Texas Hill Country Olive Company is an incredible restaurant and gift shop located on a high terrace along a long a winding road outside Dripping Springs. The short travel is worth the effort. My family and I explored an educational journey through a flight of four different olive oils bottled on the premises. DELICIOUS! Before this excursion, we didn't realize the distinct differences between different oils. We also enjoyed a variety of olives and wonderful artisan bread as we snacked during our mid-afternoon tour. The staff was so friendly and informational. They took their time explaining the nuances of this olive orchard and mill. The best thing is that we were able to bring home some delicious olive oil to enjoy and remember our charming experience.

The orchard is an easy 30 minute or so drive from downtown Austin. We missed the tours but purchased a picnic lunch that was excellent and we dined in the orchard underneath a huge oak tree with a picnic table. Even on the 90+ degree day we were there the shade and breeze kept us cool as we enjoyed the beautiful scenery and lunch. The trees unfortunately were killed during the February 2021 Winter storm. We were told they have another orchard and will be able to continue processing olive oil until the Dripping Springs orchard gets up and running again. Numerous types of both olive oil and balsamic vinegar available for purchase and we definitely blew our budget as so many great ones to choose from

I love this place! Such a beautiful location and such wonderful products. It's great to take the tour and see how olive oil is made. The little Cafe has delicious food and yummy ice cream - balsamic ice cream, TRY IT!!
The olive oil is the best!

We sent an email to request tour reservations, but received no reply. Because of that we just went in person about 30 minutes ahead of time to inquire in person. Unfortunately the tour was canceled because of new equipment installation. We walked around the gift shop and looked out over the trees. I think it would have been fun, but we were only in town for that afternoon. Several other events at other venues were clearly listed on their website as closed because of the pandemic or other situations. It would have been nice to have a heads up.

The staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable with their products.The store had wonderful gifts. There were some many oils to choose from, just ask and they will direct you in the right way. We had a glass of their homemade wine after exploring the store. We met John Gambini on his way out and had a wonderful conversation about the start of his adventure.

This is a wonderful experience. The property and the building are pretty and welcoming. Unfortunately, the cold snap in February had a negative effect on the olive trees so they weren't green while we visited. We missed the tour so we walked through the orchard on our own. It was very peaceful and scenic.
Prior to our arrival, I had read some revues of this place. Everyone raved about the grilled cheese, like REALLY raved. We decided to have lunch and our choice was simple, grilled cheese, tomato soup and a light salad with their own vinaigrette dressing. I will be talking about this lunch for a long time. It was one of the best meals I have ever eaten - homemade bread, gooey cheese, tomato soup with a fennel flavor , and a delicious little salad.

Service was very pleasant; all the staff was happy to answer questions about the place and the products.

The gift shop is definitely worth your time, too.

As we were leaving , a young woman was hysterically crying about her small dog. We went to help her and discovered she had accidentally stepped on him and spilled her cup of wine. I went back inside to get her water and napkins. They refused to let me pay for either! Now, that is customer service.

We really enjoyed our stop here. They make very high quality oils and other oil products from their own olives. Their premiums oils are first cold pressed. The products are pricey. Their store has a wide variety of excellent goods. The staff was very helpful. On one side of their building is a small café that serves lunch and snacks. We had a charcuterie that was plenty for two. All the items on the board were delicious. We also had an olive oil and fruit gelato that was very nice. They also offer a variety of sandwiches and salads. I highly recommend a visit here and investing in some of their excellent offerings.

We like to stop and have lunch here and get some Texas olive oil. Small place but nice lunch items. They had to replace all their trees after the big freeze so the trees are small and they are just getting back to tours of the olive grove and production. It is just a quick stop but worth it.

We made a stop at TX Hill Country Olive Co during a mid-week day date. The olive farm offers tours of the grove and their pressing facilities. We walked the grove and took pics of the different types of olives; then we enjoyed a nice light lunch on site, and took home a few products from their shop. We’ve been here before, and will be back again.

We were very excited to visit this Olive Ranch to taste and purchase some Texas Olive Oil. The service was non-existent and what reminded us of California driving up, became a major disappointment. We drove 45 minutes and left with nothing. Too bad, it seemed well planned out, but upon entering the building....major letdown.
