Some people enjoy wine bars or beer tastings, I love a visit to Oro di Oliva for fine olive oil and balsamic vinegar. The balsamics are offered in white, wine, and dark varieties. There are sublime flavors like Fig, Black Currant, and Espresso along with unique combinations of Blackberry Ginger, Lemongrass Mint, and Cranberry Pear. The extra virgin olive oils are seasonal and their country of origin varies throughout the year depending on where crops are flourishing. When paired with balsamics, the special flavored oils such as Lemon, Herbes de Provence or Chipotle create a bouquet of taste and add depth to dishes.
Customers are encouraged to sample all the offerings and knowledgeable staff are happy to suggest pairings and recipe ideas. The benefits of olive oil and vinegar are widely acknowledged so any choice is a healthy and delicious one.
Oro di Oliva has four locations in the greater Milwaukee area as well as on-line ordering.
