Father-daughter duo John and Cara Gambini started Texas Hill Country Olive Co. in 2008 with the purchase of 17 acres of land and the planting of their first olive trees. Located in quaint and scenic Dripping Springs, Texas, otherwise known as “Texas Hill Country,” this sustainable company is the most awarded olive oil company in the state.
John Gambini had dreamed of owning a vineyard for most of his life. It turned out that the land in Texas was perfect for growing high quality olives, and it shared many characteristics with Italian land, which reminded John of his family heritage. Texas Hill has since expanded to California, and this family-owned company continues to use only the finest local ingredients in both states. Cara and John offer guided tours of the vineyard and curated experiences in their signature olive oil tasting room where they share more of their family history, and education behind their olive oils.
