For most of the twentieth century, Oliver Taranga sold their precious yields to other wineries, much of it was destined for the nation's most esteemed labels and memorable flagship vintages.

Taranga was the name given to the southern section of the Oliver property in 1841. Sheep and cattle were raised, perfect for viticulture, vineyards were planted and the family prospered. Generations later, Don Oliver sold fruit to Penfolds, where it became one of the primary components to the mighty Grange. Oliver has since taken up the task of processing the pick of his own crop.

Winemaker Corrina Rayment is McLaren Vale dynasty, daughter of Colin Rayment from the neighbouring heritage Kay Brothers Amery vineyards.
