“Something different!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

We took a day trip to Niagara on the lake during our honeymoon in Ontario and were pleasantly surprised to find something different along the main street. The Oliv tasting room was a nice change from all of the shops and restaurants, and not just a quick stop but a tasting experience. We purchased several bottles of oil and vinegar to bring home and experiment on many different foods. We look forward to all of the wonderful, flavorful meals ahead thanks to Oliv's great products! The lady that helped us was excellent as well. Very knowledgeable and patient!

“large variety oils & vinegars”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

A great place to visit if you enjoy cooking or even just tasting. There's a huge selection of oils from South Africa-plain & flavoured. You're instructed how to taste them properly:sniff, place palm over cup, sniff again, then drink. They also have balsamic vinegar that is purchased from Modena, Italy and bottled in their factory in South Africa. The vinegars can be mixed to make different flavours. It was a fun experience. We purchased an oil & a vinegar-not cheap but perfect for a special salad.

“A Necessary Stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

I was recently on a "Taste the Towns" tour and this was one of our stops. It was an amazing culinary experience. We were treated to olive oil and balsamic tastings, along with superb food pairings. The whole event exceeded anything I could have thought. Afterwards we returned to purchase a number of the oils and balsamic offerings. I would recommend you make this a stop on your trip to Niagara-on-the-lake. You will not be disappointed.

“A pleasent surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

My wife and I stopped into the tasting room because we needed to blow off some time before dinner. I'm so glad we did. I never knew so many different flavors of olive oils existed! The women that helped us truly seemed to love her job and creating different combinations. She did her job so well, that we had trouble deciding what to purchase. We ended up buying two bottles, which are not cheap. We used them both within a few days of returning from our vacation and they are certainly very high quality and add a lot of flavor to our dishes.
