Although I don't do much cooking (Ok , rarely), stopped here with some friends, one of whom Desperately Needed olive oil. Met by the official "greeters'- 4 dogs and 1 cat, and oh yeah, their human dude. The olive oils were very clean tasting, and the flavored ones were delish. Had one Balsalmic blend from Italy which was very very... More

While enjoying the countryside and wineries throughout the region, one winery mentioned we should check out Rancho Olivos. We stopped in and were greeted by the dogs, wagging and just happy to see you. We tasted several olive oils and bought the Meyer Lemon. That was a few years ago and now we stop and buy the big bottle every... More

We stopped at Rancho Olivos after a wine tasting and enjoyed our oil tasting! We bought the rosemary & garlic oil, but wanted to take home one of everything. They also have honey but we took a pass on that. The balsamic vinegar was so smooth. If we went back tomorrow I would probably buy a case! It's worth the... More

Thank you so much for your review. My apologies if our tasting gal was too low-key (there had been a personal issue this week). I am glad you enjoyed the oils. I appreciate the feedback and hope if you get a chance to visit us again the experience will be much improved. More

John let us taste 6 different versions of his olive oil and his special blend balsamic. The olive oil is fantastic but the balsamic is the best we ever had. If you like olive oil this is a must visit.

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
