Texas Hill Country Olive Company



The Texas Hill Country Olive Company is a family-owned business committed to supplying the highest quality olive oil produced in the United States. The company began in 2009 when John Gambini and his brother-in-law, Rick Mensik, bought 17 acres of land in the picturesque town of Dripping Springs, TX. Since day one the focus has been on preserving the natural beauty of the area while providing fresh locally produced extra virgin olive oil and other premium quality products. The family is proud of the fact they have created the only certified organic orchard in the State of Texas and were first to win medals in competition for their olive oils.

WHAT: The third annual Texas Olive Festival, presented by Texas Hill Country Olive Company, has officially been rescheduled for Saturday, November 14 from noon to 7:00 p.m. The festival will only return as a one-day event featuring a similar lineup of activities and events that were scheduled for the original festival expo.

This November, guests can enjoy live music, exciting chef demos by Central Texas chefs, food and wine tastings from local restaurants and wineries, specialty vendors, kid’s activities, book signings by guest chefs, health and beauty seminars, and educational panel discussions surrounding olives and olive growing.

The individual events that were included as part of the original four-day festival will be scattered through the next few months. Events include orchard tours, cooking classes, movie nights, and more.

The festival was originally scheduled as a four-day event from Thursday, May 28 to Sunday, May 31 and was rescheduled due to safety concerns for the inclement weather forecast, flooding, and potential road closures.

Any tickets purchased for the festival will be honored for the new dates or can be fully refunded. For more information and updates on the lineup, please visit
