About Us

In 2006 we founded ZFolio, our first retail location in Solvang, a Danish community north of Santa Barbara, featuring contemporary designer jewelry, art glass and Michael’s nature photography. In 2009 we launched our second gallery on Cannery Row in Monterey. Remarkably, in 2013 and 2014, ZFolio was voted Top Retailer of Designer Jewelry in the United States by the JCK Design Center community. In July of 2017 we expanded our passion for quality with the Solvang Olive Press, featuring an international collection of Extra Virgin Olive Oils that maintain the highest standards in the world, and Balsamic Vinegars from Modena, Italy. As you walk in the door, faces light up like children walking in Disneyland. We offer purity, flavor, optimum health and unsurpassed quality. Who can ask for anything more?

So popular is the Solvang Olive Press, that we expanded this tasting-experience by creating Solvang Flavors, where we craft Artisanal Organic Gelato, French Crêpes, feature a healthy California Lite Café, an international selection of Clean Wines, locally made, hand crafted artisanal chocolates, and a sweet and savory tasting boutique - all in one.

Our passion is to introduce, surprise and delight each visitor with amazing Flavors that are natural, wholesome and nutritious, as free as possible from chemicals and artificial ingredients, with each serving prepared as if our children’s lives depend on it. Because they do.
