GREAT VINEGAR. MOTHER MADE US DO IT. ®

Better Than Champagne Chardonnay Wine Vinegar

$13.00

Made with chardonnay from California this vinegar would be a blanc de blancs if it were a champagne. Luckily it is not, it is better.  It is slow fermented in small batches using a unique process from the early 1800s and aged in 25-gallon American oak barrels.

Tell Me More

Our Better Than Champagne Vinegar is just that. It is not champagne vinegar, it is its' better cousin from across the pond and we couldn’t be happier with how this little upstart turned out.

Naming Note:  Why don't we call it Champagne vinegar? We told you- it's better... AND we strive to make vinegars with a sense of place and that respect that sense of place in other foods.  Champagne vinegar should come from the Champagne region of France.  Our vinegar is made from traditional champagne grapes (ie chardonnay) but it is made in our vinegar works in New England, not France.  This beautiful vinegar reflects the American wine tradition and builds on champagne-inspired vinegar flavor profiles.

Worth Waiting For

Modern vinegars have lost their way, so we stepped back in time to recreate a process from 1823.  Our equipment doesn’t exist anymore so we remade it in partnership with local universities.

After slow fermentation our vinegars are barrel aged before being hand bottled raw and unfiltered. It all takes a lot more time and care but we think the results are spectacular. I hope you will too.

Vinegars with a Sense of Place

We create vinegars with flavor profiles that reflect a sense of place by working exclusively with American wines, ciders, and brews.

 Our vinegar works is housed in the blacksmith shop for an old textile mill complex in the heart of New England that is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Simply the best vinegar I’ve ever tasted. The red wine vinegar is also fabulous.

I have only tried this so far and REALLY enjoyed it it is expensive but worth it can larger bottles be bought which would reduce the cost per ounce I would really love to use your product exclusively but the price is prohibitive

Love the product

Definitely Different

This is the first bottle I opened and tried, and it is definitely different from other white wine vinegar. The flavor is much more nuanced than other wine vinegar I have tried. The vinegar seems less sharp or harsh for lack of a better term, and has subtle flavor characteristics. I will buy it again and I look forward to opening up the other varieties I purchased.

Best wine vinegar ever

Best white wine vinegar, bar none!
My marinades, sauces, and dressings have never been tastier. This vinegar compliments my cooking style perfectly!
I completely trust this company. I will never purchase vinegar, any vinegar, from a store ever again.
