Kosher preparation.

The main consideration in kosher food is that all the ingredients must be kosher, and the machinery that the food is processed on should not have been used to make non-kosher foods.

Wine is different than food because of a sensitive historical situation. Because idolators used to offer wine to their idols, kosher wine must be protected under the supervision of a religious Jew or certifying agency.

Today, the way you can be sure that wine or processed foods are kosher is that they have the symbol of a kosher certifying agency.
