What FIORE Artisan Olive Oils And Vinegars does through its in-store tasting rooms is offer an experiential tour of Northern and Southern Hemisphere harvests to introduce you to Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) from around the world and Aged Balsamic Vinegar from Modena, Italy. Close your eyes, breathe in the aroma of a fresh-from-the-grove EVOO and the barrels containing aged balsamic vinegars and when ready, introduce your palate to the positive sensory attributes detectable only through the most quality of culinary means.
For ultimate freshness, FIORE “chases the crush” ensuring a constant supply of the freshest EVOO available from regions growing, harvesting and crushing olives each season. From the fruit to the bottle, FIORE maximizes the authenticity of its products by limiting transport and air contamination. By hosting Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Aged Balsamic Vinegars in large stainless steel fusti throughout the stores, the FIORE tasting rooms offer samplings of the exact product for bottling. This allows the consumer the ability to craft unique blends of extra virgin olive oils and aged balsamic vinegars to their desired tastes. The oils and vinegars are then individually bottled and sealed on-site for purchase.
The mission of FIORE is to provide you, our consumer, with the freshest – highest quality – authentic – hard to find – specialty oils, vinegars and specialty foods, with excellent personal service in a pleasant educational atmosphere, all wrapped in the warm feel of a true artisanal shop.
