This month, I would like to feature We Olive Los Gatos.
We Olive brings a unique blend of retail gourmet foods, California grown olive oils and vinegars, small batch wines and a tapas menu featuring our favorite retail products. If you have never visited a We Olive & Wine Bar, then you will be in for a treat! Complimentary tastings of all of their California Extra Virgin Olive Oils, vinegars, and gourmet foods are offered every day.
We Olive’s goal is to bring an experience to guests unlike any other; the “Olive Oil Experience”. Their humble beginnings were started not far from Los Gatos, in the town of Paso Robles, back in 2002. Paso Robles, a Central California Coast hotbed for vineyards and winemakers, is also a prime growing region for olives. We Olive’s founders began to realize that there were tasting rooms and collectives all over town where a visitor could experience local wine, but with all of the olive oil producers in town, there was still no place to taste local EVOO. And so, in the back of the local grocery store, on a pop up card table with sample bottles of local liquid gold…We Olive was born. In 2003, their first official store dedicated to showcasing premier California grown olive oils and gourmet food products opened its doors.
Now it has been over a decade of the We Olive brand bringing education and experience to their consumers and they have opened stores across the country. Born from a passion, We Olive has become the premier destination for tasting olive oils and a place where California’s local artisan growers could market their freshly-made, delicious and healthy Extra Virgin Olive Oil. In 2011, they opened the first We Olive & Wine Bar in San Diego’s seaside community of La Jolla, which brought the natural pairing of artisan wine with hand crafted gourmet foods and olive oil together. Expanding the We Olive experience by integrating an educational, tasting-oriented wine bar with our retail gourmet food tasting has proven to be a success!
Mention that you heard about We Olive Los Gatos from Ah New Beginnings and Michael Di Carlo will take care of you!
