I arrived early for my scheduled tour, so I ordered from the cafe. Delicious ‘adult’ grilled cheese and tomato soup! Yes, cheese on the outside-Yummy! The tour was so interesting and educational. I thought the gift shop had the right amount of merchandise available to purchase. All the staff members were super helpful, pleasant and engaged in conversation with this Ohio gal. I purchased many items and they were delighted to ship it home for me.

The owner, John Gambini, spent 10 minutes with us. He shared his knowledge and expertise as well as his vision for the olive oil industry in Texas. After visiting with him we enjoyed some gelato and bought a couple of bottles of his excellent olive oils.

This was a fantastic experience. One the founding owners gave us a tour and he was very knowledgeable and friendly. We learned a lot about how olives are grown, harvested - and consumed! The tour was comprised of a trip to the olive orchard, as well as the manufacturing plant where they process the olives. They also have a good selection of olive oils and vinaigrette's for sampling, and for purchase. Overall a fun, informative and tasty experience which I would highly recommend to anyone looking for something to do near Austin, Texas.
