About Us

Dos Colinas derives its name from Spanish meaning two hills, Austin and Erika Hills, our two sons, Austin and Justin, as well as the two hills on which the olives are grown. In 1998, we fell in love with and purchased an old olive grove that had been planted in the 1890's. The five acre Frantoio olive orchard had been abandoned for many years until we took over management of it. Cuttings were taken from the old trees in order to replant missing trees, and the orchard will reach full production by 2009.
