Oliver Winery started in the 1960s as a hobby in the basement of Indiana University law professor William Oliver. His enthusiasm for making wine led him to establish a vineyard northwest of Bloomington. Soon the flourishing vines produced grapes far in excess of his needs as a hobby winemaker, and he began plans to open a commercial winery. Professor Oliver was instrumental in passing legislation allowing for the creation of small wineries in Indiana. The Indiana Small Winery Act passed in 1971 and Oliver Winery opened to the public in 1972. Initially, sales were modest but grew quickly after we began making Camelot Mead, a light wine made from honey. Professor Oliver's son, Bill, took charge of the winery in 1983. He focused on enhancing the visitor experience by increasing wine quality and variety, establishing gardens and providing great customer service. Sales grew steadily in the 80s, reaching 25,000 cases by 1990. In 1993, Kathleen Oliver joined the winery as General Manager. This allowed Bill to focus on winemaking and viticulture and the new Creekbend Vineyard, which was started in 1994. Retail sales continued to grow and allowed for the construction of a new tasting room in 1997. Major facility expansions occurred in 2002 and 2007 making Oliver Winery one of the largest wineries in the eastern United States. In 2002, interstate expansion began as Kentucky became the first state outside of Indiana to offer Oliver wines. Today, Oliver Winery is an employee-owned company and a world-class destination, offering best-in-class service, beautiful scenery and grounds, and an approachable wine experience to thousands of visitors each year. We distribute our award-winning, fruit-forward wines to 18 states and ship across the country. At Oliver Winery we connect people through wine, and that's really the best part of our story. Through the decades, our visitors and customers have come to expect excellence in every Oliver experience. We're proud to continue that story. Call today to inquire about hosting your private event with us! We offer space for rehearsal dinners, bridal showers, family get togethers and more.
