Stopped by Oliva on our way home to New Jersey from Lake George/Adirondack Park. We had gotten tips about the winery from people in the region. My wife had checked the tasting room hours on a Google Search, but we should have called or directly checked the website. Unfortunately the winery wasn't open for business, but we met Tony who was sincerely apologetic about not being able to give us a tasting. Once he heard that we were from Jersey, and not local he was even more apologetic. He said they were preparing for a special event and the tasting room wasn't available. I think he was more disappointed than we were. As we said goodbye, Tony raced inside and then back out to our car with a chilled bottle of white wine. He said it was a gift and we should enjoy it after our ride home. We were completely shocked and will return to Oliva to "payback" the gracious gesture. We had the wine with Chinese take-out and it was a perfect way to end our vacation.
