First Texas Olive Oil – Tuscan fun in the hill country!

Friday, September 10th, 2010

My friends over at Bella Vista Ranch and First Texas Olive Oil in Wimberley are celebrating their 10th olive harvest this year. Starting October 2 and running through the end of November, they’ll start harvesting olives from 16 different varieties of olive trees. So, if you haven’t heard about this little olive plantation just south of Austin, I’d highly recommend it. They offer tours and have a tasting room and gift shop. You can sample multiple fresh olive oils, jams made from fruit off the ranch, hand crafted wines and other gourmet foods.

Tours every Sat. at 10AM & 1PM, Sundays at 12PM Noon. Harvest & Pressing Starts Oct. 2, 2010.
