Dear Wine Lover,
Did you know that real balsamic vinegar is not wine vinegar!...it is actually vinegar made from the juice of the Trebbiano grape...and most institutional balsamic vinegar is doctored up whatever...not our Melina's...after tasting literally 100 different vinegars (Fancy Food shows etc)...we cannot knock off our favorite.
Olive oil is the core of the Mediterranean diet...and the level of quality can vary so greatly that the consumer really is In the dark. Here is an incredible California version made from the mission olive (mild but flavorful). We use this daily in our home.
Get one but I suggest both...and try my crostini recipe!
