We had a great time sampling the abundant selection of olive oils. The staff were friendly and very informative. They made the visit for us so much more interesting by personally describing all the types and combinations of oils and vinegars while suggesting preparation options. If not for the educated staff, I would have been lost. This business is very... More

We visited on a Sunday around 5 pm, just before the store closed at 6 pm. We were promptly greated by a staff person who was very knowledgeable. She led us through the two tasting rooms and explained all of the oils and vinegars, the meaning of "infused" olive oil, "fused" olive oil, and specialty blend olive oils, the aging... More

After randomly walking by this little shop, we decided to see what it was all about. We were greeted at the door with a smile, and led through a world of sweet and savory exotic flavors. We were shown how to combine oils and vinegars, and had to taste almost every Olive oil in house. We left with oils and... More

Michele guided us through the wonderful selection of olive oils and vinegars, suggesting combinations and ways to cook with them. Tasting is encouraged, and we were not pressured to purchase anything. I am looking forward to trying our oil and vinegar at home. We will definitely return on our next visit to Abingdon!

What a unique store. I never knew there were so many different types of olive oils and balsamic vinegars. All available for tasting and a very knowledgeable staff that explains in detail everything about the products they sell. A great place to stop into if you are visiting Abingdon, you won't be dissapionted

Visited the Bristol location and bought some Tuscan Herb. While the olive oil is good, the tasting experience in the store was not enjoyable. The tasting experience consisted of multiple sample spoons quickly fed to you one after another with no breaks or even water. After I had to throw in the towel, my wife spotted a jar of bread...

Who would have thought that Coconut Oil and Lime Balsamic Vinegar are really great. Visiting the Olive Oil Company was a treat. Explanations of the different oils and vinegars very interesting. Bonus is that oils and vinegars can be shipped in a secure padded box. Ended up with four bottles and two dispensers.

If you love great olive oils and balsamic vinegars, you must stop by this great shop on Main Street. The owner and staff are very friendly and helpful, and the olive oils and vinegars are AMAZING. You must not miss this stop on your visit to Abingdon, Virginia.

My husband and I visited the Olive Oil Company today and were delighted at the personal tour and tasting. I have never seen anything like this, a shop with dozens of varieties of high quality oils and gourmet vinegars. We sampled several and I wanted to purchase all I tried. We ended up with Blood Orange Olive Oil, Pear and... More

We learned a great deal about olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and infusions and had the opportunity to try just about everything the store offers. The owner is gracious, knowledgeable, and obviously loves what she does. Visitors are encouraged to sample, to mix oils and vinegars, try new flavor combinations and ask questions. It was a delightful experience.
