We Olive & Wine Bar, a California-based wine bar and retail store concept, has opened a store at the Hill County Galleria in Bee Cave, the first outside the Golden State.

In addition to a wine bar that serves a small bites menu that incorporates some of the artisan products available in the shop, the store offers dozens of varieties of olive oils that customers can sample before buying. We Olive will offer educational classes and guided tastings throughout the year, and to kick things off, they’ll host grand opening activities on July 18-20 that will include a class with Carol Firenze, author of “The Passionate Olive: 101 Things to do with Olive Oil,” at 1 p.m. July 20.

The other special guests include Astrid Jansen of Foxdale Farm, Louie Gonzalez of Rancho El Molino, and Nena Talcott and Bonnie Storm, growers and producers of Grove 45, an organically farmed extra virgin olive oil from Napa Valley. You can reserve a space at one of these free demonstrations or tastings by emailing info.austin@weolive.com or calling 512-382-6517.
