A must-have in any seasoned foodie’s kitchen, Marqués de Valdueza’s Extra Virgin Olive Oil & Red Wine Vinegar Gift Set makes a refined addition to a well-stocked pantry.
Sourced from the prestigious Madrilenian Álvarez de Toledo family, traditional fine olive oil and wine-making producers for generations. The Valduezas are serious farmers, a state of mind which is reflected in the terroir of their hard, rugged, Extremaduran estate. They are simply determined to do things well, and this includes employing the best Spanish agronomist to help them in their choice of olive varieties and where on the farm to plant them.
The Extra Virgin Olive Oil is made from four olive varieties – Arbequina, Picual, Hojiblanca and Morisca. It is elegant, fresh, herbaceous and heady, with creeping spice and a black-pepper and orange flesh finish. The Red Wine Vinegar is clean and sweet on the palate, with finishing notes of vanilla, fennel, liquorice and almonds. Its slight acidity makes it the perfect accompaniment to both hot and cold dishes.
