The Oliver’s have been growing grapes in the Vale since the 1840’s only recently stepping into the world of winemaking. The bulk of their grapes go to big company producers hungry for top end fruit. This wine is dedicated to Don ‘DJ’ Oliver, the 5th generation and current caretaker of the prized Oliver’s Taranga Vineyards. Born in post-war McLaren Vale, as a young boy after school Don would ride the family’s Clydesdales bareback to the stables after helping out in the vineyards. Don’s impressive viticultural work saw him receive the inaugural McLaren Vale Grape Growers Association ‘Excellence in Viticulture’ Trophy.
