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.

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
