From the Rav’s Desk: Does wine and grapes join for after blessing

  1. Question: [Sunday, 20th Kisleiv 5781]

I had a little bit of wine to drink while I was eating grapes. I did not have enough individually of the grapes or wine to be able to say an after blessing but if I were to join them together then it would be over the minimum amount. My question is should an after blessing be said and if so which one?



You do not say an after blessing.

The explanation: Liquids and solids do not join to make up the minimum measurement required to be consumed within the time of Achilas Peras, in order to be obligated in an after blessing. This applies even if they are they same food, one a liquid and the second a solid, such as in our case when one ate grapes and drank grape juice.
