A Winning Selection of

Vinegars

Our wine vinegars begin life from specially selected premium California wines. To convert the wines into vinegar, we use a slow & delicate fermentation process known as the "Orléans method". This method, made famous by the French, dates back to the middle ages and was patented in the 16th century.

Like great wine, great vinegar comes with age. Our wine vinegars are carefully made over a period of 12 to 24 months and contain no preservatives, and are not pasteurized in order to prevent degradation of the taste. Most mass-produced brands on the market are made in huge aluminum tanks with a mere 24 hour aging process.

Because of the care required during the delicate Orléans method, it produces the absolute highest quality and best tasting vinegar available. We are one of the few who offer such high quality vinegars using this old world method.
