Nello Olivo Wins Gold in LA

The 2011 LA International Wine Competition Has Given Gold Medals to Two Nello Olivo Wines

People tell us our wines are good. We like them too. But the medals keep coming in, so we're beginning to think maybe we should keep doing this!

The LA International Wine Competition gives 2 gold medals to Nello Olivo winesThe 72nd annual Los Angeles International Wine & Spirits Competition has given GOLD medals to two Nello Olivo wines. Nearly 3,200 wines were entered and tasted by a 64-member panel comprised of international judges.

Our Merlot '06 was awarded GOLD and BEST OF CLASS, earning 92 points.

Our Cabernet Sauvignon '07 won GOLD with 93 points.

This is our first year to enter wines in this competition.

 

Our 300th Wine Club Member!

 

Deborah Morino is Nello Olivo Wine Club's 300th member. She joined the club during a visit to the wine tasting room on May 28, 2011. Like others who visit the tasting room, Deborah was impressed with the wines, but her reason for joining the club goes deeper.

Deborah's son, Army Specialist Benjamin Morino, is currently on active duty in Afghanistan. Recently, through El Dorado County Association of Realtor's "Honor our Troops" program, Sequoia sent a personalized invitation for her son to enjoy a free steak dinner when he returns home, which Deborah thought was a wonderful thing to do." (Sequoia is Nello Olivo's restaurant, located above the tasting room.)

March 4, 2011 marked the official ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Nello Olivo Wine Tasting Room. Above, Danica Olivo prepares to cut the ribbon as Nello and costumed El Dorado County "Chamber Maids" look on.

It was a long anticipated day for us. Work on the tasting room interior extended many months beyond originally planned. But the results and the public's seeming happiness that we're open has been worth the wait.
