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.

My wife and I visited Oliver Winery on a perfect fall day. Upon arrival, we were greeted with with beautifully landscaped grounds overflowing with flowers set in a backdrop of fall colored leaves. We walked around the grounds and down to the pond, then returned to the main building for wine tasting. We received very personal attention and were thoroughly... More

We visited this winery on a cold, drizzly Indiana Saturday. There was an IU football game in a few hours, so the place was packed. I mean, there were no less than 200 people in this store the entire time we were there. The staff - instead of being panicked and stressed - was in prime service mode! Even the... More

Oliver Winery was a very enjoyable stop. You are first presented with an awesome planting of flowers and shrubs that you will want to use in your home landscaping. The tasting allows eight samples of your choice for about five dollars per person. The wines are very good. The best part of our tastings was the pleasant gentleman who assisted... More

We had some time to kill while our daughter spent an afternoon with a friend at IU and decided to see Oliver Winery. The grounds were beautifully landscaped and all the staff members were very nice. We enjoyed the tour and the wine tasting and would recommend it to anyone.

I'll be honest, I don't drink wine, which may be part of the reason I enjoy this place so much. The landscape is beautiful, there is a nice outdoor seating area (a patio with covered and uncovered seating, as well as picnic areas by the pond), and the interior is charming. You can tour the wine making facility, pick up... More
