This weekend, I took a stroll around Hampden, 'down da Avenue Hon,' as they say in Baltimore. I ran into Wine guru pal, Sharon Charny and her beau, Chef Heinz Woschitz, behind the sample bar at The Wine Source. What were they serving samples off? No, not wine, but olive oils and heavenly balsamic vinegars.
Former Baltimore hotelier and Food & Beverage Executive, Chef Heinz has recently launched a unique wholesale company in Baltimore, Maryland called Tasting Bars, LLC. The company is distributing a line of certified California Extra Virgin Olive Oils & Vinegars available in bulk or already bottled. The ‘tasting bar’ concept is about allowing the consumer to taste his products before buying with the goal of bringing an educational tasting experience to consumers and chefs through select fine wine shops, gourmet markets and restaurants.
Tasting Bars, LLC tells CITYPEEK that they are the only distributor of exclusively California certified, premium Extra Virgin Olive Oils & Vinegars in the Mid-Atlantic. The heart of the company is about: ‘From our farms to your kitchen. FRESH. HANDCRAFTED. CALIFORNIA. EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL,’ states Chef Heinz. Tasting Bars, LLC with its own brand of “Drizzle™” along with other hand selected, artisan produced labels is looking to elevate the culinary experience by offering a selection of certified Extra Virgin Olive Oils and Specialty Vinegars from California.
Chef Heinz is currently sourcing over 20+ ultra-premium, certified, artisan produced, Extra Virgin Olive Oils & Vinegars working directly with the new wave of olive farmers in California. His philosophy is following today’s movement of ‘Farm-to-Table’ and buying domestic, by
meeting the olive growers of the oils he is selling. To view or purchase products from his portfolio visit: www.drizzleoliveoil.com or www.Facebook.com/tastingsbars .To learn more about setting up a tasting bar in your shop or restaurant contact mailto:email@example.com or 443-798-0923.
