Place the octopus in a large pot and fill in with water making sure the octopus is fully covered.
Add in the wine and vinegar, bring to the boil and lower to a simmer after a few minutes.
How long it will take depends on your octopus, how much it was processing before ending up in the pot. After 25-30 minutes check to see how soft it is.
When done, strain the pot’s contents, let the octopus come to room temperature and keep the herbs.
Chop in small, bite sized pieces and dress with a bit of olive oil and vinegar, a bit of salt if needed.
