Drought in Italy: For two years now, Italy has been suffering the effects of global warming which has greatly affected the Trebbiano grapes—precisely the ones used in the production of our balsamic condimentos. Production of the grapes is down which creates scarcity. Ergo, prices have had an upward spiral. Our balsamic condimentos come to us in 22 pound cubes. Depending on the size of the bottles filled, a cube holds enough to fill 13 to 50 bottles. While prices have been very stable and have not changed in years, our price from our distributor recently increased $7.00-9.00/cube. As a result, unfortunately, we have had to raise the prices of our balsamic condimentos. However, we have tried to keep the increase to a minimum. Thank you for your understanding.
During the months of August and September, we have 4 all-new Cooking Classes we think you’ll find especially timely and interesting. See our EVENTS page for details.
REMINDER: In hot weather, keep your olive oils in a cool, dark (not refrigerated) place, which will promote longer shelf life.
