Made by one of Spain’s most prestigious noble families on land that’s been planted with olive trees for more than 2000 years, this is a gift set with incredible pedigree.
Marqués de Valdueza Extra Virgin Olive Oil is mild and smooth, with round fruity and almond flavors and just a hint of pepper on the long finish. Complex elegance makes this green-gold elixir an ideal finishing oil. Keep it out on the table to drizzle over crusty bread, steamed fish, citrus fruit salad or fresh vegetables with a pinch of sea salt.
Made using the traditional Orleans method and a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah wines, Marqués de Valdueza Red Wine Vinegar shines with brilliant honey color. Its nuanced aromas of toasted wood and vanilla morph into clean, slightly sweet citrus flavors on the tongue. Intense nine percent acidity makes this vinegar an excellent finishing touch. Just a few drops will brighten everything from hearty grains to grilled fruits and vegetables to rich sauces for meat.
About the Producer:

Every bottle carrying his noble title is infused with tradition so that with each taste of Marqués de Valdueza extra virgin olive oil and vinegar you are participating in a historical legacy... and wow, is it delicious.
