Oliver is Farm to Table Country

We are Canada’s Wine Capital, and of course our wines pair well with just about anything. Whether it’s a gourmet meal prepared by a Red Seal chef at your new favourite restaurant, a midday break at the local bakery, or a visit to one of our markets for fresh produce and exotic spices, Oliver’s diversity of flavours tempt any palate. Pair with more than 35 wineries, and it’s bon appetit time. Our selection of vintages, available directly from the wineries or local retail outlets, is second to none. Every style and flavour, including reds, whites, rosés, sparkling and ice wines are available. Wineries of every type and size are willing to open their doors and let wine enthusiasts swirl and sip. Pair a bottle with specially crafted dishes at a winery patio, or with local artisan cheese and nibbles for an impromptu picnic on the winery grounds. The views are as good as the wines. From rejuvenating summer sipping to fortifying winter comfort food, Oliver is farm to table country. It’s where the chefs tend herb gardens and sustainable is part of our culinary culture.
