We have tried and researched many balsamic vinegar options over the years. We have found this to be one of the most challenging items to find from a pure and clean standpoint.
Not only does this Balsamic Vinegar start with clean and organic grapes, but the end product is pure. Many of the balsamic vinegar products on the market contain color additives, thickeners or sugars and it's an industry rife with fraud. After talking with industry experts on some of the issues, we have chosen this as an item we will only consume if we know exactly where it is coming from!
We found Chacewater by chance during a trip to Kelseyville CA. It was incredible to find their beautiful wine and olive oil tasting room alongside their olive groves, production facility and offices. We did a tasting, walked straight into the office and left with a couple of cases of olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
Chance discoveries like these are one of our favorite parts of this business and often provide us products and lasting relationships that no amount of online research would have found us! Chacewater is a lovely family operation and we encourage you to check out their tasting room if you are ever in the area.
