(map) Is it a tapas-and-wine bar that sells gourmet olive oils? Or the other way around? Ponder that question while you enjoy a glass of wine and some of the gourmet goodies here. We Olive just opened with a big party in the Hill Country Galleria. While we mingled, we sampled many (okay, all) of the EVOO olive oils and balsamic vinegars. From garlic to lemon to blood orange oils, from aged balsamic to pineapple to fig balsamic vinegars, there is something for everyone. But it’s not just a store; it’s a cafe and wine bar as well. With live music, even!

Oils and vinegars line the wall, with little cups for tasting and bottles if you’re ready to take one home. Some of the flavors can surprise you. Hint: mix a little jalapeno olive oil with pineapple balsamic for a fruity, spicy kick.

The cafe offers a variety of small plates, like panini, flatbreads and salads. There’s even an Amy’s ice cream made with olive oil! Above, part of the charcuterie plate, with cheeses and hand-made salumi. On the right, three types of hummus made with different oils. Our fave: the We Olive signature hummus made with black olive tapenade and blood orange olive oil. Below, the smoked albacore melt, a creamy albacore spread on toasts, drizzled with peach balsamic vinegar.

A huge range of gourmet goodies is on display, from local honeys to California olives and tapenades. There are also many accessories to show off all things olive.

The bar features a cuvee wine dispenser to preserve the freshness of the wines, both California and Texas. Below, owner Brad demonstrates to Miso Hungry’s Jennie Chen his tasting technique. His surprised look may be because of her fancy Google Glass!
