I was visiting family in D.C. and they suggested going to Old Town (Alexandria, VA) specifically for this store. They have over 40 different kinds of olive oils and balsamic vinegars you can taste yourself (they provide little cubes of bread for dipping, too!). They also have loose leaf tea, pasta, and seasoning salts. The hardest thing was deciding on... More

We happened to stop by the tasting room and sampled many of the delicious olive oils and balsamic vinegars. There are at least 25 kinds of each to try and lots of bread. We purchased a set of 4 flavors and have used them for barbequing all summer and as appetizers. I wish I would have purchased more kinds. Learning... More

Lots of different types of olive oils, able to taste test in the shop, and reasonably priced. Also have spices and suggestions for pairings with different food & drink. Makes for great gifts.

You don't get much more specific than exclusively olive oil! This plCe is cool to look around in and sample assorted infused olive oils. I took my dad here (the master chef at my parents' house), and he really enjoyed it! He bought some oils to take home with him.

I found this place while visiting Old Town Alexandria. If you love Olive Oils this is the place to visit. They have various times along with balsamic vinegars as well. The staff was friendly. They assisted whenever needed but they left you to enjoy the experience. Great place to go and try something new. Definitely make sure you have time... More

The tastings are sooo delicious and the service is 5 star. Once you shop there, other business just don't match up. Hints and suggestions too!

A delightful shop that sells only olive oils and balsamic vinegars. The customer service was really great--attentive but not predatory. Large selection of flavor infused oils and vinegars and you can taste them ALL. I recommend the black walnut balsamic and kiwi white balsamic vinegar, but it was a difficult choice. Lots of helpful suggestions from the staff on use... More

This olive oil tasting room is simply a great find for anyone who uses oil or balsamic vinegar. You get to taste all of the products and mix and match a wide variety of exotic flavors. They can be used as dips, marinades, and many more creative suggestions that they throw your way. They even offer a handful of organic... More
