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.

Our host, Jan, provided a thoughtful and engaging tasting experience that gave us the opportunity to learn more about clone varietals in Napa Valley, as well as taste some delicious wines!

He is very knowledgeable about Bell Wine Cellars, Napa Valley and wine in general. He really made our tasting experience enjoyable. I will definitely revisit Bell next time I'm in Napa.

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,
