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.

Loved their knowledge and how to mix the different oils together. I also tasted and bought the fudge. This is a fun shop. I would love to go back and take one of their cooking classes. The Tuscan oil is fantastic!

Of course the all of oil‘s and vinegar is fabulous, with many samples, but the reason we went was the fudge!! You will not be disappointed! We brought home multiple flavors of fudge, including dark chocolate caramel sea salt, mint chocolate, chocolate peanut butter, and Mexican chocolate. All were phenomenal and did not last long! A pretty generous hunk of fudge for about $7 as well. Very friendly staff also.

Upon entering, you are immediately greeted by Mike, the owner. You can learn as much (or as little) as you want about the various types of olive oils. Of course, the highlight is the tastings. He has approximately 42 varieties and all are available for sampling. As an added plus, you can also sample his fudge! If you go, make sure you tase the Dark Chocolate oil -unbelievable.

We walked in and were immediately greeted by Mike, the owner. He let us sample any of the oils and balsamic that we desired and even tried a little piece of fudge! We were hooked!! Went home with Heath fudge, Sicilian lemon balsamic and white raspberry balsamic! We are so eager to get home from vacation so we can try them both out! The fudge was a hit with everyone, too! After arriving back in Sedona we decided to order a couple of bottles of the balsamic from the stores website to send to a relative as a little surprise!! Will for sure be back to get more! Excellent customer service and merchandise!
