Based in Monticello

On a 40-acre farm nestled in Monticello, New Mexico, Jane and Steve Darland have spent the past several years crafting traditional balsamic vinegar using one ingredient: certified organic Italian grapes grown on their high desert property.

For the 21-year aging process, they use a series of world-class Italian balsamico casks, with each barrel made from one of seven woods: ash, acacia, cherry, chestnut, juniper, mulberry, and oak. This artisanal treasure has been widely recognized for its unique viscosity and the depth and nuances of its flavors.
