Vinegar. Like none you've tasted before.

Right here, in Central Virginia, you can find vinegar like you've never tasted before.  Virginia Vinegar Works is producing vinegars in the ancient orleans- style from grapes grown right here.  We challenge you to try their white or red wine vinegars next to the store-bought varieties that you may have lurking in your pantry.

Orleans-style vinegars enjoy a place on Slow Food USA's Ark of Taste.

You can source these vinegars directly form Virginia Vinegar Works or The Local Food Hub.

OR come taste them at SFAP's upcoming potluck at Bellair Farm.
