Columbus Craft Meats makes its finocchiona with whole cuts of pork never treated with antibiotics, fresh garilc, sherry wine and wild fennel seeds that add a mellow aroma and taste. Slow aged for up to 90 days depending on size. This recipe with a delicate flavor won the Good Food Award in 2013 for Best Charcuterie.

The main variety used is called the Nevadillo Blanco, an olive native to the region that has a pleasing fruity affect with a spicy, tangy finish -- an attribute preferred by Spainards.

Made in the Southeast region of Spain, Arteoliva uses only the simplest and freshest ingredients to create this extraordinary product: fresh tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, sherry vinegar and a touch of salt. Read to be drunk, enjoy this traditional Spanish beverage while soaking in the sun!
