KATZ Trio Red Wine Vinegar
Our KATZ Trio barrel-aged red wine vinegar is crafted to mirror the classic "Meritage" wines where small lots of red wine varietals are blended to create wines with great structure and character. Sonoma Trio vinegar is made this way by blending selected lots of Merlot, Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon. The finished red wine vinegar has a lovely garnet color with nuances in the flavor of sweet ripe berries. Quantities are limited.
A few years ago with the help of some local grape grower friends, who share our passion for traditional and authentic foods, we ventured out to make wine vinegar in the centuries-old Orleans Method, first perfected in France. Most vinegar today is produced by a system that takes just hours, but removes most of the taste and the nutrients. In contrast, authentic vinegar is converted slowly over many months and gently from quality wines with the starter (called the 'mother') in oak barrels. This is the way we do it in our Suisun Valley Vinegar House, and the result is a startlingly rich elixir with fine balance and subtle complexity. Our vinegars are used everyday in some of the best restaurant kitchens in America.
