Spring 2010 Wine Tasting Dinner


Marco Cappelli greets guests before dinner in Sequoia's Empire Ballroom.

Every table booked, each guest happy, live music, a delicious 7-course dinner, and Nello Olivo wine to taste and enjoy. The Spring 2010 Nello Oivo Wine Tasting Dinner held March 27th at Sequoia in Placerville was a delight start to finish.

The big news to celebrate, of course, were the medals won by Nello Olivo wines at the recent Monterey International Wine Competition: Platinum medals for Barbera '06 and Toscanello '07, and Silver for Primitivo '05 and Petite Sirah '06.
