New Olive-Oil only store in The Arboretum?

Just heard a mention about it on KMFA. Said they specialized in olive oils and vinegars but I was too slow to write down their name or web site. Anybody been there?

  1. Saw this place today, it's by Restoration Hardware. Didn't go in, however. Looked like it might be too pricey for me, but that's just a feeling.

      I went in there today. Nice friendly people and very reasonable prices. Virtually everything, excluding the truffle oils was under $20 a bottle and it's great fun to taste the different balsamics and olive oils

    2. well, i checked to see if it was an o & co., as i am familiar with their boutiques.
      but, it's not.
      hopefully it's a local business-- that area totally needs more of that.

      1. It could be Con' Olio is moving from the Arboretum to the Domain... They sell vinegars and olive oil.

            We are planning on staying in the Arboretum location for a long time and not looking to move to the Domain. We are a local Austin business and definitely not a chain, although we got our idea originally from an Oil & Vinegar Boutique in Paris.

              so happy that the Domain hasn't killed business at the Arboretum!

          2. You know there is Bella Vista Ranch in Wimberley which has olive oil tastings and balsamic vineger tastings during the week. It is the only olive orchard in central Texas.

              went out there in the fall. Owner was very informative, had a very interesting tour overall. I was hungover as hell but he kept me hooked. The olive oil of course was tasty. If you're out that way check it out. You'll learn a lot.
