When you open the door to world-class, ultra fresh olive oils, balsamic vinegar and sea salts for the first time, it’s like walking into that Wonka dude’s chocolate factory, or seeing your first 3D movie on the big screen. That’s sure how it was for us. After that first time, we were hooked. In fact, the more we tasted and learned, the more convinced we became, that this was something we absolutely must share.
