old copy of his book (given to me as a gift by my mechutan, who had it gathering dust at his Jewish book and gift store), and I've spoken to him a few times. Seems like a nice guy, but I would very much doubt a comprehensive tome will come out of it.

Interesting. I wonder if the current book is a new edition or a reprint.

he is a semi-retired guy who is passionate about kosher wine as a hobbyist. Its a new book (basically updating the prior one) and is geared more toward newbies than hard core aficionados.

I skimmed the book. Not much wine info for anyone who know his cabernet from his chadonnay (he offers a very colorful intro for those who don't) but some interesting tidbits on wine in Jewish history, talmud, and halacha.

Shalom,

I am indeed a passionate champion for fine kosher wine. I am delighted to introduce myself and engage as a blog participant.

I think some of the reference here is made regarding my first book in 2005; “L’chaim! - Users Guide To Kosher Wine 1.0” but my new “Fruit of the Vine -The Complete Guide to Kosher Wine is now available on Amazon.com and receiving flattering review.

I am an enthusiastic teacher and an eager student. Feedback is always invited.

I am working on a guide to kosher ethanol. (spirits, whiskey, liqueur, beer and cider)

By way of further introduction there is a brief bio and interview available on my web site: http://www.guidetokosherwine.com/bio.php

L’chaim!,

Maurie Rosenberg

Thank you all for the kind words of welcome.

Among the many salutations and toasts of which I am aware "L'chaim!”; would appear to unique in its celebration of life, simcha and the simple grammatical certainty it is a plural word.

Clearly good kosher wine begs to be shared with others along with wine appreciation and knowledge.

I am delighted and grateful for opportunity to participate in that process.

Shalom,
