OLIVE OILS FROM FROM AROUND THE WORLD
The flavors are fused at the time of the first pressing to provide a crisp clean flavor that blends with the high quality of the olive oil. Enjoy mixing the many different flavors of our rich aged Balsamic Vinegars from Modena, Italy.
ITALIAN BALSAMIC VINEGAR
LA QUINTA, CALIFORNIA
Our Balsamic Vinegars are all from Modena, Italy the home of the finest balsamic in the world. Each flavored vinegar is 18 years old and our Traditional Balsamic is 25 years old. You can see the richness before you even taste it as the thick, sweet syrup slowly makes its way out of the spout. These make wonderful pairings with our extra virgin olive oils for vinaigrettes, marinades or just dipping fun!
