Welcome to Frescolio ─ Winnipeg’s first specialty store that features a wide selection of gourmet-quality extra-virgin olive oils and vinegars in a tasting-bar setting. At Frescolio, you will be encouraged to sample as many oils and vinegars as you wish prior to making a decision on what appeals to you most.
For an oil to be legitimately called “extra-virgin”, it must meet several international criteria such as means of production, chemical makeup, purity and taste. Every oil at Frescolio exceeds these criteria. We bring in oils from around the world, including Greece, Spain, Australia, Morocco, Chile, and California.
In addition to great flavours, extra-virgin olive oils are known for their health benefits; for example, they contain no cholesterol, they have high levels of antioxidants, and they are high in mono-unsaturated fats.
True balsamic vinegars originate in one of two Italian provinces – Modena and Reggio Emilio. They are aged for up to 18 years before being shipped to be sold. The aging process of the highest-quality balsamic vinegar is done in specific, traditional steps resulting in a superb-tasting product that may be used on its own or paired with an olive oil.
