A unique concept whose popularity has surged in recent years, Crystal City Olive Oil is a self-defined "tasting store," where customers will enjoy olive oil in an experience like no other, sampling varieties from around the world.
Owner Wendy Oppenheim is no stranger to the world of olive oil. A longtime resident of the Hudson Valley, Oppenheim quickly became a regular at a similar concept store near her home.
Oppenheim has unlocked the secret to freshness by bottling each customer's olive oil order instantly, on the spot. A constantly-changing variety of products showcases oils from Italy, Spain, Tunisia, Argentina, Chile and the United States, to name a few. Customers are invited to visit the store, open 7 days a week. In addition to more than two dozen specialty olive oils, the store's inventory includes balsamic vinegars, spices, herbs, food products and tasting dishes.
