This city is known as “Winter Garden” in honor of the year-round growing opportunities here, and the citrus industry has been a major influence for more than a century.
On these pages we have talked a bit about the varied and eclectic eating establishments in Winter Garden, and mentioned that the core of this city is quite historic.
What we haven’t talked about is the Sacred Olive in historic Winter Garden.
If you are a lover of balsamic and other vinegars and how they mingle with wondrous and varied flavors of olive oils, you really need to stop in to the Sacred Olive in downtown Winter Garden.
Taste an amazing variety of olive oils, taste vinegars of all types and flavors, blend the two, dip the bread or sip the mix… amazing!
We stopped in to see what the store was all about and left with new knowledge about health imparting, flavor enhancing, olive oil.
Their website says it best; “The Sacred Olive’s mission is to educate; provide the highest quality olive oils and vinegars in the world; and create a divine tasting experience. We strive to bring health and delight to people and the meals they create, serve and eat with their families and friends. Integrity, love and kindness are our guiding principle”.
