You Must Read This To Find Out

Just like olive oil, Italians have been relishing balsamic vinegar for centuries, however, the American palate has been able to savor this only in the past two decades. Today balsamic vinegar is one of the most popular condiments available in American grocery stores and is used in various sauces, marinades, salad dressings, dips, desserts, etc.


Balsamic vinegar, though popularly referred to as wine vinegar is not made from wine, but is prepared from grape pressings (must), whose fermentation process has been hindered. The best balsamic vinegar is prepared in the hills of Modena, Italy, where unique and flavorful balsamic vinegar is formed. This vinegar is known to be a cut above the other types of vinegar. Unlike the sharp taste of vinegar, balsamic vinegar has a rich, sweet flavor. Our balsamic vinegar is also made in Modena, Italy aged in the traditional style from high-quality grape must. You need to taste it to believe it!
