ORGANIC WHITE WINE VINEGAR

VINEGARS

The natural fermentation and ageing of selected organic Italian grapes yields a white wine vinegar with a mild, fruity flavour, ideal for use in marinades, sauces and vinaigrettes. Unpasteurised, unfiltered and with no added sulfites, our vinegar is rich in live bacteria and contains the nutritious 'mother'.

Wine vinegar has a very old history in Italy where it has been prized since Roman times for its therapeutic properties and culinary uses.

PREPARATION
Use in salad dressing, sauces and vinaigrettes.

COOKING TIPS
  • Use vinegar to freshen wilted vegetables such as spinach or lettuce by soaking them in 2 cups of water and 1 tablespoon of vinegar.
  • Use vinegar as a substitute for lemon juice; half measure of vinegar is equivalent to a full measure of lemon or lime juice.
  • Use vinegar as a seasoning at the place of salt for foods such as potatoes or other vegetables.
COOKING IDEAS
  • White wine vinegar, with its subtle sweetness and clarifying acidity, is ideal for pickling seasonal fruits and vegetables.
  • Perfect to make both traditional hollandaise and béarnaise sauce.
  • Make a vinaigrette by whisking 1 tablespoon of white wine vinegar with 2-3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, season with salt and black pepper to taste and add a teaspoon of dijon mustard, or finely chop one small shallot.
  • Add a couple tablespoons of white wine vinegar to brighten up fresh side dishes like potato salads, coleslaw, and cucumber salads.
  • Add to water or stock when braising something like chicken breasts.
STORAGE
Store closed in a cool dark place, away from heat source and direct sunlight. Any cloudiness or sediment does not affect the quality of the vinegar. This is a sign of our natural production method.
