The gift of good taste.

Let's Keep Warm!

With 6 more weeks of winter in full swing, as indicated by the famous Punxsutawney Phil and confirmed by the latest batch of snow, Olio has been staying warm with some of these delicious delights!

Pasta Sauce

Nothing feels, smells or tastes better than a big bowl of pasta. Olio’s wine-based pasta sauces have no added sugar, gluten-free, and are made from the freshest ingredients (no artificial flavoring!). The tomatoes are harvested from a 4th generation family farm in Ohio and the wine is imported from Italy or crafted in California (depending on the sauce). We have four different flavors available: Fresh Tomato & HerbTriple Olive & Artichoke PuttanescaCreamy Vodka Parmesanand Creamy Vodka Spicy Roasted Garlic. These are available in two sizes 16oz (sold for $6.50) or 25oz ($8.99).

Think about pairing our sauce with our outstanding Pappardelle’s pasta!

Capital Teas

As you know, we offer a variety of Capital Teas at both our Old Town Alexandria and Middleburg stores. All of their tea is outstanding (brewing a single batch makes our store smell delicious) - but I want to focus on is one of my absolute favorites. This tea is the perfect combination of black and green teas enhanced with orange peel, jackfruit, and almonds. Chesapeake Sunrise Tea is one of their three signature blends that will brighten even your coldest mornings. This tea is a great source of antioxidants, which has been shown to lower the risk of heart disease.

Ghost Pepper Salt

This salt will definitely heat up any dish you make! This fiery salt is is made from pure, unrefined sea salt and the Naga Jolokia pepper, giving it a spicy hot flavor that is without compare. Named for one of the most venomous snakes in India, this pepper, also known as the King Cobra Chili, has a blazing heat that is out of this world. For some flaming flavor, sprinkle over chicken wings, chili, or your fajitas, but beware – this salt bites back!

Whether you are warming up this winter with a soothing cup of tea or a heating up your kitchen with our scorching salt, we hope that you keep us in mind for all of your culinary needs.
