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 experience at Bell, Victoria and Sam were amazing hosts! We got awesome information about the vineyards and about how unique Yountville is and all about the winemaking process. The wines were amazing, very well balanced and delicious! Overall this was such a great experience, it was really cool being able to taste in the middle of the winery.

I wish we had more time there because we all enjoyed it so much. We will absolutely be back and will recommend to all of our family and friends. Our host Sam was amazing! Thank you!

I have to declare that we are some what prejudice since we have been members of Bell wine club for 14 years. This tasting was even more enjoyable due to our host Darren ( I hope this is his name). We were joined by a couple vacationing from Boston and I think they enjoyed it as much as we did. Darren was extremely pleasant and knowledgeable. The only problem is we always spend close to $1,000.

First impression was low key, not particularly impressive with the small tasting bar and curtained area. Host was fine...made one faux pas when alluding to the two women in our party being an older generation than her (probably the same age!) Wines were good, nothing we were going to buy, until we tasted the SPECTACULAR $200 cab. May be the best we've ever had.

Although they were doing 3 different types of tastings while we were there, one didn’t fell crowded and there was no problem with noise level. They have outside areas that would be great during warmer weather,

He showed us around the winery, poured wonderful tasting wines and took some photos for us in the vineyard. We enjoyed the wines so much we joined their wine club.
