Vintage Wine – Culinary Judaism

New Wine

Although vintage wine tastes good and has certain health benefits other situations require new wine. Certain sacrifices in the temple were accompanied by wine. These wine libations need to be from new wine made over the last year. The only discussion regards how young the wine for the libations need to be. (Encyclopedia Talmudit)

Drunkenness and alcoholism are unhealthy. Any health benefits discussed here are for Torah learning purposes and not medical advice.
