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.

Non-kosher pickles have non-kosher ingredients.

That depends how religious you are. Orthodox Jews NEVER buy anything non-kosher. Yes, kosher wine can be stored in the same place as non-kosher wine as they're in sealed bottles.

The key difference between kosher and non-kosher wines is that the grapes in kosher wines must be from vines in their fourth year before they are harvested and used to make wine. This is because the first three years of the plants' lives are considered holy and untouchable; a sacrifice to God. In addition, kosher wine is so because an observant Jew must be the one to be physically handling the grapes throughout the entire process. Others make work on machinery or indirectly, but when it comes to actually touching and handling grapes, it must be an observant Jew.

It depends on the ingredients that are used.
