The staff at Olive 'n Vinnie's Market believes you should never buy an olive oil or balsamic vinegar before tasting it. That's why they generously pour out samples of their more than 20 flavored balsamic vinegars and more than 30 cold-pressed extra-virgin olive oils. Their olive oils take on flavors such as garlic, mushroom, sage, lemon, and even butter, which offers a healthier option to consume the treat, beyond using it as chapstick.
Though they carry olive oils from throughout the world, their balsamic vinegars come from only one source: Modena, Italy. All their flavored vinegars are made in Modena, the city where it has been a staple since the middle ages. Their selection often veers a little from the traditional recipe, incorporating ingredients such as pomegranate, figs, dark chocolate, and espresso. These flavors add a sweet touch that make them perfect for salad dressings or dipping sauces.
