A visit to Oliver Winery, north of Bloomington, Indiana, is always going to be enjoyable. Whether it is in the spring when the flowers are in bloom, or in the summer when you can sit at a table by the lake and sip your wine, or in the fall when the patio is warmed by the heaters so visitors can still enjoy the outdoors, or in the winter when the barrel room is open for wine lovers to drink a glass of wine surrounded by barrels of future vintages. We were able to relax and enjoy our wine over the Thanksgiving weekend at a table in the barrel room.
Wines made by winemaker, Bill Oliver, are always excellent. This visit we were treated to a new dry, red blend, made from Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah grapes. The wine has dark berry flavors with an aromas of cherries. It is one of the best blends we’ve tasted at Oliver Winery. Of course, the Sauvignon Blanc and the Shiraz were as good as usual. For those who enjoy sweet wines, the winery has some excellent choices such as the soft red and soft white. Their meads and ciders are also big hits with visitors.
If you’re near Bloomington, or just want to plan a trip, be sure to stop in at Oliver Winery. The winery is an excellent spot to taste wine and while away a couple of relaxing hours, no matter the season.
