Passport Weekend 2013

Nello Olivo and The Godfather Experience

Start Your Passport Weekend with Us for a "Godfather Experience" You Can't Refuse!


23rd annual Passport Weekends:
April 13-14 & 20-21

During two glorious spring weekends each year, award-winning wineries in El Dorado Wine Country feature luscious wine and food pairings, barrel tastings, art, music, and other activities for the throngs of fun-loving folks who attend.

This year each participating winery will create a unique setting based on a movie or film star and match its wine, food, and people to that theme. Nello Olivo Wines has chosen for its theme "Godfather Experience."

Come taste our best Italian style wines and delicious morsels of authentic Italian cuisine and dessert.

Other surprises you'll just have to attend to discover. We won't spoil the fun!

Passport Weekend is the most anticipated wine event of the year and is always great fun. Your ticket gets you access to as many of the 30 participating wineries as you choose to visit.
