Virgin Territory

After lunch, I skipped the gelato and headed straight for the tasting counter in the retail area, where I sampled Queen Creek Olive Mill's different flavored olive oils (everything from garlic- to blood orange-infused oil), nibbled on crackers spooned with peach caponatina, and gobbled up all kinds of olives. I especially liked the Maytag blue cheese and the mesquite-smoked almond-stuffed olives, and am already plotting a martini party. You can sample pretty much anything in their product line, then fill your shopping basket with goodies.
