A must-try for ‘foodies’, Frescolio is Winnipeg’s first specialty store that features a wide selection of gourmet extra-virgin olive oils and vinegars in a tasting-bar setting. Sample more than 60 varieties of extra-virgin olive oil or balsamic vinegar from stainless steel containers (“fustis”). When you’ve made your choice, the product is transferred from the fusti to a bottle and tightly sealed to lock in the flavour and freshness. There are 3 locations to choose from, the one at 2- 929 Corydon Avenue is only 8 minutes from The Arts Residences.
