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.

A very good experience. The owner Bill was our host the day of our tasting. We toured the facility and tasted many great wines. They have imported grapes from California and their own vineyard as well. A very impressive facility and beautiful grounds with a nice lake and large local hard wood trees. A must see when in Bloomington, Indiana.

I've visited Oliver since the 80's. It was just a small little tasting room then with a small area for picnics. Now, the grounds are beautiful and expansive and the tasting area is large with a good selection of picnic items. Oh yes, they have wine too. :) The wine is great, some of the best in the state. There... More

We visited Oliver Winery with a group of moms and daughters from IU. It was a gorgeous property and the wine tasting was so fun. The employees were helpful and knowledgeable about the various wines and it made the tasting very informative and educational. We brought a picnic lunch and ate on the deck. It was a lovely day.

When you walk in to the winery you are greeted by the big tasting table surrounded by wines and other things to purchase. I only recall seeing one table in this area. The rest of the tables are outside overlooking the grounds and lake. The workers were very professional and knowledgable about the history and wines, themselves. $5 dollars to... More

We have been here a few times, each season brings a special look to the beautiful grounds at this winery. Our first time was in the fall and the grounds and building were in fall bloom. The next time we returned with family in the winter and it was still beautiful. The wine tasting is always fun with knowledgeable staff... More

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.
