Hi everyone. I'm really enjoying this message board as it is one of the only places I have found on the web where there is a knowledgeable discussion on kosher wine.
I know that 2001 is a shmitta year and different halachos apply to the Israeli wine for the vintage.
Can someone please help me by posting some halachos that are relevant to dealing with shmitta wine.
I have noticed on the back label on the shmitta year wines announcing that some producers have sold their vineyards for that production year in order that the wine should not have the restrictions that shmitta would impose on it.
I have heard that some producers have sold it correctly while there are problems with others.
It would be a great help if anyone were able to shed some light on the status of all shmitta wines.
