This is a must see vineyard experience. The Bella Caves are truly unique and their Zins are fantastic. If you are looking for something different, try their Cuvee

We drove out of our way to visit Bella and we were disappointed. The wines were average at best and I dumped most of them out. The woman helping us was fairly awkward, but maybe I've been spoiled by how excellent most of the staff has been at other wineries. I did like the cave atmosphere but that didn't make up for the rest of the experience.

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.

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!

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.
