Six generations of stubborn, competitive growers and one equally spirited winemaker- that’s the Oliver family. Living smack bang in the middle of McLaren Vale, they flourish on producing perfect parcels of fruit on their 100 hectare ‘Taranga’ property. Their collection of small batch, handcrafted wines speak of both the variety and vintage, capturing a time and place, while continuing to document the family’s ongoing 179 year relationship with the land.
While we have had a long love affair with McLaren Vale’s well known varieties, we also work with some more emerging grapes. On our vineyard you will find Mataro, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Vermentino, Fiano, Tempranillo, Mencia, Touriga, Sagrantino, Merlot, Durif and White Frontignac. While we only make wines from grapes grown exclusively on our Taranga vineyard, we also sell our premium grapes to a number of other wineries like d’Arenberg, Penfolds, Wirra Wirra and Seppeltsfield each year.
The McLaren Vale Grape Wine & Tourism Association acknowledges the Kaurna people as the Traditional Owners of the Country where the McLaren Vale Region is situated today, and pays its respect to Elders past and present.
