This amazing little olive oil and vinegar shop was our last stop during our Asheville, North Carolina trip. I had been looking forward to it ever since we first discovered it online, and I couldn’t have been more impressed.

The first thing we were invited to do was to start tasting some of the olive oils and balsamic’s. I of course started off with the Basil and Rosemary before venturing a few of the balsamics. (For those of you who regularly read this blog, you’ll know that I really don’t care for balsamics!) However, the Cherry Almond and the Chocolate were amazing!

We learned a few interesting things about how olive oil is not just tasty to eat, but it can also be very good for your health. Thanks to the Vitamin E contained in olive oil, you can help manage your cholesterol and lower your blood pressure. Balsamics also have health benefits, just have some before a meal and you’ll cut your glycemic index in half.

They had some amazing bottle choices, whether you wanted a the usual or something with something more artistic.
