Passover Wines Made Easy

Marumatok Kosher Wines of Argentina

Marumatok is a family winery established in 2001 near the town of Mendoza. From 2007 they began to produce wines in their own winery, located in San Martín, under the supervision of the Orthodox Union. Their winery is one of the few that is fully devoted to kosher wine production. That factor, in addition to the technological investment that the family has made, assures top- quality products. They also import and distribute Kosher Champagne Pommery in Argentina.
