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.

Great customer service FROM THE OWNER. He was on the floor helping customers just like his employees, so obviously very knowledgeable. We sampled so many unique flavors of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. We purchase 5 for ourselves and some for holiday gifts. Awesome Arizona small business

I'd been to Verde Valley Olive Oil Traders about a year ago and returned to buy more products. They have an amazing array of oils and vinegars to choose from!! The staff was very helpful in recommending various combinations to try as dressings or marinades. Plus, they now also make fresh fudge. I will personally say that the chocolate salted... More

Love this place, the attendants are knowledgeable but not pushy, you can taste everything before you buy. The prices are modest for top quality and the atmosphere is beautiful. Stayed and visited in the comfortable and accommodating environment, it was really fun. Whenever I am in Cottonwood this is a must do stop. I also learned about new and wonderful... More

They have complimentary olive oil and vinegar tastings. The large number of flavor infused olive oils, white and dark balsamic vinegars is fantastic. They are friendly and helpful picking out pairings for the perfect blends of flavors. The hardest part is deciding on only a couple ( I bought 4). They also have truffle oil and many flavors of fudge... More

Staff is very well trained and eager to share their knowledge. (Sorry can not remember the young girl on Friday September 9, 2016). She knew how to describe the oils and vinegars with enthusiasm and came up with amazing pairings. Very good to know that they ship and anxiously awaiting my bottles to arrive.

Thank BethBZ
