  • Why does "Fused" Matter

    Our premium 100% extra virgin olive oils are “fused” meaning the flavors (Basil, Garlic, Lemon) are crushed together with the ripe olives immediately after harvesting, resulting in deeper, truer and more intense flavors and aromas. Our oils are heart healthy and full of anti-oxidants and polyphenols.

  • Why our Balsamic Vinegars Taste Great

    Our premium barrel aged balsamic vinegars are sourced from Modena, Italy where up to seven different varieties of grapes are crushed, mixed with grape must, concentrated wine vinegar and fresh wine vinegar, aged in oak barrels, and fermented until the taste is flawless and approved by the master vinegar maker.
