Yossie has been writing a weekly newsletter - Yossie's Wine Recommendations - on kosher wines, wineries and other wine-related topics for over seven years. You can follow Yossie on Twitter @yossieuncorked for daily wine recommendations and tips as well as other oenophilic tidbits. Growing up in Israel, Yossie was first introduced to quality kosher wine as a teenager by a family-friend who brought a French Bordeaux to his family's Seder. It was love at first sip and Yossie has spent many years tasting, learning and exploring his new hobby. After moving to New York from Israel about seven years ago, Yossie began receiving many requests from friends and family for wine recommendations and over seven years ago decided to launch Yossie's Wine Recommendations. After starting out as a friends and family based email distribution list, Yossie's Wine Recommendations is currently distributed weekly via email to thousands of subscribers around the world. Yossie and his newsletter have been mentioned in many leading publications including the New York Times, the Jewish Week and the Canadian Jewish News. Yossie lives in Manhattan with his wife and three young children where he practices corporate law at a major international firm.
