All olive oil starts with fruit on a tree. What happens after the fruit and the tree part company makes all the difference to the oil produced. Differences in fruit, harvest times, region and methods of extraction result in different flavor profiles.
Did you know that over ninety-five percent of the production takes place in the very broad geographic region known as the Mediterranean basin, a large area that extends from Syria in the east to Spain and Morocco in the west?
Spain is by far the world’s largest producer of olives and olive oil. Each producing country has different producing regions, varieties, and preferences for harvest time and style. No two seasons in any area are identical. Many varieties alternate in productivity; a year of high productivity is followed by a year of rest.
No matter the variations in production, at The Shoreline Vine we offer only the finest olive oils available. And we do so in a setting that allows you to sample the subtle variety of flavors.
A visit with us is a treat for your senses. Come see how you can make significant improvements to your cooking by using the best olive oil available.
Balsamic vinegar is a thick, sweet-smelling vinegar that is made from pure and unfermented grape juice, which is known as must. Several varieties of grapes can be used to create balsamic vinegar, but the Trebbiano grape, which is native to Modena, Italy, is the most common. Another variety that is commonly used is Lambrusco. Ancellotta and Sauvignon are sometimes used as well. This type of vinegar is often used in cooking, as a salad dressing or as a topping for vegetables.
Our vinegars are aged to perfection and shipped to our store at the height of their flavor.
At The Shoreline Vine we offer several types of vinegar, each with its own flavor profile. Our tasting room allows you to sample the different types of vinegars we offer.
You’ll be delighted with how our vinegars will improve the dishes you prepare for family and friends.
