Our Neighborhood

We Olive Reno is now open! Owner, Alysia Peters shares her favorite things about life in Reno and gives the inside scoop on what to do, eat and drink in her hometown.

We Olive & Wine Bar fits perfectly with the vibe of renowned chefs, boutique coffee shops and quaint neighborhood bars in the Reno-Tahoe area. Being surrounded by great shopping doesn’t hurt either.  The area is known for it’s abundance of recreational options, including festivals, concerts, outdoor activities and sporting events. Visitors quickly find out how healthy and alive Reno-Tahoe is. We Olive & Wine Bar’s olive oils and wine cater to the region’s health conscious locals and visitors.

The best part about Reno-Tahoe is that there are a million different ways to spend a day. For adventure seekers, exploring the Sierra Nevada Mountains on hiking boots or skis is a must before winding down with a nice glass of wine. For days where retail-therapy is top of mind, there are dozens of shops surrounding We Olive & Wine Bar Reno to explore before stopping in for an olive oil tasting.

What to eat…

Reno is quickly becoming a food-lovers paradise with new locally-owned restaurants popping up regularly. So, great food options are never in short supply!  One of my favorites is Great Full Gardens Café & Eatery in Midtown. Their liege benedict and fresh-squeezed orange juice mimosa make for a delightful breakfast.

What to drink…

Reno has a wide variety of small taverns and bars, many of which use locally sourced ingredients to create fantastic specialty cocktails. Reno is also well-known for its great craft beer breweries and culture. However, I know that We Olive & Wine Bar Reno will be a new local’s favorite. But as for me, I find it most pleasurable to share a good bottle of wine with friends in front of the fireplace at my home.

What to do…

The Reno-Tahoe area must-see attractions contain high desert and alpine wonders. Lake Tahoe is renowned for being the nation’s largest alpine lake, but locals love the crystal blue waters for swimming, fishing, kayaking, paddleboarding and more. But the giant blue lake isn’t the only attraction in the area. The Truckee River is ideal for kayakers and floating. Pyramid Lake is an atypical body of water on Native American land surrounded by desert hills and phenomenal rock formations. Aside from the local wonders of nature, the area is also dotted with rich history from the Pony Express trail, historic casinos, and ghost towns, just to name a few.
