Espelt Moscatell Vinegar has the vibrancy of popping a fresh grape into your mouth. It dances across the tongue upon first taste. Hints of citrus and green grape skins highlight this crisp vinegar making it ideal for quick pickles and salads. Toss thin slices of cucumber and white onion with Espelt Moscatell, a pinch of salt and a touch of sugar. Marinate for thirty minutes and you have a wonderful side for grilled meats, fish or a delightful snack.
Along the region of Emporda-La Costa Brava, where the breeze from the Mediterranean catches the faint smell of limestone and clay, it is said that winemaking dates back to the 5th century BC. There, rocky mineral-filled terrain, winds from the Tramuntana mountain range and the salty sea converge off this northeastern coast of Spain, one of the country’s most beautiful winemaking regions. It is here that Luis Espelt fell in love with the land, the grapes and winemaking, creating Espelt Viticultors in 1910. Today his son, Damian, and his granddaughter, Anne carry on his passion for winemaking. Anne has traveled the world studying with various winemakers to bring new knowledge and skills to the family’s estate. And in 2000, the Espelts built a state of the art winemaking facility towards the goal of combining old world traditions with modern winemaking techniques.
