Buying and Using Shmita Wine

You may not buy wine from grapes grown in Eretz Yisrael during a shmita year unless you buy it from an otzar bet din. Even if you do buy from an otzar bet din, it is not recommended to buy shmita wine since you:
  • May not waste even one drop,
  • Must use it only in the normal way, and
  • May not dispose of the residue in the bottle until it has become unpotable.
