Q: Are there any preservatives in your products?
A: We do NOT add preservatives! Balsamic vinegar has all natural preservative properties (similar to pickles) that allow the product to stay fresh and flavorful for up to 5 years when stored properly. Our Olive Oils will last 2 years unopened, and 1 year after opening.

Q: How should I store Branch & Vine products?
A: Although our oils and vinegar CAN be stored in the fridge, they are shelf stable. We recommend a cool, dry, dark place away from your stove or kitchen window, and in an airtight container (like our dark glass bottles) Countertop is fine!

Q: Is there sugar added to your 25 Star Balsamic?
A: NO! The sweetness of our balsamic is due to the natural sugars present in fruit. We do not add anything else to the vinegar besides fruit or vegetable infusions.

Q: What type of barrels is the 25 Star Balsamic aged in?
A: Slovenian Oak.

Q: What makes your Balsamic so thick?
A: Our special quality of grape must give the finished goods a thicker consistency. This balsamic is made exclusively for us and to our specification. It contains a minimum of 80% high quality must and wine vinegar that is aged a minimum of 18 years. The resultant product is naturally thick and sweet.

Q: How is the White Balsamic made and how does it differ from the dark?
A: The product is produced in the same manner with the same ingredients as the dark balsamic. The difference is that for the white, they choose the lightest batch of grape must that they have and then they filter the resultant product which lightens it further.
