Olivers Taranga Vineyards

Farm, Family, Friends

About the winery
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 180 year relationship with the land.

History & Geography
Exactly why William Oliver, his wife Elizabeth and their two children left their home in the Scottish border town of Samieston and set sail for the distant shores of South Australia is a mystery. Their destination was a fledgling colony, with an immigrant population of less than 15-thousand and the journey to get there was a treacherous one. But William Oliver was not a man to be deterred by difficulties. Whatever the reason, the decision to grow wine grapes, paved the way for a six-generation-strong family story of Olivers growing wine grapes in the ‘Seaview’ subregion of McLaren Vale. He amassed around 3000 acres by the time he passed away. Many things about the Olivers remain the same 180 years later. The current generation of Olivers continue to hold strong William Oliver’s ideals of passion, integrity and continuous improvement. And they throw a good dash of respect for family, history and tradition into the mix, with all wines exclusively estate grown.
