I purchased their chile oil and it's fantastic. Not over powering as the majority of my family does like the heat but just enough spice and flavor to taste. Great variety of many oils and vinegars.

I love their basil olive oil, just recently discovered their rosemary olive oil and their balsamic vinegar is fantastic! It is great with breads or drizzled over fresh or roasted veggies.

This is my favorite stop in St. Helena. The wineries I often visit always vary, but this is one consistent must. I load up on olive oil for the year and am always thrilled to take away a selection of cheese, sausage and bread for a picnic later in the day.

St. Helena Olive Oil Company is well worth the visit. They are now located in a historic former bank and their products are absolutely wonderful! The flavored olive oils are exceptional!

We discovered that their bigger store has closed and is now two shops. One for olive oil and another for bath and body. We preferred the old store that had recipes and much more tastings and offerings.

I used to visit this location in Rutherford, but they have now moved to the main street in St Helena. I you are coming from Napa, they are on the left. Parking is best on a side street or parallel in back to the main street. Ok, are you looking for foodie shopping? Well, you found a store I visit... More

I love this place and i order their flavored olive oils and seasoned vinegars and flavored dipping olive oil all the time. I also give them as gifts and people rave about them. They give free shipping if you order $75 or more. You have to go visit them and taste all their samples. You won't be able to resist... More
