I like the verjus from Navarro. It comes in wine bottles like their wine grape juices and it makes a very nice cold beverage when served with lots of ice. I've tasted the mustard, nice, but nothing special. OT, I am partial to the Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout Mustard ($8 last time I bought some) from Anderson Valley Brewing, which is located in Booneville just down the road from Philo and the Navarro Winery. Recently made a trip to stock up at both places. Just lucky they are in the neighborhood!
