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. « less

The wine room was literally in their storage facility. It was an impressive set up. The private tasting area was also excellent. The wines are... More

Welcomed by Maggie as we exited our car- she had 2 glasses of wine in hand to greet us with her warm welcoming smile and infectious passion. She gave us tour of the vineyard along with a history overview. We had a private table set aside with cheese plate as we sat looking over the vines I felt I was... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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.

Best of all is we believe that Bell is one of the top wines in all of wine country. We are part of club and would highly... More

We visited Napa for a quick day tour in September 2013. Our tour driver took us to Bell for the intimate setting and friendly people. We were greeted by Amanda who gave us a tour and answered our questions about the wine making process. She was so sweet!! We then moved on to tasting. All the wines were good, but... More

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... More
