What is Vermentino?

What Is Vermentino

Vermentino is native to the Ligurian area of Italy and the Mediterranean islands of Sardinia and Corsica. Like Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, and Riesling, Vermentino has a light to medium body with comparable weight and profile. There’s something for everyone, from light and airy to deep and textured.

Vermentino is a versatile wine that pairs well with a wide variety of fresh seafood, salads, and light Asian-inspired foods popular throughout Australia’s long summer. The sweetness and spice from the squid offset the refreshing acidity of the Australian Vermentino in Luke Nguyen’s chilli salted squid recipe.
