Oil and vinegar store Strippaggio now open in Promenade



Strippaggio, a store dedicated solely to ultra-high-quality olive oils and vinegars, is now open in the Promenade at Chenal. The store is named for the process by which professional olive oil tasters swish olive oil in order to rate them.

The store will provide bottles for customers to fill from bulk dispensers, and the oils will change with the growing season in source countries, including Greece, Chile and Italy. The store will also feature flavored oils as well. There is a "tasting bar" in case you want to swig a little oil before you buy.

Our only question is: can a store that occupies such a tight luxury niche really survive? After all, even the 1 percenters aren't deep-frying stuff in extra virgin olive oil squeezed out by the feet of extra Italian virgins. Still, stranger things have happened.
