Pojer e Sandri’s single-fruit vinegars—made solely with fruit juice (not wine vinegar flavored with fruit)—are the ultimate table-top condiment.
This stunning Italian fruit vinegar—made by Pojer e Sandri, one of the most well-known wineries in the Trento region of Northern Italy—starts with the best locally-grown quince from their own estate and the neighboring farmers’ orchards. The fruit is gently pressed and inoculated with yeast to ferment. When the fermented fruit juice achieves the right sugar content, it is transferred to oak barrels with some “mother” vinegar—a process known as the trucciolo lento method—and aged for 18 to 24 months.
The result? A beautifully-balanced vinegar that captures the true essence of quince fruit in a sharp, yet not-too-sour bit of vinegar. Pojer e Sandri’s exceptional craftsmanship, delectable taste and attractive hand-drawn label makes this vinegar an elegant gift for everyone, from the novice cook to the foodie who has almost everything.
How to use
Pojer e Sandri Quince Fruit Vinegar’s delicate aroma makes it perfect for seafood and delicate fish—try it drizzled over poached halibut, seared scallops or in a mignonette sauce for oysters.
This vibrant vinegar also pairs well with fresh fruit and produce. We love it with tropical and stone fruits—dazzle your guests with grilled peaches served over a simple salad of tender greens dressed in Quince Fruit Vinegar and extra virgin olive oil or over slices of papaya or mango.
Perched on the steep eastern side of the canyon-like valley of the Adige River, Pojer & Sandri is one of the most remarkable wineries in the Trento region of Italy.The dynamic team of Fiorentino Pojer and Marco Sandri have owned the estate since 1975, when Fiorentino, as the landowner, teamed up with Marco, who had just graduated from enological school. They set out to protect and revive the many local grapes of the area and produce wines which were almost forgotten.
Their respect of the environment and traditions along with their outgoing personalities and hospitality soon set them on a class of their own. Today, they are widely respected as one of the most unique and trend-setting wineries in Italy. Pojer & Sandri has now expanded their expertise to include the production of high quality fruit vinegars.
