There are 2 stores that you can taste the best olive oils and vinegars. They have so many delish varieties that you can sample before your purchase. Just like fine wines that speak to you differently...here's a place that is dedicated to highten your palate to great olive oils and balsamic vinegars. My wife and I went to the store in the town of Beacon(their second store) located at 257 Main Street, Beacon NY 12508 and had the most informative and yummy experience. We walked away purchasing 2 bottles of the most delish vinegars that we've tasted in awhile. Of course my wife liked the grapefruit balsamic vinegar and I totally adored the Saba vinegar. There were more choices but we decided we'll start with these 2 first. You get to purchase the size bottle you want and then allowed to fill them...how much fun is that? In the future you can return with the bottles to get them refilled again without purchasing another bottle. It's like a gourmet fill-up of your choice...again what a delightful way of keeping the clientel and costs down. Kudos to Donna and Cory Wirthmann, mother and son proprietors of these 2 lovely stores. Please note that this place is not a restaurant but a olive oil and vinegar retail store.
They also have spice rubs, organic pastas, salts, and many imported items too numerous to mention. Please drop in to check them out...you won't be disappointed and probably walk out with some filled bottles of your choice. Because you get to taste what you buy first...you will really get to enjoy it first hand. Happy tasting and I'll see ya at the shop!
