About Full Olive
Full Olive is committed to offering the best possible products from South America.
Full Olive is an ode to Adam's love of Argentina, its food, culture and lifestyle.
Born and raised in Winthrop, a small town in North Central Washington, Adam has always had a taste for adventure. After finishing school in Colorado, he was drawn to the Andes mountains of Argentina.
Adam's first love has always been skiing and wandering the world in search of new slopes. Little did he know that there was so much more waiting to be discovered on his journey to the Andes.
He fell in love with everything Argentina had to offer beyond the slopes and was equally enthralled by their exquisite culture. The people, the wine, the unparalleled food, and the breathtaking landscapes. He decided to make the move to Mendoza permanently.
Here, he met his wife, Myfanwy, and together they decided to start an educational wine tour company. Indulging in carefully crafted Argentinian cuisine and world-class wine became a pivotal point on his life path.
Experiencing Argentina the way he did was so meaningful to Adam that he wanted to share it with others. It’s been almost 15 years since the start of his journey and crafting authentic Argentinian encounters is still his life’s greatest pleasure.
Adam and his family decided to move back to the Pacific Northwest to settle in Seattle, Washington.
It didn’t take long for this “Gringo Mendocino” to decide it was time for North America to have a taste of the finer things in life too. Adam started importing the Argentinian delicacies he missed the most so he could share them with his community.
This is how Full Olive was born. Our intention is to transform an ordinary meal or gathering into the heartfelt, rich, and exceptional essence of authentic Argentinian culture and cuisine.
Through the intimate relationships he shares with Argentinian friends who became lifelong family,
Adam personally knows every supplier. He visits the source of every product Full Olive offers and samples them himself. We have a commitment to hand-picking products of only the highest quality directly from the producer, just the way it’s done in Argentina.
Our hope is that you indulge and savor the first-class flavors of Argentinian delicacies you purchase from us. But, should you ever be unsatisfied with one of our products, please don’t hesitate to reach out and let us know.
We don’t take your business for granted and truly appreciate your feedback since we are a small enough company to adapt quickly to suit your desires. We are also always working to expand our inventory so feel free to let us know what you would like to see next!
We hope you enjoy tasting the experience of Argentina!
