My husband and I visited Bella Vista on a rainy Saturday. We went on the 1PM tour. The tour lasted over an hour, which we didn’t expect given the rain, but we enjoyed the experience. The owner gave the tour and was very knowledgeable. The tour was 90% about the world history of olive oil, why growing olive trees in... More

At 15$ a tour it was okay but the history of the first texan olive oil took up most of the visit. An amusing summary of how they got started and what they actually produce. Not really much to see by way of olive trees etc but there again they are just trees in a field. The refinery it self... More

We visited Bella Vista on a recent trip to the Texas Hill Country. Overall, this was outstanding... Fascinating to learn all about the olive oil business, and taste the product, which is all grown and made onsite at the ranch. Overall, prices were very good given the quality of the product. Highly recommended.

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
