It’s right there in our name: The Olive Branch…we love olive oil! But did you know that we also feature incredible balsamic and wine vinegars?

For us, it’s such a natural pairing to cook with and sell vinegar alongside extra virgin olive oil. If you haven’t explored our vinegars, here’s what you need to know:

Balsamic Vinegar Encourages Hydration

We all know that we need to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated and healthy, but it can be a struggle to get excited about drinking water! 

One of our customers’ favorite ways to enjoy our balsamic vinegars is by splashing a tablespoon of flavored balsamic vinegar twice a day!

Health Benefits Of Wine Vinegars

While balsamic vinegars are some of our most popular pairings, we also provide a wide variety of wine vinegars. Many of these vinegars have unexpected health benefits along with adding delicious flavor to everyday dishes!

Red Wine Vinegars

This type of vinegar contains trace amounts of iron, magnesium, potassium, and vitamin C. It can also include probiotics that can aid digestion and help reduce lower blood sugar spikes.

Red wine vinegar, like our Moscatel or Vinoso-Barbaresco, is ideal for dressing greens, potatoes, and pasta salads. Combine them with Roasted Almond Oil for a delicious dressing you can use on a variety of dishes.

Champagne Vinegar

This type of vinegar is light and refreshing, so pairing it with chicken, summer pasta, and salads is the best way to enjoy it. Similar to other vinegars, champagne vinegar also contains strains of probiotics that can promote good gut health.

The types of fruit that are used to create champagne vinegar also contain antioxidants that can fight against cell damage, improving the immune system.

Pino Grigio White Wine Vinegar

Similar to champagne vinegar, this vinegar is light, crisp, and fruity with hints of floral. It’s ideal to drizzle over fresh salads and enjoy paired with chicken dishes.

White wine vinegar can help reduce blood pressure and aid in calcium absorption as well as provide short-term appetite control.
