Does dry, sophisticated wine for Passover seem like an oxymoron? It might if a glass of syrupy sweet Manischewitz accompanied your matzoh balls and brisket on the Seder table. On Sunday, April 3, from 5 pm to 7 pm, the Park Slope Jewish Center is hosting the Second Annual Passover Wine Festival, and no, Manischewitz isn’t invited.

Instead, you’ll find a sampling of the best bottles from international kosher wineries (including Italian Barbara d’Asti), French Bordeaux and Burgundies, chardonnays from Australia and Hungarian dessert wines. After a few sips, you should be loose enough to dance to the evening’s musical "Wining by Klezmer," performed by the duo Annette Ezekiel on accordion and Jeremy Brown on violin.

Patty Lenartz, the owner of Slope Cellars in Park Slope, will give a short presentation on kosher wines and wine pairing. Like what you try? Bottles will be available for approximately $9-$30.

Swap the syrupy stuff for something worthy of your Seder table and even Elijah will thank you.

The Park Slope Jewish Center is located at 1320 Eighth Ave. at 14th Street. Admission is $10 for center members, $15 non-members. For more information, call (718) 768-1453.
