It's time for the biggest wine event of the season!
PASSPORT 2015 IS COMING
Once again The Grapefather will preside over the fun from his famous Godfather Chair. Live Italian music, decor, costumes, delicious foods and of course great deals on the Best Italian Wines Under the California Sun!
Over 20 El Dorado wineries participate in Passport, but everyone agrees: "Do not miss the show at Nello Olivo!" We use Passport as an excuse for our annual Grapefather Wine Mob Grapester Gangster Family Reunion, and you're invited--passport or not!
It happens April 11-12 and 18-19 at the Nello Olivo Tasting Room, 643 Bee Street, Placerville. If you want the full Passport experience with entrance to all participating wineries, buy your TICKETS HERE. Call us at 530-409-5603 with questions.
A Nello Olivo Double Release PLUS Barrel Tasting!
Grapefather Red, Nello's lavish new blend of 4 wines comes to you aged (up to 5 years) and juicy ripe. What started out as just-for-fun has become a standout surprise you need to taste for yourself.
Sagrantino, 2012, succulent and boldly expressive, winner of Gold Medals at this year's prestigious San Francisco Chronicle International and Toast of the Coast wine competitions. A mouth-watering, lip-smacking, gratifying indulgence. (Ask how to get 45% off a case of Sagrantino '12 during Passport!)
Direct from the barrel comes Nello's new tawny port, tentatively named La Dolce Vita. Made from the Wine Mob's most favored white--Viognier--this lucious treat is one part ambrosia, one part bliss, one part Anita Ekberg.
The Family is here to welcome you with a Grapefather $100-Dollar Bill worth $100 toward the retail price on any case of mix-and-match reds valid during Passport only. Wear convincing mob attire and we'll give you an additional 5% off!
The Family can also initiate you into the Wine Mob (aka Nello Olivo Wine Club) so you can enjoy club savings all year.
Our menu for Passport includes Mama Olivo's Lasagna, Cousin Vinny's Baked Brie with Crostini, Luigi's Vegetarian Ravioli and Aunt Gina's Luscious Cannolis. Free with Passport ticket or $5 (applies to any wine purchase).
“Italians have a little joke, that the world is so hard a man must have two fathers to look after him, and that's why they have Grapefathers.”
