The first time we visited Olivins we purchased their 18 year aged balsamic. It was thick and delicious and completely ruined all other balsamic for us. We live two hours away and the balsamic alone is worth the trip back (not to mention the visit to beautiful St. Michaels), but we were happy to find that Olivins also delivers. During... More

If you only have a little time make sure you stop in at Olivins! The shop is filled with many varieties of honey, infused oils, balsalmic vinegars and so much more. The owner has an abundance of information on all of his products and recipes to go along with them. Make sure to try the many samples that are provided.... More

We parked at a city owned lot directly behind Olivins and so it was the first shop we visited on our weekend getaway (even before check in at our Inn).

Outstanding shop and owner. Stopped by off season and was so disappointed they were closed. Owner offered to open for us and was very friendly and informative. Found some bread for tasting and encouraged us to sample as much as we wanted! No rush, no pressure, just a wonderful visit! We left with several bottles and a cookbook! He also... More

Two friends and I stopped in here- lured in by the signs encouraging us to come in and taste! Best random stop ever- this store is such a gem! We loved tasting all of the fantastic balsamics, olive oils, honeys, and chocolates. The most difficult thing was figuring out which ones we couldn't live without!

Whenever we visit St. Michaels we make a point to stop in here. A wide variety of olive oils and vinegars can be sampled. The owner is incredibly knowledgable about his products and is most willing to share. He's even written a cook book! Other items that can be purchased there are honey and salts and samples of brownies that... More

Almost passed this store by as my sisters and I browsed the streets and streets of shops in St Michael's. A couple who had just visited the store, encouraged us to go inside, as it is something not to be missed....so, we did. We were pleasantly surprised. The lady at the counter was very sweet and very knowledgeable about all... More

Here's a place where you could just buy the whole store. The had wonderful olive oils and I purchased many. The selection is huge and they let you sample. The bread upstairs (used for sampling) was moldy though. The employee was super nice and knowledgable.
