Gift Certificates


Stymied as to what to give this holiday season?  Oh dear, have you left things ’til the last minute?  Don’t worry, we are here to help.   We would like to suggest one of Marisolio’s gift certificates as the perfect solution to your gift giving needs.  Your loved ones can pick out their own products or merchandise at the shop and get exactly what they need and desire.  Gift certificates are available in any denomination and do not expire.

In particular, consider a gift certificate to be used for one of our cooking classes.  Give the gift that keeps on giving.  The classes provide recipes, cooking instruction and valuable tips that can be used for years to come.  Class fee is $30, and Marisolio typically offers two classes per month, with a variety of themes.

Stop by the shop at 488 Main Street, Murphys, or give us a call at (209) 728-8853 and we can get that gift certificate made out for you.

Shipping and Trucking Delays


Due to a port labor dispute in California, we are experiencing a slow down in the delivery of our 200 ml bottles.   At this point we are only able to fill orders for the 375 ml size bottle.  This shortage is expected to last throughout the holiday season.  We do however, have plenty of our 375 ml bottles on hand to fill your holiday needs.

The 375 ml size is, in fact, the better value of the two sizes.  You get nearly twice the amount of product in the 375 ml bottle, compared to the 200 ml size, and it is not twice the price.

If you order from us online, the only size choice option you will see is the 375 ml size.  We are very sorry for this inconvenience to you.  We hope this situation will be rectified soon and will let you know immediately when our 200 ml size bottles are available again.

Holiday Gift Giving

Marisolio is your Go To Source for gift giving this holiday season.  There are few people who would not appreciate a gift of our outstanding olive oil or balsamic products.  A pairing of a matched oil and balsamic are especially popular for gift giving.  When you shop in the store, we can put together gift bags for you, as shown, or you can place an order and divvy up the products as you choose.  We can ship for free if you order 4 medium bottles (375 ml) or 6 small bottles (200 ml).  Single bottles make lovely stocking stuffers or hostess gifts.

Visit our website at for ideas, or give the shop a call at (209) 728-8853 and our staff will be very happy to give you loads of suggestions as to what your gift options may be.  Best yet, stop by the shop at 488 Main Street, Murphys to taste our products in person.
