We were staying close by and stopping in to taste the oils. The blood orange was fantastic! We skipped the wine taste as we were in town for a party and didn't need anymore 🤣

Beautiful grape vines and olive trees. The representative in the tasting room was knowledgeable but not too personable. Olive oils were very good but wines not our favorites

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!

I believe they have a website. My wife orders the jalapeno stuffed olives from them. They are delicious!
