Attraction details
Owner description: Our retail store, located in the center of the Historic District of Old Town Cottonwood, has become a dream come true that started for us in the spring of 2010. Main Street in Old Town Cottonwood is a pedestrian friendly two blocks of historic looking shops that include four wine tasting rooms, featuring Arizona's finest wines, popular restaurants, an artesian bakery, and an eclectic collection of clothing, antique and specialty shops. Each of our 20 varieties of olive oils are specifically selected and imported from both the northern and southern hemispheres to provide our in-store guests and on-line shoppers with the most recently produced and healthiest oils available anywhere. We only purchase our fresh olive oils in small batches to insure ultimate freshness. This is why our selection of imported olive oils will change from season to season. We also import a variety of white and red balsamic condiment vinegars from Modena, Italy. Each of these are aged up to 18 years produced using the traditional Solera method yielding a rich smooth product unlike balsamic vinegars found in your grocery store. We have also sourced and sell a delicious White Truffle Oil (Liquid Gold) and Black Truffle Sea Salt along with other unique culinary delights. If you are looking for a gift but aren't sure what to buy - we offer gift certificates good towards any purchase - and they never expire! Check our website often as there is always something new, including seasonal products and recipe and gift ideas.

It took a while to even want to taste olive oil?! Once I did taste five or so flavors of the olive oil and vinegar I was hooked! Great experience!

Last weekend, we had a trip to the Verde Valley Wine Country. The stop was completed when we visited Verde Valley Olive Oil Traders. I had a must get on my list: Dark Chocolate Basalmic Vinegar. It was a summer staple for our yogurt breakfast and I was almost out! Also wonderful as a "reduction" for dipping strawberries!! Sampled many vinegars and oils; and that is the whole point, you get to try before you buy! Picked up a Cinnamon Pear Basalmic too, thinking it will be a lovely addition to poaching pears for Christmas dinner! The staff is wonderful, and the tasting is so much fun for a foodie, gourmet cook like me.

Bought a bottle of 18 year balsamic vinegar today to have with dipping bread tonight, when my husband tasted it he said "why didn't we get this sooner". We will never get the cheap stuff from the grocery store again. Verde Valley Olive Oil Traders recently moved and the building they are in now is so beautiful, stop in and check it out and try some olive oil or balsamic vinegar while you're there.

You will never be able to taste all that they have here! Select a few to try! The help is very friendly with the tastings. They are all free to taste with the exception of one that costs one dollar. They ship all over, and also have specials when you purchase more than one bottle. Great products with great tastes!
