For the gourmand
With its delicate flavor and complexity, La Guinelle Banyuls Vinegar ups the ante for salad dressing. Nathalie Herre and Michel Giurt start with Banyuls wine that’s aged in barrel for four years; then they add the mother and let it transform the wine into vinegar over the course of eight or more months. With the gentle sweetness of Banyuls and the refreshing tartness of vinegar, it’s almost good enough to drink on its own.
