Is it necessary to check home-grown grapes that will be used to make wine?


Shalom, I’d like to use the grapes from our home garden to make wine. Do I need to check them as per Rav Vayeh’s instructions?

I’m asking because the end process of making the wine is pour the liquid through a filter, which should catch any bugs.

Thank you very much for your extremely helpful site.


If the end process will be that the wine is filtered well, then it doesn’t have to be checked beforehand. There is however a preference though t wash them well beforehand

Best wishes
