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.

Ended up coming here on a whim and I am so glad we did! I was absolutely blown away. As Bell is a little tucked away off 29, we had an incredibly private tasting and enjoyed every once. Literally. The wine was beautiful and even better was the education from Gretchen. She answered all our questions knowledgeably and taught us about clones! Check this place out. You will NOT regret it!

If you’ve seen the movie Decanted you already know Bell is a legend. Darren made the education around Cabernet clones the highlight of our trip to Napa. We walked the vineyard and discussed the properties of clones 4, 6 and 7 and why a grower may like one when a winemaker May prefer another. The wines are elegant and deep. A must stop in Napa!

Pros: Ambience was great. Our host was nice. Cons: waiting 10 min in-between each tasting, (out on the patio) then getting forgotten at the end. After sitting > 15 min, we took our own walk through the vineyard. Received an apology later. If you like acidic reds, you will like Bell.

She is personable, authentic, and knowledgeable. Even though she is not a tasting room hostess, she did an excellent job.

It was a fun, relaxed and enjoyable experience we had at Bell. No wine tasting has ever been as educationally and as enjoyable for our group that care from Asia, Canada and the US.
