We didn't take the tour, we just went to the tasting room and WOW! The amazing "clean" oilve oil is too good to be true! Very knowledgable and friendly staff. They have numerous different olive oils, vinegars and other goodies. You will not be disappointed!

We take our out-of-town guests here to taste the wine and olive oil made right on the premises. Almost like Tuscany. And the man who owns it, an ex-IBMer, does a great job of telling you the history of wine and olive oil making.

We loved Bella Vista Ranch. The staff was super friendly and very knowledgeable about their olive oils, vinegars and wines. Based on her tastings, we purchased a couple of bottles of wines plus a few bottles of vinegars. Even the kids loved it!

We had a great time on the tour and sampling the different types of olive oil and wine. The focus is definitely on the olive oil and the history behind it, and only the last 10 minutes of the tour involved the wine tasting, but...More

Not sure when harvesting takes place but olive oil and balsamic vinegar can be bought at Bella Vista. They even have a sampling of both.

It would depend upon the size of the group. We were only six and our tour was about 1 1/2 hours.
