Robert L. Johnson

Robert L. Johnson

Principal, Oliva Gourmet Oils, Balsamics, & Culinary Gifts

I am Robert “Bugg” Johnson, the proud owner of Oliva. I was born and raised in Nelson County and, after receiving a B.S. Degree in Business Administration from Radford University, I began a career in the Financial Services Industry.

During my travels around the globe, I visited the stunning wine and olive regions of Argentina, California, Chile, and Italy. I was hooked on the food and flavors and knew at some point I wanted to bring these “hobbies” back home one day to the Charlottesville area.

In 2016 I became aware of the former Oil & Vinegar store in Barracks Road being for sale and — fast forward — we closed the transaction in March 2017, rebranded under the Oliva name, and reopened as a locally owned independent small business that employs and supports our friends, family, and neighbors.
