Red Verjus

Red Verjus can be substituted for red wine vinegar or used for marinating. It is particularly good in sauces for meat or spicy foods. Many recipes also utilize Verjus in salad dressings. A quick online search will give you lots of great recipes for this tart, non-alcoholic grape juice.

Pouring Note: For simplicity purposes, we have identified our Verjus products by their pouring color -- not by typical red or white descriptions associated with various grape varietals.


Fusion Verjus Rouge, Napa Valley
Baby Bacchus Verjus, Trium
Abacela 2011 Verjus, Abacela Vineyards
Fusion Verjus Rouge, Napa Valley

After producing Fusion Verjus Blanc, Jim Neal, a young chef in California's Napa Valley, turned his attention to creating a red Verjus blended from from red and white grapes. From San Francisco to New York, many of America's great chefs now have red Fusion on their minds.

Verjus is tart -- not sweet!

Baby Bacchus Verjus, Trium

Southern Oregon's Rogue Valley is home to Kurt and Laura Lotspeich's vineyard of pampered Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc grapes. After several years of producing a limited amount of Verjus for the family, they bottled their first commercial Verjus from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes harvested in the fall of 2010. Now you can see what the family was enjoying!

Abacela 2011 Verjus, Abacela Vineyards

Oregon's Umpqua Valley is surrounded by the Klamath Mountains, the Coastal Range, and the Cascades. Because the region's adjacent valleys look nothing alike locals sometimes refer to the region as the Undred Valleys of the Umpqua rather than as a single valley. Abacela lies near the southern end of the valley above Lookingglass Creek. In October 2011 Abacela released its Verjus, a blend of Grenache and Graciano varietals. With only 178 cases produced, the 2011 bottling will likely sell out quickly as did the previous year's juice.

2011 Verjus de Cigare, Bonny Doon Vineyard
2011 Verjus de Cigare, Bonny Doon Vineyard

It is generally believed that to achieve any good or great thing, some substantive sacrifice is required. But such is not the case at Bonny Doon Vineyard in the seaside village of Santa Cruz. Green Grenache grapes are thinned from the ripening clusters that will become wine. But instead of being trodden underfoot, they are elevated to gourmet verjus -- a brilliant addition to the chef's toolbox. Verjus de Cigare occupies the middle ground--neither excruciatingly tart, nor overly sweet.
