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

Any time of year is a beautiful time to visit Oliver Winery. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, and the inside is welcoming. You can taste wines, take a tour, whatever you like. There is a pond you can sit by and enjoy snacks and wine. Truly relaxing.

We enjoyed the large tiered outdoor seating areas where you could take a glass of wine or bottle purchased inside to enjoy outside. The wine was good - they do have a variety to select from - and we added chips and hummus we had in the car for a late afternoon snack in a beautiful setting. Although the winery... More

This was interesting, fun, and surprising. We did a tasting, took the tour, and shipped several bottles of wine home.

I don't drink wine hardly at all. But the grounds and the facilities are well worth a visit anyway. The wine tasting that I did do was nice and the man helping us was very patient with this non-drinker as I stumbled my way through the tasting. Grab a bottle, some bread and cheese and head outside to enjoy southern... More

This is a must see even if you are not wine drinkers. The grounds are just beautiful and you can buy your wine and sit outside and eat cheese and crackers and drink wine. They have tons of seating and a huge pond. It is so peaceful and a great place to read a book. Loved the wine tasting and... More

Was not looking forward to coming here as I'm not much of a wine drinker but the rest of my party all wanted to stop and I must admit I was impressed as soon as we walked up to building, the front entrance was beautiful with all the big stones and plants and fountain, being a Monday afternoon it was...

We met some friends here to spend an afternoon at this winery. We had not been to a winery before so we were interested to see what it was like. Our friends were quite accustomed to this experience, so they lead us through the process. Our group started in an open outdoor porch and picnic area. We tried three different... More

Indiana winery's excel at sweet and semi-sweet wines. Oliver is no exception. Where they excel is in the beautiful grounds and vineyard just north of Bloomington Indiana, The main road , State Road 37 is under construction but we had no trouble getting in or out on a busy Friday afternoon. A tasting fee may be charged but may also... More

At Oliver Winery, you can participate in a tasting for $5. You can choose up to eight different wines. This is a lot cheaper than other wineries in the area! However their "tour" of the winery wasn't much of a tour. Our tour guide led us to the back and we watched a video and then listened to him discuss... More
