Welcome to OMG Specialty Foods – formerly of Bountiful Basket Carmel. We specialize in hand-crafted, Balsamic and rice-based vinegars and gift baskets for all occasions. Our OMG Vinegars have become so popular that we have since closed our storefront to concentrate on direct sales via phone and internet orders. You can also find us in downtown Carmel at the new Farmer’s Market on Thursdays, at the Sunset Center from 10am to 2pm, year-round. We have also launched a new wholesale and food service division, offering our products to restaurants and specialty food stores.
We use high quality Balsamic vinegar that comes straight from Modena, Italy, and is aged up to 18 years in the traditional method, using wooden casks that go back generations. We then blend them with all natural fruit compounds, herbs and spices, all produced and grown in California. We also offer lighter, hand-crafted rice vinegar based vinegars and California Extra Virgin Olive Oils.
The owner, Sharon Cuneo, have been involved in the gourmet food industry for over 20 years, having owned 4 restaurants as well as owning gourmet food and wine shop in downtown Carmel, the Bountiful Basket for the last 12 years. Sharon has special training in the history, development and mixology of vinegar products. She’s also a graduate and certificate holder from the Olive Center at the Robert Mondavi Institute at U.C. Davis. Sharon has given numerous lectures and product demonstrations for the Carmel Food Tours, the Fancy Food Show in San Francisco, and countless non-profit organizations, private parties, corporate and special events. She also co-hosted the International Olive Oil Tasting Tent with the California Olive Oil Council at the former Carmel TomatoFest, which was sponsored by Sunset Magazine and held at Quail Lodge in Carmel Valley, California. The Bountiful Basket Store was also featured in the New York Times as one of the top ten things to do and see in Carmel-by-the-Sea.
We invite you to experience our products. Please visit us at the Farmer’s Market in downtown Carmel on Thursdays from 10am to 2pm to taste our creations or contact Sharon Cuneo directly for samples or custom gifts. Sharon is also available for private tastings and special events.
