We lucked out in that there was a tour available on the day we celebrated a birthday. Walking tour of the olive groves, pressing facilities and grounds (very nice!) and tastings of their olive oils. Must see!

This is a must visit for anyone who loves olives, good wine and beautiful sweeping vistas! We toured the olive "ranch" with Korin on September 3, 2016. Over 500 acres of Northern California beauty. What a remarkable experience. Korin was knowledgeable and informative regarding the history and operation of the ranch, the olive oil making process and of the somewhat... More

We went here as part of an after wedding brunch and the sights were great. You can also sample superb Tuscan olive oils made here. It tends to be windy here often so make sure you wear pants and take a sweater or jacket if it's not summertime as it can be a bit chilly even sitting in the sun

We went here for a Christmas event based on a favorable mention in Sunset mag. Granted it was terrible weather wise, but the activities offered and welcome extended were not weather dependent. There was supposed to be tours and "small bites." The "small bites" were an eighth of a shortbread cookies and a tiny piece of bread to dip olive... More

We started our Napa getaway here at the McEvoy ranch and were delighted that they were willing to accomodate us for a tasting on very short notice. It is definitely worth it to call for a possible appointment as we managed a same day booking! We arrived to this beautiful property which was immediately reminiscent of the Mediterranean--lovely vineyards and... More

Gorgeous location in the hills west of Petaluma. Informative tours (by appt), knowledgeable staff, very tasty olive oil, and lots of purchase options all related to their brand of alive oil.

As a former Olive Farmer in Umbria we are VERY particular about our oil. I love this farm! The oil is wonderful, the environment is extremely well cared for. My one complaint is that even though I live nearby the Ranch I can only buy oil here when they have an event - otherwise must go into San Francisco or... More

I don't drink, and it seems that most of the tourist areas in California are saturated with wine tasting and tours. I wanted the tasting experience, and found this place, McEvoy Ranch. The tour is interesting to be sure, but my favorite parts were the staff, Amy and ? (shoot, I miss my memory!), who were both warm and knowledgeable,... More

We have been to the McEvoy Ranch for a couple visits. In November of 2012 we went down there for their community Olive Oil milling and took 100lbs of olives to get milled for oil. They were quite helpful and very friendly. While we were there I purchased some of their hand lotion and it is great for my dry... More
