The Alexander family of Lodi, California has been growing and producing grapes in
many different fashions for four generations. Kimberly Wine Vinegars was started
in the mid 1970's in the Bay Area and was dependent on tailored wines from the
In 2002, The Alexander family expanded their operation by purchasing the well
developed Kimberley Wine Vinegars. We have since radically increased available
production while remaining committed to the original Method D'Orleans of vinegar
Kimberley Wine Vinegar is made with the traditional French method D'Orleans, using
small, ventilated oak barrels partially filed with either organically or
conventionally produced wine. We slowly introduce our special vinegar culture
which over many months converts the wine to full-figured vinegar. We do not add
preservatives to our vinegar, nor are they pasteurized. Pasteurization is a common
practice that increases shelf life but degrades subtle flavor characteristics.
Rich wonderful hints of robust wine mixed with acidity complement each batch of
our handcrafted vinegar. Kimberley Wine Vinegar is among only a few vinegar
cellars in the world still producing with these traditional processes and is the
only organic producer using the method D'Orleans.
Kimberley has five wonderful flavors: Kimberley Cabernet Sauvignon Vinegar,
Kimberley Chardonnay Vinegar, Kimberley Sherry Vinegar, and Kimberley Champagne
Vinegar, Kimberley Balsamic Vinegar. Each has its own individual flavor and has
the Kimberley guarantee of freshness.
