Fun and informative tour

It was a beautiful Valentine's Day in Wimberley for the tour at Bella Vista Ranch. Plan on at least 2-3 hours for the lecture, tour and tastings.

I did not know anyone in Texas grew olives and made olive oil. My husband and I have been to Italy and Greece and visited olive growers and tasted their wares. This was our first time trying out a local and we were not disappointed. The young lady that assisted us for our tastings was very knowledgable and informative. We... More

This was the first of four stops on our winery tour. We arrived and were informed the olive oil tour was almost over, but she opened the door to the press room and allowed us to join the last 10 minutes of it. Shortly thereafter we were given a sample of their olive oil to drink. I have to admit,... More

I love going to Bella Vista. It is lovely there and you can take a tour when scheduled. It is a working olive ranch and vineyard. They sell awesome olive oil and balsamic vinegar plus wine, olives and a few other products. It is off the beaten path and may not be especially interesting to young children.

The ranch was beautiful but it stopped there. We did the tasting but the owner was in a hurry to lead a separate tour. Not very friendly.

GPS location is off for this winery. Keep going just a little down the road and you will see their large sign. Great tasting room with free olive oil and jam tastings. Wine tasting is available (4 wines for $7 or all 7 wines for $10). You can also do a tour of the grounds and a tasting for $15.... More

Spent a couple of hours there for the tour and tastings!! I would highly recommend visiting and learning more about olive oil. It's not just for dipping bread in it!!!

Really enjoyed the tour and learning all about olive oil! Couldn't believe all of the interesting information and how much we don't know about what we buy in the stores. Make sure you don't have a time limit or another appointment close after the tour time. We were there about 2hrs 15 minutes and could have stayed a little longer... More

I have never been to an olive oil tasting, but did indeed enjoy learning about the process and what to expect in a quality oil. Thanks for this opportunity right in the middle of our great state. Although a bit pricey, I did leave with a couple of bottles of oil (love that peppery taste) and a bottle of wine.... More
