You may remember me posting about this store a few years ago. I am happy to report that not only are they doing well, they are thriving -- they have added a second location. In the St Philip's store location (the original store) they also have a cheese store, "Blu." In addition to their superb oils and balsamics you can now also sample some heavenly cheese. I bought a piece of Wisconsin-made cheese named "Marisa" and it was sublime. The Alfonso store is a Tucson original and is owned by Tom and Nancy Alfonso. They are happy to educate you about their awesome products and I'm happy to shop a locally owned store. Here's their website: www.alfonsooiliveoil.com Happy shopping and bon appetit!
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
