Corrections & Omissions

By Kelly Mahan Herrick   |   June 20, 2019
Amanda and Sven Dybdahl are the owners of Viva Oliva on Coast Village Road, which they’ve owned since 2017

In the latest Montecito Journal Glossy Edition, which hit stands last week, one of our writers mistakenly mentioned the former owner of local olive oil and food purveyor Viva Oliva. Current owners Amanda and Sven Dybdahl have in fact owned the store since 2017, and in addition to a vast selection of specialty olive oils and vinegars, the couple has chosen a handful of artisan goods from small-batch purveyors to add to their offerings, as well as refreshed the space with a new look and branding. 

The shop, which offers the creation of custom gift baskets, sells artisanal items including Ojai jellies, Jilli Vanilli vanilla products, specialty popcorn from Santa Barbara Popcorn Company, olives from Santa Barbara Olive Company, pickled goods from Pacific Pickle Works, and truffles from Chocolates du CaliBressan, plus many others, as well as beautiful olive wood cutting boards, coasters, and more. The store also offers a selection of cheeses and salamis, as well as home goods including hand towels, cookbooks, and candles. 

We sincerely regret the error. Viva Oliva is located at 1275 Coast Village Road. For more information, visit
