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.

Wow, you never knew there was so much that's fascinating behind the olive oil you love. This is a great place to learn all about it first hand.

Beautiful setting and vineyards to see on the patio and you can sample nice wines as well as olive oils and vinegars. Highly recommend stopping on drive from Golden Gate and Muir Wood to Napa.
