I was just curious, is there a particular variety of wine that is typically used at the altar? Also, does the wine come from specific vineyards that were blessed for that purpose?

It was homemade, back home. Quite sour, from what I remember.
I would say, there is no universal rule.

I remember my sf announcing to a congregation once, "If this tastes more like dinner than Our Lord, don't worry" which, being translated, meant he'd sent the sub-deacon to the liquor store.

I know a priest who will use nothing but Kagor Garling.  16%. It is in a liqueur type bottle which has a church with Russian domes on the label.

He's a bit of a connoisseur of wines.  On the other hand his father and grandfather were priests so he may just be continuing a family tradition.

Here in the U. S. not sure about Other Places...

Serbian Orthodox Church uses the Kosher wines, Mogen David  and Manashevitzes..Not Sure if there Used  For Holy Communion though because they have sulfites in them ,,But they do for the Bride and Groom in drinking from the common cup at a marrage ceremony also at the Memorial Service in Blessing the wheat dish koljivo with wine ..Plus the body at the funeral service ,and Grave with the kosher wine.....

We do that, as well. Not the "kosher" part, but the priest pours a glass of wine crosswise into the coffin saying, IIRC, "you will sprinkle me with hyssop, and I shall be clean, you shall wash me and I will be wither than snow".
I didn't see this elsewhere, although it is no surprise the Serbs do it.

From an old Serbian Prota:

Najbolje je ono vino iz vinograda u Jerusalimu koje je bilo na Tajnoj veceri..........
Mnogi prave razna vina.......
Za mene licno je svako vino dobro i za sveti oltar prikladno, ako ga domacin sa
poboznoscu i cistotom napravi od cista grozdja i sa verom Hramu donese !

The best wine is that from the vineyard in Jerusalem which was used at the Mystical supper.......
Many people make different wines....
For me personally every wine is good and suitable for the holy altar, if the head of the house makes it with piety and purity from pure grapes and brings it to the Church with faith in Christ.

What about wine that has sulfites a preservative in it, is that allowed to be used for Holy communion...

I don't think so. I think the Prota means that that wine was the very best wine but it was a once only event and we shall never have that wine again.  Where did it come from?  Did Peter have a small vineyard?  Matthew?  The answer lies in the next world.

Strictly speaking No!   The wine used for Holy Communion has to be living wine, still fermenting wine, and not wine in which the life of the yeast has been stopped by sulfites.

These days in the cities it is difficult to find wines which are still living and working and most parishes use "stopped" wines. Living wine has become a luxury in villages.

Thanks Fr. For all this information....

I read the ingredient on the bottles and it said sulfites added i think to stop fermentation or a preservative.....

Michael's answer is still the best: the wine is "red, grape, alcoholic and sweet." As a practical matter, most of the red sweet wines are quite expensive and it would be extravagant indeed to mix such expensive wine with water (warm water to boot!). Ergo, Mogen David and other such sweet red wines..because their cost is reasonable (and because they are not consumed as wine.)

I was just curious, is there a particular variety of wine that is typically used at the altar? Also, does the wine come from specific vineyards that were blessed for that purpose?

There are a few varieties of wine that are more popular; Mavrodaphne from Greece/Peloponnesos (which isn't a brand, but variety, like Merlot), Commandaria from Cyprus (again, variety) are two that come to mind.  I've seen a number of parishes that use the kosher wines (Manichewiz/Mogen David), but I think in the few instances they did so because they didn't have an importer and the people who donated brought those varieties.

we use "Concord Red Wine" that comes in a big glass jug.  it is way to easy to drop, and I think that that's the reason why the carpet in the altar is red!   Cheesy
