  1. I 5 aromi in aceto di vino

    Aromatic Wine Vinegar

    When we made the decision to restore vinegar making at Volpaia we come up with a unique idea. Besides the classic red and white wine vinegars, we would not produce the usual aromatized varieties using a single herb like tarragon or basil, but ones flavoured with bouquets of different aromas. We began with a selection of some seventy different aromas culled from the garden greens, herbs and flowers on the estate, as well as more exotic spices, macerating each single aroma in both white and red vinegar. We began a two-year period of painstaking experimentation during which we tested various blends. It was a process of trial and error, discovering compatible tastes, balancing flavours, eliminating aromas that overwhelmed others. Finally, we concocted five different recipes. We have tried them with success on everything from salads and fish to fruit and ice cream.
    • Herbs: Is a blend of fennel, juniper, rosemary, thyme, balm, bay, garlic and chilli pepper.
    • Spices: combines cloves, nutmeg and black pepper with several herbs to temper the taste.
    • Vegetable garden: basic flavors of the Italian vegetable garden.
    • Fresh: White wine vinegar base and tastes of cool peppermint and green anise.
    • Flowers: Is a white wine vinegar aromatized with a pot pourri of antique rose, marigold, borage, lavander, elder, bitter orange, clary and sage.

  2. Aceto di vino bianco Volpaia

    White Wine Vinegar

    The method Volpaia uses to make the vinegar itself is a process as carefully controlled as wine making. To make fine vinegar you must begin with good quality wine. This wine slowly percolates into a tank through three tiers of stainless-steel baskets loosely filled with wood shavings and dried vine (grape) cutting. These allow the wine to oxidize and provide a support for the bacteria. This method, which takes about two weeks, preserves the aroma and flavour of the wine, whereas industrially produced vinegar, which can be made in a day, smells and tastes mostly of acetic acid. Volpaia red wine vinegar, like fine wine is aged up to a year in large chestnut vats and then in small oak barrels. Learn More
