Come taste our new 2012 Viogneir! Release party this weekend at the tasting room-wine tasting and great food.

August 31 - September 2, 11am-7pm

Nello Olivo Tasting Room
643 Bee Street, Placerville

Wine tasting plus fresh pasta and sides
paired with our 2012 Viognier - only $5

(We'll apply the $5 to any wine purcase.)

Nello Olivo Viognier Our excellent Viognier has been so popular it disappears every year. Our '09, '10, and '11 vintages sold out fast, leaving Nello Olivo Viognier fans low and dry.

It's a little like when viognier (vee-on-YAY) grapes almost went extinct in 1965. Only 30 acres of it existed, and that was in the Rhone region of France.

You can get Nello Olivo's 2012 Viognier here, but it will go extinct. Because we can only make so much. And because even people who are in reasonable control over other aspects of their lives get smitten with Viognier greed when they taste it. Sad. (But they seem happy.)

Viognier is becoming a favored white wine. Its depth of character and complexity beats out Chardonnay. Its spice, floral, citrus, apricot, apple and peach flavors in a medium bodied wine make it refreshing. And it plays nicely with vegetarian pastas, bold seafood or even spicy dishes.

Come taste it this weekend and enjoy lunch with us! (Served until 5pm.)
