You no longer have to travel to Queen Creek to taste and experience the local flavors of the Queen Creek Olive Mill.
Perry Rea started with an idea to plant some olive trees roughly a decade ago. Since then, he has created a charming Olive Mill in Queen creek with tours, food, and locally produced olive oils.
But, now you can get the Queen Creek Olive Mill's famous, locally made extra virgin olive oil and gourmet food products in Scottsdale.
Queen Creek Olive Mill has opened its first retail store and tasting room, Oils & Olives by the Queen Creek Olive Mill, at Kierland Commons.
At the store you'll find a wide selection of their Extra Virgin Olive Oils (EVOO), stuffed olives, tapenades, organic bath and body items, homemade pasta sauces, and locally produced wines.
Queen Creek Olive Mill is Arizona's only producer of EVOO, and Oils and Olives carries all of the favorites including the widely popular bacon-flavored olive oil and other delicious infused EVOOs used for baking like Chocolate, Vanilla Bean, Meyer Lemon, Mexican Lime, and Blood Orange.
They also have savory oils perfect for drizzling or sautéing such as Roasted Garlic, Chili, or White Truffle, each is handcrafted by Master Blender and Owner of the Olive Mill, Perry Rea.
Oils & Olives Grand Opening Celebration will be held over Labor Day Weekend.
EVOO lovers and foodies alike will receive a voucher for two "Olive Oil 101" tour tickets at the Queen Creek Olive Mill with every purchase.
There will also be an opportunity to win lunch for four at the Olive Mill's onsite trattoria, del Piero - including a tour and a bottle of their private label sparkling wine - once a day during the three-day celebration.
Saturday, September 1st through Monday, September 3rd, 2012.
7122 East Greenway Parkway, Suite #120, in Scottsdale (Next to Bobby's Restaurant).
