Take a trip to the beautiful & historic Village at Winona Lake where you’ll find The Olive Branch. We are proud to provide our customers with fine Olive Oils & Balsamic Vinegars. You and your taste buds will travel around the world as you sample our products that come from Spain, Italy, Greece, Australia, Israel, Tunisia, Chile, and California. To ensure our products are freshest available, we buy our fine extra virgin and first cold pressed Olive Oils from the countries that are in season.
Our amazing flavored vinegars, from Modena, Italy, the balsamic capital of the world. Aged to perfection for 12-18 years. Our balsamic vinegars are made by the cooking of the grape juice over an open wood fire until a brown, syrupy liquid develops. This liquid is then placed in old wood barrels, typically made of oak, cherry, chestnut, ash or juniper wood, with the tops left open to allow for evaporation.
Our olive oils actually come from all over the world. We 'follow the crush', meaning that we get our olive oils fresh from the countries that are producing olive oil at the time.
We vary our olive oil sources so we can provide our customers with the freshest olive oil possible! Over 50 authentic flavors of pure extra virgin olive oils-there’s a flavor for every palette.
