Located in the heart of historic Capitol Hill, Sapore Oil & Vinegar is Washington DCís first purveyor of fresh, premium extra virgin olive oils and balsamic vinegars.

Our mission is to provide the best tasting, freshest and highest quality oils and vinegars which we encourage our customers to sample before they buy.

After tasting pure olive oil, fresh from a first pressing, youíll never again buy a flavorless, flat supermarket brand. Our oils take your taste buds to an entirely new level, especially when we add whole fresh lemons, fresh basil leaves, and more.

White and dark balsamic vinegars, already smoother and less acidic than wine vinegars, delight when fresh berries or ripe figs are infused into the flavor. Authentic balsamic vinegar, aged carefully for up to 25 years, is a perfectly luscious condiment onto itself!

Our gracious staff, experts in both our products and in cooking, will help you select the perfect culinary product and will inform you about the amazing health benefits of extra virgin olive oil. Youíll love the casual, chic ambiance of the Tasting Room which creates a welcoming environment to taste and learn at your leisure.

We also offer fine gourmet foods including flavored fettuccine, gluten free pastas, organic and imported pastas, sea salts from around the world, unique jams, tapenades, mustards, and spices.

From the most passionate foodie to the more hesitant cook, Sapore Oil & Vinegar offers a lively range of items to taste, savor and enjoy. Taste a new perspective!  

Serving the Metro DC area, including Virginia and Maryland.
