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.

A true asset for the winery. The Bell setting is hard to beat. The grounds are beautiful and the staff are warm and welcoming.

We were looking for a detailed explanation of the process, not just tasting, didn't care about tasting. Same with the others in the group. Process explanations were cursory and details had to be pried out of the guide. We explained we didn't know tasting, but no effort was made to explain doing it. Different wines into the same glass can't be right. Guide seemed ready to go home.Big $ waste.

We went to Bell Winery on recommendation from Local Wally. As first timer Napa visitors, Bell Winery was a nice starting point. Beautiful vineyards and Cellar that resembled a small castle. The Grape to Glass Tour was very enjoyable and we learned a good amount about wine. Especially on a perfect day, it is a great way to be initiated into the Napa atmosphere!

We had a great time at Bell Winery. We arrived a little early so they gave us the bocce ball equipment and we played for about 20 minutes. It was great! Once the tour started, we enjoyed every minute (and sip) of it. We look forward to returning (and receiving the wine we purchased)! Thanks Bell Winery!

We were excited to try their wines as they came recommended. It started slow and their greeter stated there was another group running late so gave us a glass to hold over. Unfortunately they were 30 min late with impacted our tasting and time learning about them and the wine as the greeter tried to go between both parties. The late party was rude and took most of the time. Worst experience.

I do not drink wine, but 1st time visit to the area thought this would be a good way to just learn a little about the wine making process and see the vineyards. We were offered some cheese. At the end of the session was told it was an additional (after the tour fee) $25ea for 4 tiny pieces of cheese. The Vineyard "tour" was 10 steps to look at 2 grapevines -- Disappointed.

Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly and made the wine and cheese experience a lot of fun. We enjoyed seeing the vines and learning about the wine making process and aging process. Highly recommend.

We learned about this vineyard last year while on vacation as we were heading out of town and it was too early for the tasting room to be open. Since our last name is Bell, we made the time to stop this year and were so blown away by the quality of the wines that we became club members. We had a very personalized and informative tasting. Keep up the excellent work!

Bell Wine Cellars is a small winery that makes a select number of bottles of their various types of wines. Their wines are rarely found in commercial stores. We were greeted by our friendly and knowledgeable hostess The history of their winemaker, Anthony Bell (formerly of Beaulieu), is extremely interesting due to his careful and lengthy process to produce Clone wines.

I called back a little later to follow up and they were very accommodating. Upon arrival, they knew who I was and took us out on the patio do the tasting. Our host was very knowledgeable and was able to answer any of our questions.
