Fresh, natural ingredients. A home cooked meal. Family gathering together to taste perfection. Three basic fundamentals to enjoying life, making memories, and living healthy.
Having experienced first hand my wife’s family’s olive oil business, I realized recently that too few retail stores locally sell such quality oils and vinegars. It was shocking to see how little fresh extra virgin olive was actually on the market. Recognizing the lack of fresh olive oil in the US, we set out to create a business where the local community has access to the world’s greatest olive oils and balsamic vinegars, and can taste and see the difference right here in Ohio.
Our estate groves in Southern Spain produce tons of olive which are pressed into freshly made extra virgin olive oil. For over 10 years, the family has sold to some of the nation’s finest restaurants and retail outlets while garnering high praise from the national food media. The family has since created a worldwide distribution network based on their Spanish lands. This allows us to move away from third-party distributers, control costs and focus the store’s future on our own olives. We control the ingredients, the highest measure of success, within all of our products.
Olivina Taproom is a store with the goal of educating the public about the culinary and health benefits of fresh ultra premium extra virgin olive oil and balsamic condimento vinegars. Our vision of selling these products is based on quality, objective testing and winning international awards, instead of romantic stories of olive groves and imagery of the Mediterranean. Passion for fresh olive oil and high quality vinegars shines in all that we do, whether it be educational classes, partnering with local restaurants or chef driven cooking demonstrations. We sell over 60 varieties of oils and vinegars of our own recipes, all ready to taste and enjoy.
We are also very focused on building community. We will do this by offering extensive and fun original classes with our Executive Chef, Michael Turner. We also bring in local guests for cooking/baking demonstrations with our product, and sell our oils to local restaurants and markets.
We strive to share this passion as we promote a food culture driven by healthy eating, education and interaction our customer base.
