Michigan By The Bottle Radio Interview – August 2015

Versatile Verjus by Paula Bartholome, Edible Michiana

“This one-time staple of French provincial cooking is made from green grapes culled from their vines and crushed. These grapes are from the same vines that provide grapes used to make Dablon’s traditional, French-style wines. The culling allows the vine to put all its energy and nutrients into remaining grapes. Rather than throw the green grapes out or compost them, Dablon Winery used them to make a hard-to-find culinary item: verjus.”
