About Us

How it all started...


Laura and Phil Wayland are the owners of a retail group of gourmet experience stores throughout the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Laura developed her business skills while building an MLM team through a in home wine tasting company as a stay at home mom. After devoting seven years to her MLM company it folded in 2010. She took the knowledge she gained through her experience and purchased Chip’s wine and beer and subsequently opened Outer Banks Olive Oil in 2013.  Now having just opened their most recent location in Nags Head, NC they are excited to see what's next!

A Unique Gourmet Experience

Our goal is to provide a unique gourmet experience! We have the widest selection of olive oils, balsamic vinegars, wine,  beer, cigars and gourmet foods on the Outer Banks at reasonable prices along with friendly and fun service, which is why we stock more than 2000 wines and over 600 craft beers. Our store’s philosophy stems from a passion for cooking, wine, beer and all things gourmet. We have a passion that we love to share. Whether you know little to nothing about wine, beer or cooking or are a true oenophile or chef you’ll have a blast at our store!

Our staff is the BEST and we are here to make sure that your experience is one that will keep you coming back! Laura and Phil are always happy to meet new folks. Stop on by.

What's Next...

Having just opened our most recent location in Nags Head in 2019, we have added a selection of gourmet chocolates and gourmet coffees to our lineup of wine, beer, cigars and cheeses! We are excited about all the new things we are offering, so please come check us out!
