“Olive oil like I've never tasted before!”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

Lucero Olive Oil has an olive oil mill, tasting room, and store about a mile away from the Olive Pit, and for my money, it's a much more interesting place. You can take a tour of the mill, but by February all the milling has been done. Still, you learn the process that separates the oil from the olives, and you get to taste the fruits of that labor. We slurped on a dozen different olive oils of different blends and flavors, then moved on to balsamic vinegars, mustards, tapenades, and believe it or not, olives.

The tasting room/store can accommodate groups. It is spacious, clean, and inviting. Pitchers of water and cups are available for thirsty guests and those of us who ingest something a little too spicy! There is not a wide selection of olives, but what is offered is very good. The staff is very helpful. You won't find any cheeseburgers here, but you will come away with something to make your next meal special.
