Meet The Grapefather

N ello Olivo IS The Grapefather. The father of vineyard and vine. The wine whisperer of gentle voice and commanding words so the grapes know who's boss! Hang around him for a while and he'll tell a few stories — even legends — but some things he'll never tell. The Grapefather's best secrets come inside bottles. Pull the cork and you'll know.
