Katz Zinfandel 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 together with bright and crisp acidity.

Serving Suggestions

The versatility of this new elixir will expand the repertoire of every level of cook. This excellent Zinfandel vinegar has a rich, complex sweet and sour flavor - try sipping a bit from a spoon. While the nose combines fruity with pleasantly sharp, the flavor is rich, mellow and winey.

Use this sweet and sour vinegar anytime you'd use red wine vinegar. For a simple salad dressing, add just a drizzle of olive oil, along with salt and pepper. You'll find you'll need less oil with the balanced acidity in AgroDolce than in your regular dressing recipe. It's great for sauteing, stir fries and marinades, or try it in our Sautéed Apples, Onions and Mushrooms.

It particularly complements tomatoes, and it's just wonderful reduced and sprinkled over figs, perhaps accompanied some semi-firm white cheese.

Perhaps the best surprise is that because there is enough sugar in agrodolce vinegar, you can reduce it in a pan to create wonderful syrupy topping for everything from fruit to steaks!

About the AgroDolce

The Zinfandel grapes that go into this product are harvested late, after their sugars are fully developed. The fermented juice from the grapes is added to oak barrels along with an established vinegar "mother." The finished Zinfandel vinegar has a jammy texture with fresh berry overtones and a tart, crisp finish.
