We Olive & Wine Bar specializes in small-production, California wines and olive oils and small plates. Owners Deb and Phil Brooks aren’t new to the olive oil business. They opened the We Olive in Belmont Shore in January 2009 and now are happy to have opened the first We Olive & Wine Bars at The OC MIX. It has been a dream of the Brooks family to have a wine bar, so they were delighted when they were asked to not only open an olive oil tasting bar at the MIX, but also a wine bar. Phil is usually behind the bar and ready to assist you with olive oil and wine selections and tasting. The spot in the heart of The OC MIX also has a small outdoor patio if you want to enjoy your tasting al fresco.
They offer complimentary olive oil tasting, American craft beer, wine by the glass and wine flights. They strive to bring you small artisan olive oil producers from California and feature small boutique wines as well. You will enjoy complimentary olive oil and balsamic with your glass of wine or order one of our delicious tapas plate featuring some of their wonderful gourmet foods.
They also have live music on Friday nights, and happy hour is Monday through Friday. We Olive also allows outside food from any of the neighboring OC MIX restaurants. The first Tuesday of each month is their 5-5-5 pairing, where they serve a taste of 5 wines, cheeses, and olive oils.
