About Con’Olio Oils and Vinegars

Con’ Olio Oils and Vinegars was the first premium olive oil tasting bar in Austin. The Con’ Olio experience — influenced by Europe’s unique food culture, street markets and small-town cafés — is available at two Austin locations: at the Arboretum & in Bee Cave at the Gateway to Falconhead. All two locations of this family-owned oil boutique offer the try-before-you-buy concept, serving complementary tastes of the freshest Extra Virgin Olive Oils (EVOO) & Aged Traditional Balsamic Vinegars in town.

Owner Tabatha Conarko melded her passion for high quality extra virgin olive oil with her desire to source international gourmet goods to open Austin’s first premium olive oil tasting bar in 2009. As the owner of Con’ Olio Oils & Vinegars, Conarko focuses on offering fresh products, working with authentic producers, and educating guests and the local community.
