The venture capitalist and her husband Kostas, added a dark chocolate balsamic vinegar to their line just the market is being hit with a range of artisanal vinegars that's expected to be the next hot item like Greek yogurt was.

Be prepared to pay because the olive oil can cost as much as eight times more than brands in Greece.

“I'm a serial entrepreneur with a passion for family, living a healthy lifestyle, and, of course, all things Greek,” she said on her website although New York magazine, in a review of the new vinegars, said, “even the folks at Kosterina can admit that the best balsamic comes from Italy.”
