The owner of Bella Vista gave us a fascinating tour and history of his ranch, followed by an informative and delicious olive oil tasting.

We were staying close by and stopping in to taste the oils. The blood orange was fantastic! We skipped the wine taste as we were in town for a party and didn't need anymore 🤣

Beautiful grape vines and olive trees. The representative in the tasting room was knowledgeable but not too personable. Olive oils were very good but wines not our favorites
