OUR VINEGAR IN GASTRONOMY

The aromatic concentration that the Sherry Vinegar acquires through the system of “Criaderas & Solera”, reflected in its dark mahogany colour, makes “CAPIRETE” Sherry Vinegar a peerless condiment in world gastronomy. Only a few drops of this vinegar are sufficient to turn any dish into a culinary fiesta. Its sharp, yet harmonious bouquet transports us to the magic world of the cellars; sunlight filtering through esparto blinds dimly illuminating the oaken butts. On the palate, the vinegar’s acid notes contrast with the surprising roundness that it has acquired during years of ageing.
