Owner description: Established in 1991, Bell Wine Cellars is a small, family owned winery committed to hand-crafting limited edition bottling of extraordinary wines. 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.

We have been Bell fans for a while, so naturally visited in person while in Napa. We had an incredible private tasting. The cheese pairings were excellent (aged gouda, humboldt fog, and some other "interesting" cheeses). Sadly they are not making the Sonnette blend anymore, but due to the closeout we were able to stock up on it for a really great price. The Clone 6 cab is one of the best cabs out there IMO. Our host was personable and engaging. Sandra even pulled a bottle from her library for us to try alongside the current release of the same wine. We will definitely be back.

We were recommended by another wine cellar in Yountville, to visit Bell Wine Cellar, and I guess that says it all!

Staff was friendly and especially the lady who hosted us during the wine tasting session, and she has good product knowledge of her wine.

Recommended: There is a beautiful courtyard outside the wine cellar, by the vineyard, great for photo-taking, or simply taking in the fabulous sights of the blue skies and the green landscape of mountains and vineyards..It's picturesque!!

Went to Bell for a tasting and loved it. The wine was outstanding and Dan, who gave us the tasting, was dynamic, friendly, and so informative. Great story teller and really made the tasting special for us! We bought a few bottles. It was great!
