Herring that has been soaked in a salt and vinegar solution for a week, then soaked in a vinegar, sugar, spices and wine mixture for a couple of days.

I like most varieties.

These are in wine sauce. The wine used is generally a inexpensive brand. Our favorite used to be Thunderbird. Lately, it has been Silver Satin.
