Wine Tasting in a 19th Century Wine Cellar

Rancho Olivo Vineyards lies within the boundaries of a private residential neighborhood in Cameron Park, California. Due to restrictions prohibiting a tasting room on the vineyard property itself, Nello Olivo's tasting room is located just 15 minutes away in the wine cellar of the historic Bee-Bennett house.

The Nello Olivo Wine Tasting Room is located in Sequoia's historic cellar.

Owned by Nello and Danica Olivo, parts of the Bee-Bennett House date back to 1853. It was built by one of California's earliest entrepreneurs, Colonel Frederick Bee, and later expanded by Judge Marcus Bennett who raised his large family here. The Nello Olivo Tasting Room is in the original wine cellar of the house.
