Description
 
Made from red or white wine, wine vinegar is the most commonly used vinegar in Mediterranean countries and central Europe. As with wine, better quality wine vinegars are matured in wood for up to twenty years and exhibit complex, mellow flavors. Wine vinegar usually has lower acidity than white or cider vinegars. Some of the more premium wine vinegars are made from wine varieties such as champagne, sherry or pinot grigio. To create our Italian Barrel-Aged White Wine Vinegar, white wine grapes are hand-pressed and sent to ferment in stainless steel. After reaching the desired alcoholic level, the wine is transferred to old oak barrels to undergo the conversion from alcohol to acetic acid. The final product is vinegar, which then continues to mature in the oak barrels--a process that can take up to three years.

Imported from Modena, Italy, home of our balsamic vinegars, this wine vinegar is a prime example of one of the most famous vinegars in the world. It is a bit tarter than our Barrel-Aged Red Wine Vinegar, which will delight those who revel in tongue-puckering tartness!

PAIRING SUGGESTIONS:


White wine vinegar is extremely versatile. Try it in an herbed potato salad, mixing it with our Italian Dolce Agogia or Cardinale extra virgin olive oils, green onions, tarragon, dry mustard, parsley, and salt and pepper and sprinkling it liberally over cooked white rose potatoes. When whisked with Dijon mustard and our Greek Koroneiki extra virgin olive oil, the result is aromatic vinaigrette. For a sweet, tart and savory appetizer, drizzle a combination of the Barrel-Aged White Wine Vinegar and our Caninese Italy extra virgin over prosciutto-wrapped melon.
