We invite you to indulge in Gourmet Olive Oils, Balsamic Vinegars and Spices. Come in, make yourselves at home! Become immersed in rich and vivid sights, smells and tastes. Join us on this wonderful expedition! For the past 29 years, our journey has taken us to various countries where we became enthralled in the world of oils and spices. Living and travelling abroad has allowed us to explore the finest in savory spices, gourmet oils, and seasonings from home, charming ourselves and our daughters along the way. Now a family tradition, every home-cooked meal incorporates different oils and spices, enticing our taste buds with exciting new flavors.
Life is full of wonders, and we are fortunate to have lived next to an amazing Italian family (the Calamai family) for 16 years. Our lives changed when we were introduced to freshly pressed olive oils, straight from the Cantina. We grew to love fresh oils and continue to further expand our palate with gourmet olive oils, vinegars, and spices. We had the privilege to visit the Calamai family several times in Romola (near Florence), Italy and were fortunate to visit the Cantina, where the olives are first pressed. That did it, we were in love!

We pride ourselves on selling only the finest olive oils and balsamic vinegars from all over the world.
