Sweet vermouth made from 'Uhudler,' a wine from an area between Burgenland and Steiermark in Austria that uses hybrid grapes as is not only looked down upon but sometimes banned. Attitudes towards hybrids are changing, thankfully, as they provide a far better path towards a more ecological future.
Lisa Bauer is making Uhudler wine from her grandmother's vines and making an often disrespected, tart wine into a beautiful vermouth. In fact, this might be the best vermouth you've ever had! It helps that the base wine used is far better than most, and it's not sappy or cloying. There is lots of wild strawberry, cherry, and floral notes but there's an amazing through line of bitter grapefruit peel that ties it all together. Drink it on its own or with an ice cube or splash of club soda.
