I have to admit something. When We Olive first opened its doors in Southern California I wondered how a store selling only olive oil could survive...especially during these tough economic times. Well folks, don't let the name fool you. We Olive is more than just olive oil. Of course they have an amazing selection of oils and balsamic vinegars but they also stock tapenades, mustards, gift items and more. A huge number of the items are actually from California companies.
There are currently 8 charming stores in California. This particular location is situated in the Blemont Shore neighborhood of Long Beach, CA. I just love this area!

I have to agree with the company's quote. There are tasting stations throughout the store but the "Tasting Bar" is center stage. The owners are very warm and make you feel welcome so you don't feel intimidated tasting the products. In fact they encourage it! It makes for a fun shopping experience. The owners are also very knowledgeable about the products they carry and can assist you in making just the right purchase. They helped me choose a chipotle flavored olive oil. It definitely was the right purchase for me because I recently went back to buy a second bottle.
Bath and body products as well as other related gift items are also available.
Now where else can you find Peach White Balsamic Vinegar?
