One of the few Indiana Wineries that really embraces both dry and sweet wines. I've drank wine all over the world and visited wineries in Michigan, Napa and Italy and I would put Oliver reds up against them any day. My favorite is the 2011 Chambourcin. Supplies are limited so stock up soon.

My wife & I live a couple of hours away from Oliver and have been here more than a handful of times. Recently Oliver is now charging about $5 per person to taste. It's worth it. Our last visit was great fun. Derek was engaging and knowledgeable. We are not wine connoisseurs - the folks at Oliver always make us... More

My fiancé works at a winery & Oliver winery has the best deal by far. If you work at a winery or vineyard, just let them know & show a business card. They will give you a free wine tasting & 30% off any wine you purchase. This is the best industry discount we have found. They have a nice... More

This is a great place to take visitors or even just have a picnic. Children are also allowed there, and it can be a fun place to pick out a pumpkin, which they also sell in the fall. There's now a charge for the wine sampling, but it's still fairly little and probably helps reduce the crowds by staving off... More

The grounds are beautiful to stroll and picnic for lunch or dinner. The tasting room is nice, but to small. Browsing is nice while you wait for an opening at the tasting bar. Tours of the facility are given on the weekends. Events are offered year round, some are free. Oh, the wine- it's award winning good.

This is a wine tasting room although they occasionally serve full meals. The facility is fun, the tours are informative, the service is very good with well-informed guides. And, of course, a very full range of wines to offer for sale. Shipping is avaliable.

We visit Oliver frequently and can't say enough positive things about the place. They are always friendly and professional. They go above and beyond on service and to top it off they have great wine. We love to do a tasting and then buy a bottle, some brie and a baguette to enjoy in the gardens or under the heaters... More

Oliver Winery is in a class by itself. The wine is outstanding, tasting guides very well informed, with a setting that matches the beauty of the wine. The gardens are lovely even on a rainy blustery day.
