Every home bar needs to be stocked with the essentials to please every palate, party and mood. And when it comes time for a Spritz, be stocked with something a little more elevated and unique than Aperol.
Our Spritz Kit features the Volume Primo Vermouth, as well as our ‘gaux-to Prosecco from Sorelle Bronca. Volume Primo’s Mediterranean-style Vermouth is macerated with bittering elements such as wormwood, gentian, sage, chamomile, and vanilla. It is flavor-packed and the perfect pick for mixing with bubbly Prosecco. Oh yeah, this is also the Vermouth used in the Bar Archivo Negroni, which is rumored to be the best Negroni in the world.
Box Includes: 1 bottle of NV Volume Primo Vermouth & 1 bottle of NV Sorelle Extra Dry Prosecco
Make sure to head to our blog for our tried & true Spritz recipe.

“Everyone had fun and learned something. Personally, it was my first wine tasting. The notes were helpful and easy to follow, so much so that I was able to make good guesses (I missed the grape, got the countries).”
“Arden joined us for a virtual blind taste testing happy hour and truly brought the experience to life! She thoughtfully took us through the steps to see, smell, taste, and even identify each wine which transformed each sip.”
