Nello Olivo Wins Gold in the First Wine Competition of 2014

Winning Gold in the 2014 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition

In our first ever try at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, our 2010 Sangiovese and 2011 Primitivo have been awarded Gold Medals.

The annual San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition is the first major competition to happen each new year. This time it drew a record 5,825 entries from wineries in 25 states. This makes it the largest judging of American wines and the biggest wine competition held on the continent.

In addition to the 2 Gold Medals, our 2010 Toscanello and 2010 Barbera won Silver, and the 2010 Sagrantino, bronze.

We're excited to have the 2014 judging season off to such a great beginning!
