Olive Oil Taproom
Our Ultra Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oils change by the seasonal crush two times per year, April and November. So, you will always get the freshest we can possibly provide. “There is no substitute for individual experience”. Try as many Ultra Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oils, infused flavors of oils & aged balsamic vinegars as you can (we have 50+); they represent extraordinary examples of unique quality and value impossible to duplicate in traditional supermarket brands. Our ultra premium olive oils are single variety and purchased directly from the olive mill estates and their farmers. Our vendor is trying to keep these small mills sustainable because big brokers are putting some of them out of the work they have been doing for centuries. Stop by and see us for a "Free Tasting and Education".

Use in marinades, shrubs, dressings, glazes, desserts, with fruit, and in baking. It is sensational paired with our Persian Lime Olive Oil, Lemon Olive Oil, or any one of our Extra Virgin Olive Oils.
Cilantro & Garlic Balsamic- What a deal breaker in the kitchen. Use it on any dish especially in your instapot or tomato-based sauces
Bourbon Maple Balsamic-Wonderful on Salmon, Tuna, Roasted carrots, or butternut squash

Welcome To The Olive Oil Taproom!
The Olive Oil Taproom is an Ultra Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil & Aged Balsamic Vinegar Tasting Room. We provide a full customer service experience unknown today. We educate about the wonderful health benefits of Ultra Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Aged Balsamic Vinegars. We explain how an olive oil should smell, taste and feel. The white pepper sensation and grassiness is indicative of its polyphenols (anti-oxidants) still being in the oil.
Our products are from different countries, such as, Chile, Italy, Spain, Australia, Greece, Peru, Tunisia Africa, California, etc. Our products will change at every crush season (two times per year April & November) so you will have the freshest olive oils in the world. We have no carryover oils. Once an oil is depleted, it won’t be back again until the next crush season.
We are not a huge Franchise. All of our stores are independently owned, therefore, we can make decisions with our customer’s input and attempt to carry their favorites and new choices. No commission is paid, which allows us to donate to Local Charities and sustainable food projects to help our neighbors & friends.
Why are we different?
Our oils have more than the standard levels of polyphenol and oleic acids. Higher levels of each of these Anti-Oxidants and Anti-Inflammatories has been proven to help in lowering the incidence of certain breast cancers, coronary diseases, such as high cholesterol, and recently found to contain oleocanthol.
In those studies, oleocanthol seemed to increase production of proteins and enzymes necessary to remove amyloid beta from the brain with regard to Alzheimer’s disease. http://pubs.acs.org/journal/acncdm. The health benefits of a true Extra Virgin Olive Oil are absolutely amazing.
We have over 54+ Varieties of Ultra Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oils, Infused Flavors of Olive Oils and Barrel Aged (Modena, Italy PGI, 12 year) Balsamic Vinegar.
You can sample and pair an Olive Oil with an Aged Balsamic Vinegar to your taste (we provide bread for dipping and savoring the flavors. We have also thought of our Gluten Intolerant friends and also provide gluten free bread. No need to bring your own guys!!.
We bottle your choices for you on the spot from our Stainless Steel Fustis tanks(hand crafted stainless steel tanks with no inside welds) crafted by Sansone from Italy. Therefore, no light or heat will penetrate your Ultra Premium Olive Oils and they will retain their health qualities as long as possible.
Where can you actually taste & sample for FREE so many wonderful flavors (Tuscan, Basil, Garlic, Black Cherry, Honey Ginger, Cranberry Pear, etc. it is endless) before you purchase them? Here!!!!
We welcome you, your family and friends to try out our oils, enjoy the tastings, education, have a wonderful day together, and to go home eating wiser & healthier!!!
