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.

“Vast knowledge, fantastic wine!”
Reviewed 26 January 2014

A group of 4 women went to Napa for a 40th birthday. We took a wine tour and this was our first stop. Amanda Lusk was upbeat and enthusiastic about her work. She provided a great overview of the vineyard and what they produced. We felt spoiled by the cheese and wine sampling. The winery is a cozy place that is not pretentious but still delivers a quality wine. Thank you for welcoming us into your "home" and making such a good first impression!

“The highlight of our day of wine tasting!”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

We heard about Bell Winery Cellar from our limo driver and were fortunate to be accommodated with short notice. We had a wonderful tasting experience hosted by Sandra Bell. We were definitely wow'ed. It was so interesting and educational to have her explain the wine making process and then step outside and have Anthony Bell personally walk us through the crush process while they were in the middle of it. Truly a lovely couple who have a passion for what they are doing and enjoy sharing that passion with the public. Their love for wine making is evident in their wines, because they are all great! Thank you again for the great visit. This is a must visit!

“Bell Wine Cellars: THE Highlight of our trip!”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

We had a wonderful driver, Brian Sayles, who started our morning with a visit to Bell Wine Cellars and Vineyards. Afterwards, we compared every wine we tasted and every tour to Bell. Maggie was so friendly and knowledgeable with her pairings of cheese and wines and her background on Bell. It was the ONE and ONLY wine club we joined and our first shipment will arrive tomorrow! Fabulous wines!

“Harvest Stomp Party”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

Since Lucille Ball stomped grapes 40 years ago I've wanted to give that a try. What a wonderful event. Hopefully, you can go next year. The wine and foods were excellent. The band played fantastic music and the grape stomping was a hoot! A great value. Fantastic wines. What a wonderful day.
