Red Bank, New Jersey – Carter & Cavero, Old World Olive Oil Company, the popular olive oil & balsamic vinegar store in Red Bank, New Jersey which is celebrating its one year anniversary on November 17th, proudly announces the opening of its online store, www.carterandcavero.com. Created by four friends united in their commitment to a retail concept that embraces a tasteful, authentic, healthy way of living, Carter & Cavero offers its customers the unique experience of actually tasting for themselves a rare collection of extra virgin and whole fruit fused oils grown and pressed in special mills all over the world. Along with the olive oils, dispensed out of shiny stainless steel dispensers lined up along sturdy wooden counters, there are a rich variety of aromatic vinegars to complement them. After the customer has chosen their favorite blend by sniffing and tasting, often by dipping a crust of freshly baked bread into the oil, it is poured into a handsome black custom-etched bottle that is capped and sealed on the spot. This guarantees one of the most important qualities of good olive oil—freshness.
To extend the authentic experience of the tasteful and healthy life, Carter & Cavero has surrounded their hand-picked oils and vinegars with an array of Mediterranean lifestyle products, many of which, like the handcrafted pottery by world renowned Spanish artist Tito, are exclusively offered. Since two of the partners – Chris Ortiz and Cesar Cólliga – live in Spain full time, they are able to travel Europe constantly looking for one-of-a-kind treasures to enhance the unique offerings of Carter & Cavero.
Chris Ortiz was raised in the Andalusia region of Spain into a family dedicated to harvesting and pressing olive oil for generations. Cesar Cólliga, a Madrid native, has become one of Spain’s acknowledged experts in the art of olive oil tasting and has taken the lead in choosing the wonderful array of award-winning extra virgin olive oils from Spain, Italy, France, Greece, Australia and the United States. On his visits Cesar conducts wonderfully informative and lively oil tastings for the patrons of Carter & Cavero. The American half of the Carter & Cavero team consists of Chris Wall, a native of New Jersey and the day-to-day face of Carter & Cavero, and Sam Berg, a born and bred New Yorker who has honed his skills in marketing and advertising in top ad agencies in Manhattan. The concept for Carter & Cavero grew out of the partners’ friendship and shared love for Spain. Sam traveled to Cazorla to be best man in Chris Ortiz’s wedding, Chris Wall met Chris and Cesar on family holidays there. The four friends, though very different, are united in their dedication to searching out quality products that surprise the senses and their customers. Their hope is that Carter & Cavero will provide an environment in which their patrons will not only respond to the beauty and taste of their unique offerings, but will also appreciate the dedication, skill and artistry that has gone into their creation.
Most of Carter & Cavero’s products are now available online for purchase and shipping anywhere in the United States. This includes their popular assortment of olive oils and vinegars as well as gourmet foods such as olives, tapenades, gourme salts, jams and crackers. Also availabe on the website are cazuelas (terra cotta dishes from Spain), olive wood bowls, spoons and cutting boards and olive oil skin and hair care products from Durance.
