!Viva Oliva!

I just love celebrating birthday “month”. Some people only get to celebrate for a day. Me – I will celebrate it as much as possible! 🙂 I was very pleasantly surprised to find yet another birthday present outside my door this morning. It was delicious gift of gourmet olive oils and balsamic vinegar from my dear friend Andrea, out in California. Andrea and I have been friends and family since we were 12, and the good times just keep on coming, even after all these years and being separated by a few states.

Viva Oliva is a gourmet olive oil shop located in Santa Barbara, CA. We all know California is known for its great wines, but it is also known for its great olive oils as well. Where there is wine, there are olives.

Viva Oliva has been in business since 2010, and they “have been dedicated to sourcing and retailing the freshest and highest quality extra virgin olive oilsbalsamic vinegars and gourmet, artisan foods. The extra virgin olive oils that [they] sell all comply with the highest quality standard in the world, known as Ultra Premium (UP). [They] source [their] oils from both the southern and northern hemispheres of the world, thereby ensuring [they] always keep the freshest products in stock.” As you can see, they have a wide variety of specialty and gourmet items.

My Viva Oliva gift pack included 2 gourmet olive oils and one gourmet balsamic vinegar. The olive oils were an Arbequena Extra Virgin Olive oil and a Tuscan Herb Olive Oil and the balsamic vinegar is made from infusions of Black Mission Figs. Don’t those all sound amazing? I can’t wait to try them, especially the Black Mission Fig Balsamic Vinegar. I already have something in mind for that too. You’ll just have to be a little patient and wait a bit. 🙂

Viva Oliva is located at 927 State Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93101. You can contact them by phone at (805) 886-4342 or on their website at http://www.vivaoliva.com or on Facebook at vivaolivasantabarbara. They will ship anything you like anywhere in the US.

Muchas Gracias mi Amiga. Te amo mucho.

Stay safe and stay well Everyone. ‘Til next time.
