From Traverse City to Glen Arbor!  An assortment of Fustini’s olive oils and balsamic vinegar’s are now available at Northwoods Home & Gift.  We are very excited to have our very own “tasting table” on the front counter.

Fustini founder, Jim Milligan came and spent time with our staff running us through the “tasting” paces.  Not too difficult for us to get excited about as we are all “users”.  In fact it was a recent trip into downtown Traverse City to get my aged balsamic vinegar and Arbequina olive oil that made me pause and say to myself, “Why in the heck am I driving downtown Traverse City in July to get my Fustini fix?  We should sell  some of their oils and vinegar’s at the shop!”  Jim happened to be outside fixing a flower basket when I arrived and voila!  We made a plan.

Olive Oils we’re carrying:  Arbequina (hands down the freshest tasting olive oil I’ve had with mild acidity), Meyer Lemon (think salad, fish, vegetables), Tuscan Herb (ditto) and Garlic (super easy mashed or roasted potatoes).  Vinegar’s we’re carrying:  Sicilian Lemon, Traverse City Cherry, West Michigan Blueberry, and everyone’s “must have” Fustini’s 18-Year Aged Balsamic.

We’ve also got the same assortment of  small sample bottles which make great gifts, or is a nice way to sample an oil or vinegar before you purchase.  We’ve also got their stoppers and gravity pour toppers.  Stop in and TASTE with us!
