In the 1860s, cowherd Giuseppe Pedroni used his lottery winnings to buy several farms and renovate an old benedictine monastery into a roadside tavern, where he began producing balsamic vinegar using his empty Marsala and beer barrels.
Six generations later, Giuseppe III carries on his namesake and family's legacy, hosting visitors to the tavern and making balsamic according to traditional methods. Trebbiano di Spagna and Ruggine grape varieties are pressed, cooked, fermented, and then aged in a series of barrels made of different types of wood, a process referred to as a 'battery.' This resulting vinegar is slightly syrupy, well-balanced and sweet with a distinctive earthy richness. Try it drizzled over Bea pasta, tossed into a risotto, or served simply on pieces of Parmigiano Reggiano.
Montevertine Agretto VInegar is made using the Sangiovese, Colorino and Canaiolo grapes from Montevertine's fabled Tuscan Vineyard. This very limited run of Vinegar is best enjoyed drizzled over a bit of Mozzarella di Bufala or Cravero Parmigiano.

An 8-year-old Balsamic made from the private vineyard of the Cattani family in the hills of Modena. Aged in Oak as per the traditional balsamic process and then finished in Olivewood, which adds a distinctive earthy flavor and a light tartness to the finish. Heaven when drizzled over a little Gorgonzola Dolce or even a bit of vanilla ice cream.
While this vinegar is barrel-aged over the course of one year in a process that mirrors the aging process of Balsamic vinegar, this vinegar is made from organic apples. Italy's northern regions are well known as a prominent and traditional apple-growing region within Europe, so its only natural that apples eventually found their way into one of Italy's most renowned culinary products. The resulting vinegar is sweet but not cloying with a distinct baked apple aroma.
The Acetaia Cattani estate has vinegar-making history dating back to the early 19th century, and now harvest grapes grown in their own organic vineyard. Sweet Trebbiano grape must is gently reduced over low heat to preserve the light golden color and barrel-aged for nearly 6 months. The result is a floral perfume with balanced acidity and notes of young peach. The right choice to replace your basic white vinegar in sauces and dressings, or over grilled fish.
A stunning and velvety oil, Fruité Noir is one of the only in our collection not labeled “Extra Virgin,” owing to its unique fermentation process. The oil is a blend of native Provençal olives, grown and milled on the Castelas estate. Olives are hand-harvested only once fully ripe; they’re then stored airtight for 3 days to ferment. The result is a deep, rich, silky oil with notes of cocoa and cured black olive tapenade. Serve over garlic confit for a savory spread or pasta sauce.
