Michael took us through our wine tastings and made the whole experience most delightful. I look forward to remembering the fun we had when we open the bottles of wine we shipped back!

I visited Bella Vineyards in June and it was the perfect time of year. Slight chill in the evenings but a warm and sunny afternoon. Bella offers a little something for everyone seeking to enjoy great wine and relax. My three girlfriends and I stayed there for four hours because we didn't want to leave.
We did the Ultimate tour and it was well worth it, because the views on top of the vineyard were like a postcard and learning about the winery and wine making process was led by Devin who could entertain and educate the most sophisticated of wine snobs as well as us....not so experienced : )
The caves are unique and cozy. Outside there was the sound of music, smell of grilled peaches, sights of one friend trying to hula hoop and the other laid back in a shaded adirondacks.....
If you have never been to Sonoma or even if you have..go to Bella Winery!

Loved the smaller, family run vineyard! Wine was outstanding and the Caves were also amazing! What an experience riding 20 miles from vineyard to vineyard!

Bella was recommended to us by our tour guide (Sam at Platypus). We had a great time. Devin was knowledgable about all facets of the process. We had a ride up the mountain to the vineyards in a Swiss Army vehicle called a Pinzgauer. We enjoyed some very good wines with a mountaintop view. Then rode back down the mountain (singing the Indiana Jones theme music) to the Cave Tour and the private tasting room for our limited release tasting. Overall, it was an excellent experience with some very fine wines. We had such a good visit that three of us joined the club while we were there.

This was one of the first vineyards I had been to after arriving in California and they set the bar very high! Not only did we get a fantastic tour of the vineyard and the caves, but the wine tasting was fun and the wine itself was very good. The staff, especially our tour guide Devin, was extremely friendly. I look forward to when I can go back and visit again!
