This May, Oliver held its fourth Field Day. Oliver employees came together to learn about the ins and outs of the different departments, connect with one another, and understand how we all work together to create this wonderful company.
The day was a great success, with a record attendance of 70+ employees and nine different presentations. We were taken through the winemaking process from the vine, to the bottling line (and beyond), with engaging presentations from leaders in each department. Each session was informative, interactive, and engaging, allowing everyone a glimpse into the hard work that goes into a bottle of Oliver.
Employees were given the chance to play the role of winemaker by creating their own blend, as well as taste upcoming wine innovations. With insights on company strategy, sales initiatives, new technology, bottling process, our hospitality approach, and a special presentation on ballooning from Bill Oliver, we learned how great of a team we make. It's a group that knows the value of thinking differently, expecting quality, respecting others, and always getting stuff done.
