General, Patent, Product, Suppliers, Machinery, Uses, Company Profiles : "Vinegar is made by the oxidation of alcohol, either directly or through the medium of a ferment, or by the distillation of wood; the latter is known as pyroligneous acid.
The process by which vinegar is made is theoretically quite simple (liquid ingredients are fermented until they turn acidic, and then the resulting liquid is filtered and diluted) but the steps actually taken are many and complex.
The grapes are harvested and then cooked down to a 'must' (thick almost syrupy liquid) in copper cauldrons. It is then barreled, and here in lies the real secrets of the closely guarded family recipes. It is the type of wood, the aging and transferring of vinegar from barrel to barrel that makes the difference between balsamic vinegars.
The process is painstaking, slow and laborious, but worth every step. No shortcuts are taken, no inferior fruit picked, no spoiled wine made into vinegar: Minus 8 Vinegar is never boiled and never hurried."
