TUCAN GOURMET VINEGARS Greetings, friend. Our site is currently new & under construction. Please check back regularly for updates. This site is home to Tucan Vinegars, Fair Trade News, and related projects. Tucan Gourmet Vinegars is a cottage food operation based in Oakland. It was founded by Francisco Jimenez, who brought the art of vinegar-making with him to California many years ago from his homeland of Costa Rica. We accept & encourage donations! Help Francisco develop this green local business by contributing now, in any amount you can afford!
