A visit to St. Simons Island is not complete without a visit to one of its hidden gems: Golden Isles Olive Oil Gourmet Market & Wine Bar. Offering a restaurant, store with delicious handmade goods, and a beautiful space for community gatherings and special events, this business is well worth a visit for locals and tourists alike.
Golden Isles Olive Oil is located at 306 Redfern Village on St. Simons Island. Make sure to check out its wine bar offering more than 80 selections from across the globe. While drinking a glass of wine, enjoy an artisan cheese board decorated with Georgia pecans, fresh fruit, and house-made crostini. The Wine Bar is open Mondays – Saturdays from 11 a.m. – 9 p.m. and on Sundays from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.
After a glass of wine, peruse the Gourmet Market which offers premium extra virgin olive oils from Europe (Italy, Spain, Greece, and Portugal), South America (Chile, Argentina), and Australia. You can also select from handmade pasta, jams, salts, olives, sweets, and more. If you are just visiting and cannot get enough of the products, then you can sign up for subscription baskets so that Golden Isles Olive Oil can deliver select products to your door each month.
Golden Isles Olive Oil also aims to be a place for community building around food. The business features monthly events including “pop-up” lunches with guest chefs creating custom menus using select olive oil products. There are also regular cookbook club meetups for exchanging cookbooks and recipes, health and wellness sessions, and cooking classes. Check out their list of events.
Finally, if you are looking to host an event, Golden Isles Olive Oil is able to host everything from bridal showers to rehearsal dinners.
