Established in January, 2000, RANCHO MARISOL fulfilled a dream of owner Mary Lou Schuster, retired Spanish teacher. The vision of owning an organic olive orchard was just the beginning. The 43 acre Rancho Marisol, in Copperopolis, California, boasts nearly 4,000 olive trees producing oil from four distinct olive varietals: Leccino and Frantoio, (Tuscan olives from northern Italy), Arbequina (Spanish olives), and Kalamata ( a popular Greek varietal).

Mary Lou began distributing her oil throughout Calaveras and Tuolumne counties and set up demonstration tables in local markets. Her high quality oils, Arbequina, Kalamata and Los Padres- a blend of Frantoio and Lecciono- became immediate customer favorites. In Spanish, los padres means "the parents" and it is this name she dedicated- in memory of her parents- the label of her first oil blend.

Spurred by her love of all things olive, came the idea of a retail olive oil store- thus, the genesis of Marisolio Tasting Bar, located on Main Street, Murphys, CA. The store features the freshest oil available from around the world. In Addition, the tasting bar has close to 25 unique and flavorful Balsamic and Wine Vinegars. Everything else in the store is olive too!

  • Dont miss Marisolio olive oil & balsamic vinegar tasting. Since covid, there might be a fee for tastings. Splurge a little! We love this place. We never miss it & The Spice Box.  more »
  • The first time I came here was six or seven years ago, and just loved it, with each product seeming to taste even better than the last. Since that first visit I've purchased from them many times...  more »
  • Take the time to visit. Their Olive Oils and Balsamic Vinegars are insanely good. A favorite of mine is their 18 Year aged Balsamic. Every trip here includes at least one bottle. At that, a new one, Gravenstien Apple Balsamic is amazing. Try it out. Honestly, we have done business with them since they opened in Murphy's. One of my favorite locations in town.
  • We always go their to try out the new balsamic and olive oils. Our favorite olive oil is the Tuscan Olive Oil which we have been using for over 15 years.
