Olive and Vine

Whether you are a foodie, a chef, or just enjoy good food, there is a new culinary destination
spot for you to try. OLIVE & VINE, a retail shop and “tasting bar,” features an
ever-evolving roster of premium, fresh, extra virgin olive oils and aged balsamic vinegars
perfect for cooking, snacking, and gifting. Owners Susan and Wayde Burt are former successful herb farmers in Texas and Hawaii.

The Burts will tell you about each product and encourage you to try as many as you like, from the large, stainless steel containers—called a “fusti”-that each one is stored. After that delicious and fun time, they will bottle your choices, with a label and a sealed top, using a hand held heat gun. Currently they are bottling their oil and balsamic products in 200ml ($9.95) and 375ml sizes ($17.95) with plans to potentially add a 500ml option if the market demands it. Their new harvest arrives ready for tasting on July 15.
