The Beracha of Hagefen Covers Other Drinks

The Beracha of Hagefen Covers Other Drinks
Day: Friday
Date: February 5, 2016
Parshat: Mishpatim
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: 206

The beracha of hagefen on wine and grape juice also covers any other drinks had during that sitting. Meaning, one who said or listened to hagefen at a kiddush on Shabbat does not then say shehakol on any drinks he has during the kiddush. It is important to note that the beracha only covers drinks, it does not cover other shehakol foods such as meat, eggs, or cheese. However, if he said shehakol on a drink, even if doing so was a mistake because he already had wine or grape juice during that sitting, then the shehakol will cover anything else with the same beracha had at that sitting.
