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.

Victoria greeted us with a hug, smiles and some Sauvignon Blanc. They really get hospitality there! Victoria toured us through the vineyards, production facility and barrel room. We tasted the Bell Family's finest Chardonnay, Cabs and more. Really gotta say, they hit it out of the park. Even the Business Manager, Sharon came out to check on our group. Private yet easily accessible from Hwy 29!

We bought a few bottles and will likely join their wine club. We visited about 10 wineries on our trip and Bell was right at the top. Thanks to Darren and the team at Bell Wine Cellars for a wonderful experience! Cheers! Bill B.

Our tasting experience was very personalized and was conducted in a warm, comfortable setting. Barrel operations were happening nearby, adding to the working atmosphere of the cellar. Bell's artisanal approach focuses on terroir differences between growing areas and builds extensively on the science of wine making. Wonderful wines in a savvy, informing setting.

Victoria has amazing command of all the facts and pleasures we wanted to know and experience PLUS she was delightful in every way. We even purchased two cases of your fabulous wine. It was also our pleasure to meet Anthony Bell. It is our great hope to see him next time he visits Little Rock, Arkansas.

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!
