When you first walk into this delightfully charming upscale tasting room, you can’t help but be dazzled by the 64 shiny and stunning stainless steel tanks (called fustis) that line the walls like proudly decorated soldiers. Each fusti contains either Ultra Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oils from all over the world or Balsamic Vinegars from the most revered producers in Modena, Italy.
You’ll then be immediately greeted by one of our extremely welcoming and knowledgeable team members eager to help navigate you thru the plethora of amazing Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Balsamic flavors.
Once you take your 1st taste, you’ll be surprisingly and flavorfully “WOWED” and simultaneously hooked! At that very moment, your eyes will light up and images of cuisine possibilities will emerge and you’ll instantly want to start to experimenting, imagining and creating more on your own.
To enhance your sensory experience, we’ll hand you a ‘Suggested Pairing Sheet’ which lists the most popular Oil and Balsamic combinations that you can try on your own. That’s when…the REAL FUN begins!
Whether you enjoy Olive Oil or Balsamic Vinegar by itself or paired, they can be used for bread dipping, salad dressings, marinades or simply drizzled over vegetables, cheeses, fruits or desserts.
We ONLY acquire our oils from small estate mills all over the world that are willing to follow our strict harvesting, transporting and crushing criteria.
And to guarantee freshness, we pull our oils, every 6 months, from both northern and southern hemispheres which allow for 2 harvests per year instead of just one.
Once produced, each oil is laboratory tested in its country of origin and then again at the world's renowned Australian Research Lab to verify its Ultra Premium quality. The proof of such is then displayed on each fusti.
All our Balsamics are made exclusively in Modena, Italy which again guarantees the Highest Quality Traditional Style Condimento.
Every Olive Oil and Balsamic is available in three different sizes. 200ml, 375ml and 750ml which range in price from $12.95 to $25.95. The only exceptions are the 6 gourmet oils which are priced individually at each fusti.
We are very proud and excited to share the endless flavors and combinations of our products with our customers. And when we do, our customers almost always have the same reaction……”Wow, this store is amazing and really FUN”.
Owner, Lisa Lubeley, is very excited to offer our sophisticated variety of premium extra virgin olive oils, gourmet oils, flavored oils and vinegars to our customers. Lisa, a southern California native and prior technology professional, is pleased to provide great tasting solutions for healthy lifestyles. We look forward to your store visit and talking wih you about our oils and vinegars including the southern and northern hemisphere olive harvests, farming/mill processes, health benefits and more.
So, come and see what all the fuss is about and have your own ‘surprisingly and flavorful ‘WOW’ experience’!!
