O&V Tasting Room Elmira 


Hi, I'm Donita


I have always had a passion for health and wellness, clean eating, clean products, and l particularly pay attention to  my mental, emotional and  spiritual well being for myself and my family.


A huge dream l have had was to one day open a health food store of my own.  I have worked in the retail sector for most of my life in management and l credit most of my knowledge in retail to my past employment. 

I am a firm believer when presented with an opportunity take it and run with it. 

O&V was just that! This incredible opportunity came to me when my sister-in-law called and said this business was for sale. They say timing is everything and it was just at the perfect moment in my life. Italian Herb Fused olive oil  was the deal maker for me. Once l had a taste of this oil l was hooked. I couldn't wait to try it again on pasta.

It's not a health food store but a healthy food store.

It's a work in progress as l learn about this amazing world of FRESH DELICIOUS AUTHENTIC olive oils and vinegars!

I have tried Infused olive oil in the past but l really didn't know much about the process of Fused Olive oil.  It's really a unique flavour that l absolutely love.

If l have to travel far and wide to experience the flavours and see the  process that goes into authentic oils, well, this is a challenge l am definitely up for.

Why Olive Oil and Vinegar?

Because it is a part of almost every meal! When you taste olive oil and vinegar that is made with passion and truth, you are changed forever!

Every meal is an opportunity for enjoyment! A poor meal is a missed opportunity...we can't have that!
