Balsamic vinegar is a special category of vinegar. According to the Greek law, it is produced either from wine which has been converted into vinegar and to which has been added concentrated grape must or from the extraction of dried grapes. We have chosen the second method in the Zafiropoulos Vinegars, because it offers us a natural sweetness and a more stable color. The name balsamic, as it has been in most European languages, suggests that perhaps it was initially used as a medicine, and it seems that in some form it was also known to the ancient Greeks and the Romans.
