About Emerald coast Olive Oil
We love fine olive oils and vinegar, and we love sharing them with you. As sisters, we opened our first store in Panama City Beach in 2014. We purchased our Destin store two years later from our dear friend, Dar Zook, when she retired.
Having a background in food history (Wendy) and business (Lorraine), we moved back from St. Kitts in the Caribbean where we had had a cooking school. We had enjoyed teaching our visitors about regional food, and it was natural to find a new niche with our wonderful oils and vinegars here in Florida.
We couldn't be more enthusiastic about the quality of our products. Our 100% ultra premium certified extra virgin olive oils are among the best in the world. They are single varietals that can be traced from the tree to the bottle to ensure their quality and freshness. Our flavored oils are made from these same fine oils to which are added top quality natural herbs, fruit and vegetables resulting in pure flavors that make cooking a joy. Our oils have been certified to have no fertilizers or pesticides present.
Our vinegars are made with the same care. They are made and aged in Modena, Italy, using no more than 5% wine vinegar to start the aging process. There are no artificial ingredients or additives in our base white and dark vinegars -- nothing but grapes! Only the freshest, purest ingredients are used to make our wonderful flavored vinegars. We know you'll love them as much as we do.
We invite to you visit our stores to sample our 60-plus oils and vinegars. If you're looking for items for yourself or for gifts, we'll be happy to help in our store, on-line or by phone. Our knowledgeable staff is ready to help.
