Oliver is an employee-owned company.
In 2006, Oliver Winery became 100% employee owned through an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). We are a family of dedicated employees.
As employee-owners, we have a real stake in the game. The ESOP is an extra incentive to come to work every day and do the best job possible. We share in the company’s successes and failures; every grape cluster harvested, every bottle of wine sold, every smile on a customer’s face represents the ability to help our company grow. Sharing in the ownership of the company is a direct way to see our hard work and dedication pay off. We work hard and make responsible decisions to ensure Oliver Winery remains a healthy, growing business so we can create a more stable future for ourselves and our families.
This ownership adds great meaning to our work. Do you want the same meaningful, fun work? Browse our open positions.
We care about our community.
As members of an ESOP, we feel it is important to support the community that makes Bloomington such a great home for our company. We are proud to support many wonderful organizations including WonderLab, Options, Cardinal Stage, Stonebelt, Buskirk Chumley Theater, Bloomington Hospital Foundation, Bloomington Playwrights Project, Shalom Center, Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard, local Rotary clubs, Local Growers Guild, Community Foundation of Bloomington/Monroe County, Monroe County CASA, Community Justice and Mediation Center, Sycamore Land Trust, Local First, and the Monroe County Humane Association.
We adopt families for the holiday season, volunteer our time and encourage our staff to participate in non-profit organizations for personal and professional growth. When we are not busy making and selling wine, we also love to hang out together as friends and co-workers, with a glass of Oliver wine, of course!
We value personal well-being & health.
Oliver Winery's "Live Well" program promotes the personal well-being of all employees. We host lunch-and-learn sessions with area experts on topics from financial health to good posture. An annual healthy eating/fitness challenge, onsite free flu shots, an onsite blood drive, and more keep us focused on living the good life. In 2014 and 2015, our commitment to health and fitness earned us Gold recognition as an American Heart Association Fit-Friendly Worksite.
