We’re Open for

Outdoor Tastings

The Bell estate is cloaked in quiet, touting a pure and pastoral atmosphere just outside of downtown Yountville. Our tasting room rests alongside neat vineyard rows that reach towards distant peaks like Mt. Veeder and the Mayacamas. As a working winery, we greet visitors with the sensory details of the practice, from the bustling activity of harvest to the intoxicating aroma of cellaring wine. We host several wine tasting experiences and special events that not only frame the beauty of our natural landscape but the tremendous quality of our wines.
