A Taste for Life is a family-owned company that specializes in gourmet foods imported from Spain. I visited Spain for the first time in 1997 and fell in love with it's warmth, it's traditions and Spain's focus on family. Some years later, my wife and I started importing extra virgin olive oil from Spain and selling it at local farmer's markets around Charlotte and Waxhaw, North Carolina. The positive response we received encouraged us to expand our imports to include vinegar and then, cheese. It was not long before we realized that the demand for our products had outgrown the seasonality of the farmer's markets. In 2009, we opened our place at the Carolina Place Mall in Pineville, North Carolina that currently serves a wide array of customers seven days a week.
One thing to remember about my company is I hand pick all of these world class products. If it is not excellent, we will not sell it. This is why it will take us some time to build up more variety on our website.
The launch of this wholesale and retail web site is the next phase of our business allowing us to expand the flavors of Spain to a wider market. As our business grows, we will remain committed to offering the highest-quality gourmet foods from Spain. As you can see, our website is dedicated to offering the finest gourmet foods from Spain. Through our foods, you will discover a renewed taste for life of your own.
Finally, I want to thank 3 people for their direct help or just inspiring me to pursue living life more fully. Living life more fully for me is being with my family and owning my own business. I did not want to work for someone else anymore. I want to thank my wife, Tony Robbins and Marcel Riscal. I hope I can inspire all of my customers to do something they love someday!
Thank you for all of your support!
Kevin, Mirian, Brendan and little Julia
