Stopped here with Dee Tours. We were able to try their flavors of oils with fresh bread. To die for. We loved the rosemary and the garlic oils. We wanted to buy every kind but were afraid to fly across the country with them. They do have a set of 3 ounce oil and vinegar that can get through airport... More

I stopped in here 5 years ago because I had business in the area, and within a few weeks had replaced butter/spreads with Rancho Olivos products. Since then, I've been tasting at producers throughout California and in southern France, and tried many other products, yet Rancho Olivos olive oils and balsamic remain competitive with the best of them. The straight... More

Truly a wonderful experience! The olive oils were amazing (unforgettable actually!) and the setting was beautiful with the actual olive trees and beautiful horses all around. The owner was a delight. I am not much of a chef, and certainly no olive oil expert, but she explained how each oil was made and gave me several ideas for using each... More

I'm quite surprised by the comments about the lack of information about olive oil at Rancho Olivos. I go there often and have found the owners/proprietors to be very informative. In fact, they seem to love it when people ask questions. I think it's important to remember that it's a farm stand.....not a class. When I go to a tasting... More

If you expect a visit with some explanation on how olive oil is made and etc., forget about it. The owners of this place are quite friendly, and their olive oil is pretty great, but this is no more than a shop... It was a nice visit, and we tried and bought excelent oil (my favourite is the garlic one,... More

As olive growers, we are always happy to answer any questions about our oil or the process. We are very sorry that Mr. Danilo did not feel that we responded to his questions about the process of making olive oil from olives. Although we do not process the olives on the property, we are more than happy to explain how... More

Who knew olive oil could be so delicious? A must stop when wine tasting in the area! The owners of the olive farm are very knowledgeable and the experience is as eye opening as it is yummy. You get to taste four distinctive oils...each one is better than the next. You can also see horses there! I got home and... More
