Help me find a substitute for Noilly-Prat

I always used to keep a bottle of Noilly-Prat dry vermouth on hand for cooking and an occasional martini. They recently changed the formula, and I now find it much too sweet. Can anyone recommend an alternative in the same price range?

  1. I'd heard the NP was better than Martini & Rossi. Will be interested to hear feedback for MY replacement purposes.

    1. I like Cinzano but it is a very subjective thing. Each Vermouth has its own formula

      1. I am certainly OK with Cinzano, but "Martini" brand (an Italian dry Vermouth) or a Vya Vermouth might prove to be good choices.

        1. If you can find Vya vermouth (from the Quady winery in California) you may be very pleasantly surprised. Maybe not for cooking, but it's incredible in a martini, and is very nice as an apertif.

          1. Use half white wine and half sherry.
