Alfonso Gourmet Olive Oil and Balsamics, a store that specializes in fresh olive oil and all natural balsamic vinegars located in St. Philip’s Plaza, is owned by Nancy and Tom Alfonso. The Alfonso’s opened their business after ordering gourmet olive oil and balsamic vinegars multiple times from destinations they had visited while traveling. Their love of the flavors inspired them to give them as gifts which sparked a desire to open a store in Tucson. Tucson has a large number of “foodies” and they saw the potential to share a love of food and an excellent quality product with the Tucson community.
Add some kick to your cooking – and your health – by using herb-infused oils to liven up pasta sauce or enhance a stress-relieving massage.
