The idea for A Taste of Olives and Grapes is not only our name, it’s what we believe. Living in those moments where you appreciate where you are, what you see and hear, who you’re with, the smells and tastes of what you are eating and drinking. It’s that appreciation that makes you raise a glass and smile. The company was born out of the love of adventure and exploring other parts of the world while we traveled doing work for our sister company QUAL-TECH, INC. We were always looking for the local fare of the area we were at whether, it was foods, great spices and sauces or those wonderful kitchen accessories to take home and share with our families. When we decided to open up a specialty food store we used our expertise from our other business to search out suppliers that had our same vision and could provide quality products and services that were unique and from around the world.
Because of this effort we now offer the highest quality and freshest single and multi-varietal Extra Virgin Olive Oils available from around the world both Northern and Southern hemispheres. Our supplier has a strict vendor qualification program set in place and only those who meet and surpass the standards set forth by the International Olive Oil Council are approved. Every lot number of oil has been tested and as part of the documentation trail has a certification of analysis from an approved laboratory.
Our infused olive oils are made with 100% pure, refined olive oil (no pomace or lampante oils or canola). This particular oil is chosen for these particular infusions because the strong flavor of an Extra Virgin Olive Oil fights with the subtle flavorings of the fresh herbs. These oils are produced over a 6 – 8 weeks period during which time the artisan infusion takes place under strict supervision and continued testing. The resultant product showcases the aroma and taste of the herbs and spices infused into the oil. Our fused olive oils are done by combining our flavored and infused olive oils. Our supplier has created an array of unique and creative taste treats. These contain both Extra Virgin and Pure Olive Oils.
Our 25 star Balsamic Vinegar is from Modena, Italy and is an all-natural product. Our supplier has the product made especially for us by one of the most renowned balsamic producers in Italy who have perfected their artisan craft over generations. The high amount of grape in this product gives the thick viscosity and the decadent smooth sweet taste without the use of thickeners or sweeteners, nor do we adulterate the product with lesser grade vinegar. This is a winner in every dish and on every table.
CAUTION: Once tried, this balsamic can not only be addictive but your imagination may go wild with creativity. This affordable 25 Star Balsamic beats all.
Our flavored Balsamic Vinegars is accomplished by using our 25 Star Balsamic Vinegar as a base and introducing all-natural concentrates and extracts to create a world of flavors.
