Nello Olivo Wins 7 Medals in O.C. Wine Competition

Orange County Fair Wine Competition Awards

Nello Olivo brings home 7 medals from the prestigious Orange County Fair 2010 Wine Competition.

Nello Olivo wines have garnered 7 medals from judges at the Orange County Fair Wine Competition, held June 5-6, 2010. This competition is open only to wines made in California and is the largest and most comprehensive judging of California wines in the world. This year 2,918 wines were judged by 87 select wine makers.

Here are the 7 award-winning Nello Olivo wines:

Merlot 2006
Primitivo 2005

Barbera 2006
Super Tuscan 2007

Cabernet Sauvignon 2007
Super Tuscan Style 2005
Sangiovese 2006

This is the first year Nello Olivo wines have been submitted to any wine competitions. Every wine submitted to the prestigious Orange County Fair competition this year earned an award. This underscores that the quality of care given in every step of Nello Olivo's wine making does translate into true quality in the wines themselves.

Thanks goes to the judges and of course to our winemakers, Marco Cappelli and Lance Campbell.
