Vermouth

Guest Author - Paula S.W. Laurita

Discover vermouth and the museum that celebrates this creation.

In a previous article I wrote about the wines of the Piedmont. If you choose to visit this premier wine region of Italy don't miss il Museo Martini. You can also visit the excellent online museum. Here you will discover the "one place dedicated exclusively to the rich history of wine and vermouth."

In the town of Pessione di Chieri you will discover the cultural history of wine. It is located in the original Martini & Rossi factory. Wander through the museum (or site) and raising the simple and humble to the status of art.

What is Vermouth? Vermouth is an aromatised wine, which means that unlike a fortified wine (in which a spirit is added to significantly boost the volume of alcohol) additives are done purely to modify the flavour. It is heavily flavored with sugar, herbs, roots, flowers, and spices. It contains up to 19% alcohol.

Red or sweet vermouth is sometimes called Italian vermouth, and the clear, dry style, French vermouth. Dry vermouth was developed in France in the early 19th century by Joseph Nolly. Vermouth is used as an appetizer and as a mixer in cocktails It's sometimes served as an apéritif. Sweet vermouth is excellent on the rocks with a twist. It is also a key ingredient in many cocktails, including martinis and Manhattans. You can also use it in sauces for seafood.
