Wildwood Balsamics was founded in the spring of 2012 with our first harvest of elderflowers from our hedgerows in early summer.
Fuschia blossom followed in August, then wild heather blossom.
As autumn unfolded, wild blackberries and elderberries came to fruition harvested.
The first vinegars we produced matured until the following season when we were able to use the 2013 harvest to begin our balsamic process.
We then launched Wildwood Balsamics at the ‘ Gifted’ Christmas fair in Dublin.
Over the last ten years Wildwood Balsamic vinegars and dressings have won five Gold, seven Silver and four Bronze medals with Blas na hEireann.
The ‘Great Taste’ awards have awarded three gold stars to our Elderberry and Star Anise.
'Great Taste' then went on to achieve a top fifty place that year out of the twelve thousand entries received.
Wildwood Balsamics were then nominated for a Golden Fork award.
We were also given the Guild of Irish
Food Writers award in 2018 .
