Bill and Rosalie McDonough opened Crate Expectations in a railcar, in Calistoga, in the Napa Valley, California. They provided packing and shipping for tourists to ship their wine home, and sold souvenirs to send along, too. On one bright, but agonizingly slow, day a woman walked in, held up tiny sampling spoons holding a mere few drops of dark brown liquid and said, “Taste this.”
They did. They turned to each other. Their eyes widened. They both simultaneously exclaimed, “We’re going to sell this! What is it?” Just like that.
Joy! Excitement! Epiphany!
Caramelized Balsamic Vinegar!
