Oliver’s Taranga is a family run property that was settled in 1841. Shortly after came the first plantings on the property. Now being cared for by sixth generation family members, the Oliver’s are considered one of the premium sustainably certified growers in the region. So much so that they are one of the few from McLaren Vale to provide grapes to Penfold’s for the illustrious Grange.
Now under the guidance of the effervescent winemaker Corrina Wright, these grapes are being showcased in the Oliver’s Taranga wine range. Corrina is fast earning the reputation for producing ultra-premium age worthy wines that reflect the unique character of the Taranga Vineyard.
