Bought a hand crafted one in Spain that is SO good I keep it for an appertivo on ice but I'm about out. Use others to deglaze, for mussels; with mushrooms; with shrimp; with roasted meats ....almost anything that needs white wine. It is a "must have" in my pantry.
I also use a lot of Marsala, and sweet vermouth in cooking.

In fact, Veal Marsala with a side of tortellini in a white sauce at an L.A. resto called Little Joe's was one of the game changing meals of my childhood. I was 9. Before that day, I hated gravy and sauce was what went on Spaghetti. After that day, I wanted wine sauces on all my meat and started reading my mom's cookbooks at home to try to understand how they were made. And here I am.
