About Bell Wine Cellars

Bell Wine Cellars is committed to handcrafting limited edition bottlings of extraordinary wines that reflect the terroir of their vineyards and the care and passion of their growers.

Read More

In California we are blessed with a great variety of microclimates, each capable of producing grapes of extraordinary quality and style. I seek out these individual vineyards with their unique microclimates, and working closely with the winegrower, strive to optimize the fullest potential of each property. from the appellations of Rutherford, Mount Veeder and Yountville in the heart of the Napa Valley, to the Lake County north of us, and the hot Sierra foothills to the east, each vineyard I purchase grapes from is blessed with a singular terroir. Displaying exquisite balance and produced in very small lots, each varietal displays the distinct flavor and personality by the particular growing conditions nurturing each vine - a true sense of place. -Anthony Bell, proprietor and winemaker

If you like to be in the middle of things, come taste our current releases in our tank room, between the towers of stainless steel. Would you enjoy a bit of relaxed education? Take the Grape to Glass tour and make yourself at home in our glass-enclosed reserve room after a walk through the Merlot and Chardonnay vineyard adjacent to our winery. See the barrels we use and understand why we use them. Taste young, up-and-coming Cabernet out of the barrel, and then appreciate what magic time can do, tasting finished wines with artisan cheeses. Are you a true Cabernet-phile? Our clonal blending seminar would appeal to your inner winemaker.

These days, Anthony utilizes his 35 years of winemaking passion simply to make wines we love to drink. Come by for the perfect tasting that share both our rich Napa background and exquisite wines - we think you'll agree.

We had a great time at Bell Wine Cellars. Victoria was awesome! We had a fun time, the power was out at the winery during out visit but that didn't stop the great time that we had. The wines are fantastic. My wife and I collect and love Cabs as well as Cab Franc and Petite Verdot and Bell does a fantastic job on these wines. We joined the Club and will be back:)

AMAZING!! A friend recommended Bell and I'm glad we decided to take her advice (among all the suggestions we received). The wine - only place we bought more than 1 bottle (which we only did at 1 other place). The experience - highly recommended; great interaction and tour, walking out to some vines to learn more about grapes and process. This wine was most memorable of entire trip.

Made us feel like family, even took photos of us in the vineyards. We were lucky enough to see grapes being brought in and crushed too. The owner Anthony Bell was there doing work. This was the best winery we went to all day!

From the moment John greeted us to the time we left, it could not have been a better experience.I am not very familiar with wine and can be somewhat intimidated, but John answered our questions and made us feel at ease. This was the perfect blend of hospitality and delivering a quality tour and product. I can't wait to return!

We enjoyed six days in Napa, and this experience was one of the very best! The staff at Bell Wine Cellars was welcoming and accommodating. John Helfrick was our “host” and we found him incredibly knowledgeable, warm, and engaging. Besides tasting truly phenomenal wine, we were able to walk through part of the vineyard, get our feet in the soil and taste the grapes. John shared Anthony Bell’s background, vision, and the inception of Clone 6 in such an engaging manner. The “pours” were very generous and there wasn’t an average wine in the lineup. Near the end of the tasting, we met Maggie, and she was equally as welcoming. Truly a great tasting/tour that should not be missed. We will recommend to others and most definitely return in the future.

What a nice way to start my 10am tasting. The entire staff was warm, friendly, and engaging. My personal host, John, was knowledgeable about the history of Bell as well as all of the wines poured. I had a great morning.

Victoria was a great host and knows her wines (and food pairings too). The tasting room is located in the same area as the fermentation tanks so the winery has the ambience of a smaller more traditional California winery (e.g. what you more likely found in Napa 15-20 years ago). Great explanations provided regarding what makes Bell wines unique.

Beautiful hidden gem close to Yountville yet far away from the busy bees in town. Long drive way towards the estate sets you into an easier world. The inside is warm & welcoming. You can see everything at once; the barrels, tasting tables and a private tasting area with glass doors. Loved the candles. We were greeted by a limited production of Bell Sparkling!

I'll recommend BE3 Grape to Glass Tour to only wine connoisseurs who can listen about wines for more than one hour otherwise it will be dull. Victoria took great care of us with a wonderful table setting to taste Cabernet sauvignon clones 4, 6, 7 and 337. Valuing our time I feel a BE1 Current Release Tasting would have been better.
