Meet Kim & Derek Shaw, co-owners of The Olive & Vine. Kim’s background is in photography and documentary film while Derek left an archaeology career to embark on a new business adventure in the specialty food market. Both have a lifelong love of food, drink and international travel and have found a way to mingle their passion with their business. According to Kim, “The Olive & Vine is more than a job for us. Food has always meant family, friends and love in our home and the shop is really an extension of our home, it’s a look into our pantry, our lives. We use these products and enjoy sourcing new items and sharing them with our customers. This is who we are.”
If you stop into their shop in Portland OR you can taste many of the items they sell. At the shop there are tasting bars featuring their oils, vinegars and salts available for you to sample at any time and be on the look out for special tasting events that happen throughout the year!
When not at the shop or doing shop related things, you can find Derek and Kim sailing, cooking, gardening, exploring and snuggling with their French Bulldog Elliott.
