Nello Olivo Wines
Welcome to Nello Olivo Wines and Rancho Olivo Vineyards.
We're an active bunch here, with events scheduled almost every week of every month. View our event calendar.

The Nello Olivo Tasting Room in Placerville is open 6 days a week. Please come see us and taste the wines you've been hearing so much about.
Our newly released Barbera 2010 apparently wowed judges at the 2013 Pacific Rim International Wine Competition. They awarded it a Gold medal, named it Best of Class, plus gave it highest honors as Best Red Wine of Show.
"This is what every winemaker tries for," says Nello Olivo, "to create wine that stands out in some way from the others. It's not an easy thing to do. Especially since there's really no accounting for people's tastes....especially judges at a wine competition!"
Formerly "Tasty Tuesdays," we've moved to a better day and time. From 6 to 8pm means there's more time to arrive, enjoy and relax. Can you think of a more enjoyable informal dinner for a Thursday among friends?
Nello Olivo on KCRA News
July 28, 2010, Nello Olivo appeared in a 2-minute news segment on Sacramento's KCRA Channel 3 Evening News. In the segment Nello walks us into the vineyards and talks about the beginnings of his winemaking enterprise. How is Nello on TV? We think he's eloquent and charming as ever...and humble too (the "spitting" comment). And the vineyard looks fantastic!
