The Wine and Cheese Place has the best selection of Vermouth in the area.  We continue to add Vermouth and special order ones that are not available.  We love the wines of Massican and when we saw that they also made Vermouth - we asked our distributor to special order them for us!

Massican Sweet Red Vermouth...$22.99
Inspired by the original Italian Vermouth made in Piemonte in the eighteenth century, our Vermouth begins as a dry white wine that we blend with proprietary maceration of aromatic, bitter herbs and spices. Ingredients include coriander, nutmeg and orange peel. Vermouth is aged in French oak barrels and just before bottling a small percentage of sugar is added to help soften the bitterness. Vermouth is classic when served chilled.
