Warwick Valley Olive Oil Company Officially Opens

A new shop offers high-quality olive oils, vinegar, spices, and other goodies in the heart of Orange County

Those searching for the newest health trend need not look further than their kitchen cabinet to find a bottle of extra virgin olive oil, which is touted for its many benefits. But why settle for the grocery store brand when you can purchase quality, homemade oils right in your own backyard? 

Warwick Valley Olive Oil Company, which officially celebrated its grand opening on June 5, aims to bring more flavorful oils and vinegars to locals, giving them the unique opportunity to sample them at the on-site tap room. According to its founders Diane and Chris Zimmerli, Andrea Volter, and Arthur Baxter — a group of self-described business owners, gourmet cooks, an interior designer, aerospace engineer, and all-around “lovers of good and healthy foods” — the company is one of the very few stores in the country licensed to offer “ultra premium” extra virgin olive oils. (That’s “super high quality” in layman’s terms; the phrase “extra virgin olive oil” is loosely regulated and mass-produced nowadays.)

The shop also offers a variety of infused oils, vinegars, sea salts, spices, and artisan items that make for great gift items for fellow cooks.

Though the shop has only been open for a few months (it’s officially been in business since March), it’s already receiving rave reviews on its Facebook page. One happy customer writes, “I finally got to stop in today and all I can say is, wow! Everything is delicious and the staff is so kind and helpful. Bought a few things and I know I will be back in very soon!”

In the near future, this budding business hopes to have their products available for sale on its Web site.
