“Interesting setting”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

Having visited 21 wineries in Sonoma this August, we really think Bella produces an average wine. Your tasting takes place in their cave and that was the highpoint of the tasting.

“Bella, so bella!”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

Went there on a weekend with out of town guests. The attendants at the winery were so nice! They had a wine and food pairing event going on. The day was beautiful and the wine was great!

“Really cool small wine maker, esp. for Zin fans!”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

The atmosphere here is worth the trip,even if you dont like Zinfandel. You taste inside the caves right next to aging barrels of wine. We used the tops of barrels to quaff the offered tastes and enjoyed a knowledgable server (i forget her name). Outside is beautiful too (is anywhere in sonoma not?) and i hear they have live music there sometimes on the weekends.

“Nice visit”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

We stopped here based on some research our travel companions did - one of a few wineries we visited in the Healdsburg area. Personable staff and fun experience to taste wine in a cave directly beneath the soil in which the grapes are growing. While the most of the wines we tried weren't our favorites, none were bad. We did taste a Pinot Noir that we enjoyed a lot. Our guide through the Bella journey, Michael, took note of that and offered us a taste of another (off the list) pinot that was outstanding! Definitely worth a stop if you're in the area and want a laid-back tasting experience.

“Ultimate tour is ultimate experience”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

We had the best wine tour of all at Bella Vinyards. Bella is a small vineyard and winery in the hills of Healdsburg. Highly recommend the Ultimate Tour for the best experience which includes a Swiss army truck ride into the vineyard and to the top of the mountain with wine tasting throughout. Unbelievable views! Then a tour of the wine cave with a barrel tasting. Followed by a seating in the cave with more tasting. Fantastic value for the money. Don't miss this one.
