The Bella Vista Ranch is located in the hill country of Wimberley, Texas. Designed to reflect a traditional Italian family farm, the ranch is home to over 1,200 producing olive trees, seasonal fruit and vegetables, a frantoio (olive press), a winery, tasting room, and gift shop. Yes, we make 100% Texan olive oil!

We sell olive trees of varying size and age for ornamental or home purposes. We sell 1, 3 and 15 gallon olive trees, even a few estate-sized trees; Mission, Arbequina, Luca, Kalamata, Grappalo, and other unique varieties available.
