Bavarian Meats Sous Sol Wine Salami: A New Product Inspired by our German Grandpa

Bavarian Meats Sous Sol Wine Salami

Here at Bavarian Meats we are proud to introduce our new Sous Sol Wine Salami. Rooted in the traditional sausage-making techniques and recipes mastered by our beloved German-born grandfather, Max Hofstatter, our new product is a bold tweak on tradition.

Rich with locally made Sous Sol red wine and whole peppercorns, our new salami features lean beef and pork and is made without MSG, fillers or other unnecessary additives. Gluten and dairy free our wine salami is a handcrafted variation on our classic Cervelat and it pairs beautifully in a wide array of dishes, sandwiches and in charcuterie platters featuring other artisan sausages and handcrafted cheeses.

Under development since 2014, wine salami was created by our Production Manager, Jamie Simmons and won the Grand Champion ribbon at the Northwest Meat Processors competition in Pendleton, Oregon that year. Simmons is pleased that we’ve updated a classic recipe yet stayed true to our artisan sausage-making tradition. He said, “Instead of completely reinventing the wheel to create a new recipe we looked at our sausage-making legacy and tweaked what has worked so well for decades. Our Cervelat was a great starting point for experimentation…by ramping up the flavor profile to meet the palates of today’s savvy Seattleites we built a whole new product.  People just love it.”

Sous Sol Wine Salami is available at our full service German deli in the Pike Place Market and at Delicatus, a café and bar specializing in premium deli sandwiches, salad, specialty meats, artisan cheeses and more. The salami needs no refrigeration and is sold in four to five pound sticks, suitable for slicing and cubing.

Derek Shankland, Director of Operations at Delicatus loves the salami and says, “Delicatus and Sous Sol are excited to partner with the local icon Bavarian Meats for our Sous Sol Wine Salami.  The salami is styled closer to a classic Tuscan salami with red wine and black pepper which fits our Italian grinder perfectly. The Olivitto is layered with the Sous Sol Salami, Bavarian Meats Sweet Heart Ham, Domestic Coppa and aged Provolone.  Finished with shredded lettuce, fresh tomato, shaved red onions, Extra Virgin Olive Oil and dried Oregano this simple classic just got better just in time for summer.  The Sous Sol Wine salami will also be for retail at Delicatus.”

Note: For vendors who are interested, our Sous Sol Wine Salami is available at our wholesale plant on Western Avenue.
