Peaceful country setting on the Olivas de Oro olive orchard with neighboring vineyards and wine tasting. Rancho Olivas de Oro is a working olive ranch with 160 acres of century old olive trees. We also raise Katahdin sheep to graze on the grass and prune the lower branches on the olive trees. Lambs are born April through August.
Enjoy the peace and quiet of the country with the benefits of being close to other activities. We are centrally located, just 15 miles to the downtown areas of Paso Robles, Templeton and Atascadero, 38 miles to Cambria and Hearst Castle, and 29 miles to San Luis Obispo. You've got lots of choices! Take the day to tour the many wineries in the area, take a scenic drive to the coast and Hearst Castle, or visit San Luis Obispo for a day of shopping in the boutiques. We are located on The Creston Winery Trail and are part of The Backroads Wineries. Gourmet meals await in downtown Paso Robles or make your own in our well-appointed full kitchen and outdoor gas BBQ.
Our guests spend much of their time outside in the sunken patio surrounded by our century old olive trees with views of the orchard. It's the perfect place to have your meals, morning coffee, and evening wine under the stars by the fireplace. With a porch in the front of the house and one in the back you can choose your view of olive trees or the vineyard. Stretch your legs and explore the 160 acres of olive trees or stop by our tasting room to try some or our olive oils, olives, vinegars, dirty martini juice, and ranch goodies. No worries, the tasting room is not by the house so you won’t be inconvenienced by other visitors.
