We enjoyed a quick stop here on our drive back to Orange County. The owner was very friendly, olive oil tasting was great (no charge for tasting) and prices were reasonable. Very convenient location right off 154/San Marcos.

This quaint mom-and-pop stand features some impressive olive oils. We purchased a few infused oils that we have become very fond of in our cooking. The owners are very friendly, laid-back and fun to talk to. It doesn't look much when you pull up, but...More

Just a local Mom and Pop place. With great oils, great dogs, and great stories. A very friendly place, with a no-pressure to buy atmosphere, and being in beautiful surroundings does not hurt either. I would recommend a pop in to here whenever you are...More

What a delightful surprise when we found Rancho Olivos. The young girl (sorry I don't know her name) poured us about 6-8 different types of olive oil. She explained how the oil was pressed with the whatever they used to flavor it. The garlic pressed...More

A side trip from all the wine tasting, this little place has some tasty local olive oil. You can do a simple tasting and pick your favorite. Make a tasty gift or souvenir other than wine.

Stopped here while tasting wine. It was great to taste several different olive oils with bread. The dogs on site were friendly. They also had several versions of honey to try also. We ended up buying 3 bottles of oil and some orange blossom honey.

Small town, but worth the visit. Lots of little shops, restaurants and wine tasting venues. Musicians were playing in several parks in the town when we visited.
