Commitment to Artisan Growers of California Olive Oil
Since its conception, We Olive has been a place where California’s local artisan growers could market their freshly made, delicious, and healthy Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO). After all, why buy imported when there are so many local growers that produce exceptional EVOO? Working with these local artisans to market their products is what the We Olive brand is all about. Keeping true to this, We Olive only sells California Olive Oil Council (COOC) approved California produced Extra Virgin Olive Oils. On a daily basis, we give customers the opportunity to discover California’s finest Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and we’re proud to do so!
Olive oil is truly one of nature’s greatest gifts. When We Olive opened its first store in 2003, it was our goal to share this gift with consumers across the state. We Olive quickly blossomed into a place where family, friends, neighbors, artisans, and local business owners alike could come together to share in an educational, culinary shopping experience.
Now, a decade later, We Olive is California’s premier olive oil tasting bar. Guests can enjoy “The Olive Oil Experience” by partaking in one of our complimentary daily tastings where over 20 locally produced olive oils can be sampled. During the tasting, guests get the opportunity to also learn about the different growers, the olive oil itself, and the various ways to utilize the olive oil in the culinary world. We even have local growers and members of the California Olive Oil Council in to guide the tastings from time to time! Interacting with these trade professionals gives customers the opportunity to learn more about the products they are sampling, while simultaneously feeling a connection with the industry itself.
In addition to the artisan EVOO, We Olive also carries hand-crafted tapenades, mustards, pestos, balsamic vinegar, and more! All of these products greatly enhance the culinary experience that olive oil provides, making them perfect compliments to the We Olive brand.
