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.

Excellent experience! Yan Silberstein was our guide and he did an absolutely extraordinary job! Not only did he continue to pull wines to add to our tasting in order to compare vintages and varietals, but he was incredibly knowledgable and we really appreciated the things we learned from him. He also added a barrel tasting to our experience and we blended two wines together to taste. He was great!

A lovely small winery with wine (especially the red, but white too) that is to die for (if you like silky smooth wine that is approachable now, check it out)! Tasting fees are not unreasonable and the quality of their wine matches/surpasses most of the pricier wines we tried on our trip. This winery is a little off the radar, but it shouldn't be! We'll be back for sure.

The Grape to Glass tour was fascinating. The passion Mr. Bell has for winemaking is evident in everything he does, but especially in the wines themselves. During this visit, we found a whole new appreciation for winemaking & wine, and were fascinated by his research into clones/heirloom varieties. We joined the wine club and cannot wait for our first shipment!

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!

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.

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.
