Attraction details
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.

“Great Grapes to Glass”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2013

We found a bottle of Big Guy wine in a liquor store before our trip to Sonoma. We decided that we liked it and wanted to check out the winery. We called and made an appointment the next day. We did the full grapes to glass overview and it was a great first stop for folks new to the tasting process. It was a private tasting along with cheese pairings. We learned a lot and walked away with some great bottles of wine!

“Bell Winery worth the visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2013

Maggie was awesome and represents this winery well. Her enthusiasm and dedication to detail ensures that each person will have an informative experience in a relaxed atmosphere.
Her pairings of wines and cheeses is not only innovative but stimulates further speculation of other food pairings with these wines.

Highly recommend this winery and the wines they produce.

“Great Personal Attention”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2013

We had a small tasting for a group that was hosted by Maggie Smith and she was fantastic. The wine choices were superb and the cheese pairings added to our enjoyment. The tasting room is casual (set among wine barrels) and a perfect setting for enjoying Maggie's information about the winery and the wines. It is very convenient to Hwy 29 and the Vintage 1870 exit. Be sure to get information about the Clone 6 wine.
