Now, you don’t have to travel to the far southeast Valley to get your hands on Queen Creek Olive Mill’s extra virgin olive oil and gourmet food products. Family-owned and -operated Queen Creek Olive Mill–the only producer of extra virgin olive oil in the state–has just announced the opening of its first retail store and tasting room, Oils & Olives by the Queen Creek Olive Mill, now open at Kierland Commons in Scottsdale.
Oils & Olives will be hosting its Grand Opening event Saturday, Sept. 1 through Monday, Sept. 3. During this weekend, guests will receive a voucher for two “Olive Oil 101″ tour tickets at the Olive Mill with every purchase. There will also be an opportunity to win lunch for four at the Olive Mill’s on-site trattoria, del Piero–including a tour and a bottle of their private label sparkling wine–once a day during the grand opening celebration.
At the new shop, customers are invited to pick up Queen Creek Olive Mill’s famous selection of Extra Virgin Olive Oils (EVOO), stuffed olives, tapenades, organic bath and body items, homemade pasta sauces, fine wines, and many other unique local and imported treasures.
In addition to Queen Creek Olive Mill’s popular EVOO, Oils and Olives carries all of the customer favorites, including the bacon-flavor olive oil and other delicious infused EVOOs used for baking like Chocolate, Vanilla Bean, Meyer Lemon, Mexican Lime and Blood Orange.
“I have grown up with the Olive Mill, and I am excited to take this to the next level,” says Sydney Rea, store manager and oldest daughter of Perry Rae, owner. “My father has done such a wonderful job creating a local favorite destination and I am proud to be the first to bring the ‘fruits of his labor’ to Scottsdale.” www.queencreekolivemill.com.
