Artisan Vinegars

Superb in salads, magnificent in marinades, and simply resplendant when reduced into glazes, these small-batch artisan vinegars from Chaparral Gardens are crafted from organic produce grown along the central coast of California.

To craft the vinegar both fruits and herbs are placed into small vats along with an organic kosher base vinegar. Next, the “Mother” is added, and the infusion is left to undergo a fermentation that can take several months to achieve.

The bright acidity of the fruit sourced from the cool coastal microclmate results in vinegars that scintillate with flavor. Creative blending, and subtle infusions of herbs tand spices then  highlight tand compliment the fruit.

Chaparral’s Blackberry Roasted Pepper Fruit Vinegar beautifully fuses flavors of blackberry, ancho chili’s, and bell peppers. The vinegar is perfect to use as a marinade for meats or to combine with red wine and then reduce into a sweet and smoky Jus.
