Chardonnay Salt

morphone | Jun 5, 2008 09:33 AM

I keep seeing this wonderful chardonnay salt at Williams Sonoma, and instead of paying $20/oz, I'd like to see if I can make it myself. I believe it's made by smoking the salt with the oak from chardonnay barrels, but I'm not entirely sure. I'm imagining that such a thing would be difficult to come by, though I'm not far from Napa so I'd be willing to make a pilgrimage. Should I just call a winery and ask?

Also, how could one go about making it in other ways? I'm curious about a non-smoked chardonnay salt, which would involve chardonnay in its liquid form, therefore dissolving the salt. Does anyone have a method for making flavored salts with liquid ingredients?
