Rioja Chorizo

Oyama Sausage Co.

Regular price $7.99

Unit price per 

A rich, Spanish-style smoked sausage from Oyama- Delicioso!

This ready-to-eat Rioja Chorizo has a semi-firm consistency and cuts to reveal the bright paprika-coloured sausage. It’s lightly smoked, and flavoured with Rioja wine and garlic. The intense, long lasting flavour makes it a perfect accent for a charcuterie platter. Or, try frying it up with your eggs, throw some chunks into your homemade mac & cheese, or use traditionally in a paella.

SIZE: 150g sausage, unsliced, ready to eat


The most respected charcuterie makers in Vancouver. 

Oyama Sausage Company is a family-owned business that was founded by John and Christine van der Lieck over 30 years ago. John comes from five generations of sausage making in Germany, and spent ten years apprenticing across Europe before moving to a small town called Oyama, at the north of the Okanagan valley. There, in the 80’s, John and his wife, Christine, took over the running of his uncle’s charcuterie business (3 stores in Oyama, Vernon and Kelowna). When John and Christine relocated to Vancouver, they renamed the business after the town where it all started. 

In a 2009 New York Times article, John van der Leick was named “the most diversely talented meat-man in North America”! Today, Oyama makes over 400 products yearly at their Vancouver production facility, using many Canadian free-range meats. Oyama Sausage Co. honours its roots in traditional craftsmanship and family recipes, but is also inspired by the flavours in multicultural Vancouver. Wherever possible, Oyama partners with local farmers and producers in order to get the best quality ingredients for its products.
