Katz Sauvignon Blanc Agrodolce Vinegar
375 ml -
 Suisun Valley, California 

In Italian, agrodolce means "sweet and sour," and this nuanced vinegar beautifully expresses both. Albert and Kim Katz have long been fascinated with the idea of marrying the sweetness and complexity of wine grapes that have been left on the vine to concentrate the flavors and natural sugars, with the bright and crisp acidity of authentic Orleans Method vinegar. 

Serving Suggestions

The versatility of this elixir will expand the repertoire of every level of cook.

For a simple salad dressing, add just a drizzle of olive oil, along with salt and pepper. You'll need less oil with the balanced acidity in AgroDolce than in your regular dressing recipe.

Try Sauvignon Blanc vinegar in a pear, walnut, and blue cheese salad with a splash of walnut oil. It marries well with salads and other dishes that include goat cheese, or with goat cheese alone.

Mix it with a bit of mustard, black pepper, herbs and olive oil to marinate chicken for the grill or to roast. << br>
Toss with peak summer tomatoes for a refreshing appetizer with fresh mozzarella.

About AgroDolce Vinegar
AgroDolce in Italian means "sweet and sour." To achieve this, they harvest Sauvignon Blanc grapes from the Suisun Valley that borders Napa on its west side. The grapes have intentionally been left on the vine for at least a month to six weeks longer than if they were to be made into a dry finished wine.
By harvest time they are almost "raisiny" from their concentration of fruit and sugars. This is the same tradition used for hundreds of years to make the great Sauternes of France.

The unfermented juice from the grapes is blended with their proprietary wine vinegar and slowly aged in oak barrels until it becomes a balanced AgroDolce Sauvignon Blanc vinegar. The finished vinegar is almost sherry-like in color and complexity with hints of vanilla from the wood, and sweet apricot, fig and pear from the late-harvest grapes - but all supported by a strict backbone of crisp acidity from the vinegar base. This Katz Sauvignon Blanc vinegar is a must-have condiment for any pantry!
