compared to the other wineries we had visited Bella seemed much more impersonal. The caves were a great atmosphere to taste in.

My wife and I have visited Bella three times. We have found several of the zinfandels and pinots (that are sold under either the Bella label or the Ten Acre label) to be outstanding. The tasting area is back in the cave, although you can also take your wine outside and sit at tables under the trees. Lucy, at the... More

This was our first wine tasting in Sonoma. We cycled to get here with Getaway Adventures. The cycle ride itself was lovely. This vineyard is in a beautiful location. It has all the rustic charm you would expect. Great music playing. The hut where you get your second tasting has a food pairing, ours was crackers and cheese but still... More

We hired a professional wine tour driver for a day during our trip to Sonoma county. Being first-timers to the area (and to wine-tasting), we left the destination up to him. He brought us to the Dry Creek valley area to Bella. We were immediately blown away by the stunning views. The tasting room is in a cave, is very... More

We visited a lot of wineries in the Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma, and Napa, and Bella was among our very favorites. The setting is gorgeous--secluded, at the end of the road, with great vistas into the hills surrounding the Dry Creek Valley. Nice sitting areas outside, right next to the vineyard, with comfy Adirondack chairs. And a very cool tasting... More

There are so many wineries in the Healdsburg area, so you really have to pick and choose. If you're looking for something small (where tour buses are not allowed) and rustic chic, this is your place! The wine tastings are in caves, which are so different. The wines are amazing and the service was impeccable. I'd love to host an... More

We were with Platypus Tours when we discovered this wonderful Vineyard! The tasting area is unusual and they also have a great picnic area. Enjoyed the wine so much, I joined the wine club! Thanks to Army at Platypus Tours for opening our eyes to this great hidden gem!

Excellent pinot noir and zinfandel! The Chardonnay was also very good. The tastings in the "cave" are a fun experience. The people were very friendly and informative about their wines.

We have been spending some time in the area as part of a little getaway and discovered this winery on a drive through Dry Creek Valley. It has some great wines - especially liked Lilly Hill Zin and friendly staff. The views were beautiful and the atmosphere really casual. Hope to go back again and enjoy the caves.
