Nello Olivo on Style Mag Cover

 Nello Olivo on cover of Style magazine

Nello Olivo is on the cover of style magazine, September 2011, issue. The photograph was taken in our tasting room by style staff photographer, Dante Fontana. Nello's smile is great isn't it? He really connects with the lens. (So does his shirt!)

You can grab a free copy of the magazine just about anywhere in town. Click the link to see a larger image of the cover and read the article featuring our tasting room and our 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!

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.)
