Bella Vineyards is a first class tour, great wine and a ton of fun. You start tour in a beautifully decorated cave. From there you venture to the top of the vineyard in a Swiss Military transport vehicle. We learned so much about vineyards, wine making and marketing. From there you return to the business side of the caves, where... More

We discovered this little winery after having a glass of Bella Zin at a restaurant for lunch. The tasting rooms are in a cave in the side of a mountain. Cool atmosphere! I loved every single sample offered at the tasting. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and they do not push their wine club (which we had to join). Can't... More

Bella was a surprising highlight of my weekend in Sonoma. I love Dry Creek Zins and Bella has quality wines to offer. In the barn, we tasted a delightful Chardonnay (which I'm not normally a fan of Calif. Chards); we were then led to the "small bites station" outside and were delighted with a Rose paired with saffron, vegetable &... More

This was one of the vineyards we visited with other veterans of DCV Passport weekend (our first time). This was one of the stops that I remember and enjoyed. Several Zinfandel's and a Sirah that I thought was good, which were paired with some great food. Definitely check this place out if you get the opportunity. Unique "cave" wine cellar.

Bella is at the "end of the road." And, worth the extra few miles to get there. The people are nice. The wines are nice.

We rode to this winery as part of a guided bicycle tour through Sonoma County. Of the three wineries we toured (including Quivira), this was definitely our favorite: the ambiance was inviting and relaxed while feeling luxurious. We shared a wine tasting, and were delighted with the food pairings that came with the food: garlic buttermilk mashed potatoes and dark... More

First time for us to taste wines in a cave. When we arrived, the bar area was full. We got a small barrel at the end and began tasting. With so many customers and only one employee, we really didn't get a lot of information on what we were tasting except for what was on the card. By the end... More

Great tour and tasting. Highly recommend. We had a great tour guide ( Lisa?) and thoroughly enjoyed the wines.

Best zin we had! and the multiple tasting station/food paring for different wines made it interesting! We thoroughly enjoyed all the wines offered in the tasting. Kids will have a good time there with picnic table and bean bag toss!

This place was packed with people and there was lots of standing in line during the WinterWineLand weekend. We didn't really care for any of their wines but part of it was the line of people. We weaved our way through the cave for the tasting. No one really spoke to us nor tried to tell us anything about the... More
