Experience You Can Trust
THE OLIVE BRANCH STORY
When you stop by The Olive Branch, you will be able to taste flavors of the best EVOO’s and Balsamic Vinegars we have been able to find from all over the world. Our oils come from Spain, Italy, Greece, Australia, Israel, Tunisia, Chile, and California. They are purchased from the country that is currently producing to ensure freshness. All our oils are extra virgin and first cold pressed.
The Balsamics are from Modena, Italy, the balsamic capital of the world. The flavored balsamics are aged for 12 years. Our best seller, Traditional Balsamic, with no flavor added, is aged for 18 years. You must taste the product to appreciate the difference! Balsamics are a wonderful meat tenderizer, great as salad dressings alone or paired with EVOO, and enjoy drizzled over hot green vegetables like grilled squash, tomatoes, spinach, asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower or green beans. For more useful ideas, see our recipe page.
The main store is located in Toscana Park on Gumwood Road, just north of U.S. 23. Toscana Park is a unique European style shopping and living experience. You can leisurely walk around the piazza enjoying Italian fountains, gelato, entertainment, organic food markets, restaurants and one of a kind shops.
At the Olive Branch we have tasting stations for each of our EVOOs and balsamic vinegars. We think you should be able to try our product before purchasing. We have over 30 stainless steel containers called fustis. These contain and dispense our EVOO and balsamic vinegars.
Side by side you’ll be able to taste the differences in our “non flavored” extra virgin olive oils, maybe you like your oil to taste more green or from a specific region such as Greece or Spain. By sampling you can decide what’s best for your taste.
Family Owned and Operated
FRIENDLY AND WELCOMING ATMOSPHERE
The Olive Branch is locally owned and operated. The staff is readily available to assist you with all your olive oil and vinegar needs. We encourage you to dip our fresh bread cubes into the flavors to taste the superior quality. Bread dipping seasonings are available to add to any flavored oil so you can try before you buy. Many customers come up with tasty pairings. For example, the Blood Orange EVOO paired with the Tangerine Balsamic Vinegar makes a delightful salad dressing or meat marinade on pork or chicken.
Alone or together, our products are of superior quality and we’re certain you will enjoy them as much as we do. Make your meals unique and special today!
