Owner description: Established in 1991, Bell Wine Cellars is a small, family owned winery committed to hand-crafting limited edition bottling of extraordinary wines. We're less than a mile south of Yountville on Washington Street, in an exquisite pale stone winery, surrounded by vineyard and cloaked in quiet.If you enjoy Cabernet, you'll enjoy Bell. We make six different Cabernets as well as Sauvignon blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot and Syrah; total production is under 15,000 cases annually. Nestled between the towering stainless steel tanks, guests can taste our signature wines at the intimate, elegant Tasting Bar. We also host more extensive educational tastings in our lovely, enclosed Reserve Room overlooking the barrels. During much of the year, our spacious Patio is also open for tasting appointments, under the arbor as the sun slowly arcs toward the Mayacamas to the west.Come visit and taste what Anthony Bell, a globally educated winemaker with over 35 years of experience in Napa, can produce. We guarantee you'll leave speaking Cabernet fluently, and with a smile.

“BELL a BEAUTY”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2012

We were taken to this small winery as part of a golf/wine tour. Such a lovely welcome from Joann and a delightful tour from a lady who has acceptional knowledge and keeness for her wines. We thoroughly enjoyed our tasting with cheeses to complement.

“Tucked Away by Appointment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2012

Bell worked at BV for many years and did huge amounts of research and work on what are called the 'clones'. Wine Geek Talk for the natural mutations that take place with vines producing new varieties. He knows how to grow great grapes and it shows in the wines. The tasting is in the winery surrounded by tanks and its a great experience. We have a good video of it on the Amicis Tours site and you can also find it in the Napa Valley Wine Tour iPhone app from Sutro Media. Everytime I've been here my guests have loved the experience.

“Bell Wine Cellars a MUST”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2012

We had a tasting and tour and this can not be beat! We had the lovely Joann take us around and show us the vineyard and explain the wines which were amazing. This was paired with cheese as well and we had a private room. We could have and should have spent all day there!
