Alois Gölles senior set the foundations with planting apple orchards in the 1950’s. His son, also Alois, revived the Austrian vinegar culture in the 1980’s (and later Schnapps) by focusing on fruitiness and mild spiciness rather than pure acidity. Alois is somewhat of a food guru among connoisseurs in Austria.
Gölles red wine vinegar is made from a blend of Austrian key red wine varieties Zweigelt, Blaufränkisch and St. Laurent. Harmonic and mild it is aged in oak for 2 years. Great with antipasti and other Mediterranean dishes and salads.
