White balsamic vinegar is made from the white Italian Trebbiano grape. The grape must (the juice of the grape pressing), is cooked using high pressure to prevent caramelization that is characteristic of the dark balsamic vinegars. The white vinegars are more golden in color with a milder, sweet taste. This is due to the shorter aging process. These vinegars are light and refreshing which makes them a great choice for salads, fresh fruits, or a sparkling summer spritzer.
