After visiting the Olive Oil facility in Dripping Springs this place was a little disappointing. It is much older and there was only one person in the tasting room with only one table for samples. There were two other couples inside when we arrived so the space was a little cramped. We felt as if we were an inconvenience to... More

We have been to Bella Vista a couple of times but not for a couple of years. I am very delinquent in writing this review. But, we bought an olive tree and it has grown like crazy so we often think about the ranch. That being said, our tree is not getting any olives so we plan to go back... More

This was our first tour of this type. Very informative, most of the tour consists of the host talking. Once you get past that and into the orchard it gets better, with the best part of course at the end, the TASTING! Yummy olives, olive oils and of course the WINE!

The olives and extra virgin olive oil were delicious. We enjoyed the wines as well. Definitely worth the drive away from town.

Interesting natural spring. The water was pretty cool. Smaller than expected with no real beach area. Good for teenagers.

Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. We sampled a lot of items they had for sale. The garlic EVOO is wonderful. So is the dipping EVOO. Enjoy!

My husband and I visited Bella Vista Ranch one afternoon on our honeymoon. We weren't sure what to expect from an olive oil tasting, but it was fun, informative, and tasty! We came home with tapenade & jam for gifts, and blueberry wine, balsamic vinegar, and a couple different oils for us. Fresh olive oil is much better than store-bought,... More

We had a day trip here as a group when we stayed at the Blair House Inn for the cooking classes. I never realized Texas was such a big part of the olive oil industry and learned a lot of interesting facts about how they grow the olives and extract the oil. We brought along a basket of food we...

We visited on April 11, which was a cool, cloudy day. The tour started out with an interesting lecture by the owner on the history of growing olives in Texas and elsewhere in the world. This subject might sound a little dull but the owner made it very amusing as he described his own experiences in getting olive trees to... More
