Texas Hill Country Olive Co.

What do the hills around Dripping Springs have in common with the picturesque landscapes of Tuscany? It turns out both areas are perfect for growing olives. Texas Hill Country Olive says that our hilly, limestone terrain and hot climate are ideal for certain varieties. They’re bottling three types of extra-virgin olive oil, all of which are organic. The Sola Stella (Italian for “Lone Star”) is made with arbequina olives. A beautiful golden color, it has a buttery flavor with some grassy, herbal notes, which makes it a great match with Italian spices as a dipping oil.

They’re currently building a 6,000-square-foot mill house, tasting room and gift shop at the orchard, with plans to open in August. It will house a large Italian press so visitors can see olive oil being made. Currently the oils are sold at Faraday’s Kitchen Store, the gift shop at The Oasis, and at various festivals throughout our area, as well as online. They also have an “Adopt an Olive Tree” program: You adopt a tree and get bottles of oil in return. So can we now look forward to the movie, “Under the Dripping Springs Sun?”
