We look ahead with excitement to 2015. Here are some plans and predictions we're making for improvement, growth and more fun in the coming year.
MORE great wines
"Yes, please! More of your amazing wines!" We hear you, and we're not messing with our proven line. All your favorite varietals are coming this year in our 2012 vintage. We'll release them as each wine hits its stride. Watch our calendar for monthly release party announcements.
NEW great wines
Like you, we enjoy new stuff once in a while to keep things fascinating. This year we're bottling a new tawny port-style wine we think kicks "class." It's made from our award-winning Viognier, the #1 favored white with the wine mob. Coming also is a new proprietary red blend - yet to be named - made from wines that have been aging in barrels, some for as long as 5 years. This blend will come to your wine rack at its peak and ready to drink, so look forward to a low "enjoy it now" bottle price!
We like our elegantly smart labels, but some say it's difficult to read from a distance what wine is inside (even at arm's length for some of us). A redesign, somewhat like our Sinfonia label, will show up on yet-to-be-bottled wines in 2015.
NEW system software - Yay!
Looking to the future, we're installing a new software system for sales, inventory tracking and wine club management. It will make for better customer service, provide solid security and will grow as we grow! Yes, we're growing in sales and club members, thanks to you! (It's fast and easy to join by calling 530-409-5603 during tasting room hours.)
MORE Gold Medals
Gold is The Grapefather's favorite color. We've been on a competition winning streak with more Gold Medals won than any other El Dorado region winery - 3 years running. We can't plan for it, but we can predict 2015 will yield more Gold Medals at local and international competitions for Nello Olivo Wines. See our current medals list and make your own predictions.
