Yossi Berkowitz
VP Sales

With over 11 years experience selling kosher wine in the Tri-State area, Yossi Berkowitz is the proud owner of one of the most recognizable names in the industry.

He has become known in many circles as the “go-to” guy for honest and accurate information regarding all Kosher wine. In addition to sales, Yossi is known for his idiosyncratic wine writing. Always informative, usually quirky - and sometimes even intelligent - his TN’s (or tasting notes) have always found an appreciative audience.
