At Oliver, we think differently.

We're not afraid to have our heads in the clouds. You could even say dreaming big is what Oliver Winery does best. What started as a hobby back in the 1960s, has grown Oliver Winery into an employee-owned company and one of the largest wineries east of the Mississippi.

Oliver is a world-class destination, ranked among Travel + Leisure's top 25 wineries to visit in the U.S. in 2017. In 2018, Wine Business Monthly named Oliver one of the top 50 wineries in the U.S.

As we grow, our philosophy remains the same. We believe that all styles of wine deserve the highest craft and respect. We make our top-rated wines in the gentlest way possible, and each one of them share one common characteristic: fruit-forward taste.
