It has been a while since we took the tour. That was fun and we learned a lot. We especially enjoyed learning about the olives and olive oil. The tasting was also fun. As a result of our first trip we have started using their balsamic vinegar every day. We have gone back to Bella Vista to purchase and even... More

Did the olive oil-wine tour/tasting. The tour lasted about 1-1/2 hours. It was very informative. They spent 1-1/2 hours on olives and olive oil and 5 minutes on tasting the wine. Obviously their interest is olive oil not wine. The wine wasn't bad. The olive oil is great.

We booked this because we wanted a wine tasting, and it was clear from the start that Olive Oil is clearly the owner's primary passion. By the time it was over I was more interested in olives and olive oil than I ever expected to be. The best part was, once the wine did get opened, a couple of their... More

We came for the tour and tasting. The tour was a bit long winded, and started outside at noon making it an endeavor for anyone not prepared for the heat. The wine tasting was also a bit rushed as the owner seemed to care a LOT more about the olives than the wine. However, said olives more than made up... More

The gentleman who did our olive oil tasting was awesome. We got a great explanation and enjoy the tasting - I brought back 4 bottles and really enjoyed the blood orange infused olive oil The grounds are beautiful with both the olive trees and grape vines. I highly recommend stopping by when you are in the neighborhood - great Texas... More

We sampled the wines and I have to say the Texas Sunset Red and Sunrise Rose were excellent. The cab franc really came through on their Texas Sunset even though it was a smaller percentage of the blend. The Sunset was lighter and the smokey notes lingered a good while. Was I drinking a Loire valley red I wondered? The... More

We didn't do the tour, we just went into the tasting room. We tasted various olive oils, basalmic vinegars, and olives. Everything was just delicious! The staff is super friendly. Really enjoyable outing.

We didn't do the tour but caught up with the group in the tasting room. Educational and interesting presentation of oils, the "oil guy" is quite a character. Didn't expect the wine tasting or the quality of the wines, which were quite good. Most olive oil is imported so this place is one of a kind and definitely worth a... More

They grow and press olive oil and a little wine. The owners were very helpful, took us out to the olive tree grove to take pics. We liked their estate olive oil, and bought a bottle. They sell 6 varieties of wine. We tasted them, like them, and bought 2 varieties. Nice place to go.
