Lo-Fi Aperitifs are a line of vermouths and amaro crafted with California wines and natural herbs & botanicals. It is a collaborative venture between Ernest & Julio Gallo Winery and Steven Grasse of Quaker City Mercantile - the creator of legendary spirits like Hendrick's Gin and Art in the Age. Their goal was to create a liquid that can be enjoyed on its own, or used generously in a cocktail — not just whispered over a martini.

Lo-Fi provides both home bartenders and mixologists with the perfect tool for creating delicious cocktails, whether they’re using classic 1:1 proportions or mixing up new creations. The California wines are infused with a unique blend of botanicals that are listed right on the label. Everything that’s in it, is on it! 

Dry Vermouth - PROOF: 33/16.5%
A perfectly balanced dry vermouth is the key to a great cocktail. This one is crafted with a combination of cherry, fennel, elderflower, anise, and chamomile in a base of premium California white wine and fortified with grape neutral spirits.

Sweet anise and coriander aromas with citrus fruit and hints of elderflower. Complex spicy flavors on the palate are balanced with the fresh fruit flavors from the Muscat Canelli. This dry aperitif has a balanced mouthfeel and creamy texture. Specifically formulated with a higher pH level than other vermouths to allow for a well-balanced flavor profile. This wine pairs beautifully with dry cider, gin, and rye whiskey.
