Oli & Ve opens second location and more news

161998_186974304739358_866004871_nOli & Ve, an olive oil and vinegar tasting room, recently opened a second location in Buckhead. The original location on Canton Street in historic Roswell, quickly won the hearts and dollars of locals. Owners Owners Suzanne Davidson and Deborah Hardee work with a respected supplier who imports extra virgin olive oil from around the world and balsamic vinegars from Modena, Italy.

All oils are tested both chemically and by professional tasters to ensure quality and claims of origin. The shop’s oils range in intensity from mild to robust and each are available for tasting. Davidson and Hardee train customers on proper tasting methods, much like wine. Slurping is okay here!

Oli & Ve’s products are seasonal and it is currently stocking new southern hemisphere single varietal extra virgin olive oils. You’ll also find a number of flavored oils and vinegars like the blood orange oil and fig balsamic. Check out the shop’s website for recipes incorporating flavored oils, like the blood orange brownies.

This specialty store also carries a line of gourmet food items, kitchen accessories, pottery and other gift items.

Buckhead location: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Mondays-Saturdays. 3263 Roswell Road, Atlanta. 404-841-1012.
