Valentine's Day with Nello Olivo

Wine plus chocolate equals love at Nello Olivo WinesThe most romantic day of the year is coming!

The combination of romance and wine has a long history. In Medieval Europe, gifts of wine and sweets were especially popular to show romantic interest. In Venice on the day of the Festival of the Twelve Marys, young men paraded to a church to give desserts and wine to eligible bachelorettes. The next day, they would find the ladies again, this time at the homes of wealthy town dignitaries, where they would woo them again with wine and sweets. Hmmm. Sound vaguely familiar??

Here at Nello Olivo Wines, we offer 3 ways to woo with, or be wooed by, wine and sweets . . .

Sequoia By The Night - January 10, 2013

Nello Olivo sponsors Sequoia By The NightGrilled Chicken Timbale, Winter Squash Soup, Mixed Grill with Beef, Quail and Salmon, and Warm Bread Pudding are on the menu January 10, 2013.

Nello Olivo Wines sponsors Sequoia By The Night dinners for folks who remember Sequoia Mansion's fine public restaurant past. While it's now a Wedgwood wedding and banquet facility, much of what people loved about the "old" days still exists: great food prepared and styled by Chef David Bagley, one of our area's best chefs, and classic Victorian architecture and interior stylings. This 1853 mansion is still as warm and welcoming as ever.
