It’s that time of year again to prepare for Passover. It’s a meaningful time for family, a holiday rich in tradition and of course, delicious food. Not to mention the importance of wine and spirits. One popular place to shop for such beverages is Tower Beer, Wine & Spirits, which has served Atlanta for more than 70 years.
Just in time for Passover, Tower has added a newly expanded kosher section. Not only does it carry classic kosher wine such as Manischewitz, Barkan and Rashi, but it has recently added some sparkling options, the Herzog Lineage collection and kosher spirits. Also featured are specific wines and spirits that are kosher for Passover.
At each of its two locations, seasoned wine consultants can help consumers pick the right choice. The Barkan wines are kosher for Passover, and Tower has several different varieties. There are also options for those who enjoy cabernet, chardonnay or merlot. If you prefer vodka or other spirits, there are several selections that are kosher as well.
Tower will also place special orders for those who have specific preferences, as long as it’s available in Georgia.
If you’re attending a Passover seder, you can also consider beverages for gift giving, one of my favorite topics. These kosher for Passover wines make thoughtful gifts for your host or hostess. You can’t really go wrong with a bottle of wine, and Tower has some festive gift bags for sale, which make gift giving on the go easy as well. You can get your hostess gift and beverage shopping for yourself done all in one place.
Putting kosher for Passover wines to a test, I recently ordered a couple of bottles of Bartenura Moscato from Tower after a trip to Italy. It was not only delicious, but it was kosher and organic! It brought me back to the fond memories I had of our trip. This wine comes in a beautiful blue bottle and is a wonderful gift. If you like sweeter wine, you will love this. It had notes of fruit and would be the perfect wine for you to sip this spring. Plus, the price was great at $11 a bottle.
If you are having a large seder, you can save by buying six or more bottles with Tower’s case discounts.
Tower is available by phone or online to answer questions about kosher items or to make special requests. If you order online, you pay for your items in the store. They will be ready when you arrive, and associates will even help you take your purchases to the car, which certainly makes shopping there quick and easy.
Tower has two locations: Buford Highway in Doraville and Piedmont Road, Buckhead. For online ordering, go to www.TowerWineSpirits.com. Peruse the wine section of the website and the kosher section without even leaving home. You can browse by price, size or variety, or you can look for that specific item that you’ve been searching for. But don’t delay. The clock is ticking. Passover is days away and is a wonderful time to build meaningful memories over your favorite beverages.
So eat, drink and celebrate your family and friends with time-honored traditions. L’chaim!
