This is a must visit shop if you like EVOO and speciality vinegars. A favorite is the peach vinegar which is great with fruit salad.

Here you'll find herb infused olive oils and balsamic vinegar. You can wander around the shop and sample the different selections. There is also a small selection of wines which are modestly priced. A good place to stop for a gift.
