Oliver Winery is Indiana’s oldest and largest winery and one of the most modernly equipped wineries east of the Mississippi River. With an award-winning winemaking team and distribution in 18 states, the winery is well-known for producing wines that reflect the flavor and character of the highest quality fruit.

You’ll find an extensive but approachable wine list at the winery’s beautiful Tasting Room on State Road 37. Enjoy a glass of Soft Red — the top-selling wine in the state of Indiana. Or taste an estate-bottled vintage from Oliver’s 54-acre Creekbend Vineyard, a crisp glass of Beanblossom Hard Cider, or a dry Oliver Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, or Riesling.

Oliver Winery also offers special events spaces for personal or corporate celebrations, from rehearsal dinners to holiday receptions.

Tasting Room Summer Hours: Monday-Friday 10 am-6 pm; Saturday 10 am-8 pm; Sunday 12 pm-6 pm. Production tours available Friday-Sunday. Please call for details or group visit information.

I was able to stop by one time driving through myself. I enjoy our regional wine areas in Indiana. Not as large or as many selections as a huge California vineyard, but still great options and great prices. I would recommend a stop for anyone 21 and older.

I love that the staff everywhere you meet, are so upbeat and excited about show, tell and tasting, even though they've done it hundreds of times! Beautiful place and just so happens to be the home of my favorite wine <3

generously priced for a number of wine tastings, this is a fun and high energy bloomington wine destination. Good servers lead you through a self selected list of their wines. Tours available. Bring a picnic basket, buy a bottle of wine, and enjoy the outdoor ambiance... tall trees, terraced decks, small parkland and a large pond with coin fish and... More

We visited with several of my daughters sorority sisters and their moms. We did the $5 wine tasting, which is very reasonable since you get to try 8 wines. Our guide was helpful, informative and interesting. Afterward, we had a picnic package for the group with a reserved table. The view was awesome and the setting was perfect. We enjoyed... More

We came here with 7 other friends to celebrate a birthday. We found tables outside on the lower deck, scooted chairs around and ended up having enough space for all of us, and a gift/dessert table. It was near 70 degrees outside which made it perfect for sitting outside on the deck here at Oliver. The scenery can't be beat.... More

If you love wine this is the place to go. For $5 you can taste 6 different wonderful wines. You can also buy a bottle (1 for 2 people) and they'll give you glasses and open the wine to enjoy outside in a beautifully landscaped area with seating. Some accoutrements can be purchased to go along with your wine. This... More

I hear that the I-69 project is going to take out the winery. If that is true, it is a shame. Love this place. I remember when it was built. Great scenery, a good brand and an awesome little lake. be sure to feed the fish.

Hello! My name is Stacey and I am the Hospitality Director for Oliver. I am happy to inform you that the I69 project will have no negative effect on the winery. The current north bound lane of 37 will become a frontage road for the winery. The exit from I69 to access that road will be just south of the... More
