Gloves and Non-mevushal Wine


Due to a rabbinic prohibition intended to encourage intramarriage by limiting Jews' ability to socialize with non-Jews, wine which is handled by people who are not Jewish is not kosher. However, due to reasons beyond the scope of this email, wine which has been boiled does not lose its kosher status; this wine is called "yayin mevushal".

Wearing gloves does not help regarding handling wine which is not mevushal.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Yoreh Deah 2:51)

Have a great day,
