They have a 12 year aged Balsamic that is so good. Really tastes as if it were aged longer. The lady that waited on us was very helpful. She understood what we were looking for and offered tastes of just the right ones. Check out the back area. It is beautiful.

I really enjoy visiting The Olive Press. They offer superior olive oil and balsamic vinagers with free tastings. The store sells delightful knickknacks involving olives; it is fun to shop there. I have a good tip for you; if you bring back an empty clean bottle they will refill it with bulk olive oil at half price. Every February they... More

Honestly could NOT taste every olive oil on display! And it was great to be able to do so many side-by-side tastings... All are for sale and if you take your own bottle you can get a discount on the price. You can also get a lot of help and useful pointers - great place to buy gifts too!

90% gift shop. Big tourist stop on the main road into the Sonoma Valley. Giimmicky and kitschy wares and the olive oil is medicore at best. When the parking lot is usually full of big tour buses, you know that they specialize in bulk entertainment.

My second visit to the Olive Press. I asked our fabulous tour guide Gary from tours by locals to take us there specifically. This second visit did not disappoint. We love their lotions and soaps and dips. We got to sample a few grapes as they were finishing up their harvest. What a phenomenal treat!!!

A great place to try a variety of olive oils with bite size pieces of bread. They sell regular size bottles and travel size. The champagne olive oil was a big hit. Sign up for email to get free shipping offers.

Enjoyed this more than the wine tasting. Unfortunately there was an event when we were there so we couldn't tour the grounds, which did appear beautiful. Next time would love to do so. One of our party had done this previously and gave rave reviews. Staff pleasant and knowledgeable. Next time it will be a must do tour. Definitely recommend... More

Very interesting and informative tour. We learned you get 6 times the liquid from a 1,000 pounds of grapes versus 1,000 pounds of olives. If/after you finish the olive oil tastings, there is also a 5 flight complimentary wine tasting available on the other side of the lobby.
