Nello Olivo Wins at Finger Lakes NY

Nello Olivo wins in Finger Lakes NY

Nello Olivo wines have been awarded medals by judges at the 2010 prestigious Finger Lakes International Wine Competition in Rochester, NY.


All four Nello Olivo wines entered won medals. They are

Silver: Merlot '06, Toscanello '07
Bronze: Petite Sirah '06, Sangiovese '06 

This year Finger Lakes celebrated its 10th year and drew a record number of entries—3,010—from around the world. As reported on its Facebook page, this year's competition is the first in the world to have wines entered from all 50 US States. Sitting on the panel of judges were 56 distributors, restaurateurs, educators and winemakers representing 10 countries and 10 states.

A popular aspect of the competition is that all winners at Gold level and up supply a case of their winning wine to a special auction event. Proceeds from the auction are donated entirely to Camp Good Days, a camp dedicated for children, adults and families whose lives have been touched by cancer and other life challenges. All camp activities are free of charge for the participants.

We enjoyed seeing this photo of open bottles after the judging. Can you spot any Nello Olivo bottles here?
