Hoosier Wine Cellars filed a report from the vineyard of Oliver Winery in Bloomington this week. Oliver is the largest and oldest winery in Indiana and probably the largest winery east of the Mississippi with annual production estimated at over 850,000 gallons per year. Oliver’s fifty-four acre Creekbend Vineyard near Bloomington primarily provides grapes for the winery’s Creekbend estate grown wines which includes three types of Chambourcin plus Cab Sauv, Traminette and Pinot Grigio. Oliver is also a major importer of Labrusca grapes from other regions. See: http://www.hoosierwinecellar.com/blog/?p=3550
