Olives and Wine Grapes Thrive at Rio Bravo Ranch

Our climate is a lot like Italy, Greece, and Spain, so olives and wine grapes are a natural fit for the San Joaquin and Central Valleys.

The olive harvest starts in September here and concludes in mid-November. Wine grapes are also harvested in the fall, but you can enjoy California-grown, organic olive oil and wines from a local vineyard year-round when you visit the store at Rio Bravo Ranch at 15701 Hwy 178 in Bakersfield. Their award-winning extra-virgin olive oils and Zinfandel wines will bring exciting tastes to your Mediterranean diet.
