  The meat roll was a success for the Italian pot luck.Thank you.
  I was looking at a gift of the above and have not opened the 
  bottle as I am unfamiliar with the taste.
  What uses would you suggest?

Hi Guy,

There's a great salad recipe using this vinegar at this website: Piquant Salad

Chardonnay blood orange wine vinegar is "a carefully blended combination of Chardonnay grape juice, oranges and spices that creates a sweet mellow flavor for fruity marinades, sauces and fat-free dressings. For an exciting twist add to sautéed vegetables, chicken and fresh fish. Pour over orange sorbet for a spectacular effect. Use whenever your recipes call for white wine vinegar."
