Bello Family Vineyards will be opening it's New Tasting Room at 929 Main Street, neighboring Gott's Roadside, in St Helena March 2012. We welcome locals and visitors alike to visit with us, learn about our story and taste our hand crafted boutique wines made by St Helena local winemaker Aaron Pott with fuit farmed by David Abreu - a third-generation rancher from St Helena.
In 2000, determined to produce a premium Cabernet Sauvignon our proprietor Michael Bello purchased a piece of prime real estate located on St. Helena Highway in the Napa Valley’s Rutherford Bench district, known for its superior wine-growing conditions and excellent drainage. Once the ideal location was obtained, Michael set about constructing a French farmhouse with materials imported from France, incorporating details that had never been seen before in the Valley. The quest to produce a quality boutique Cabernet Sauvignon had now been set in motion.
While construction of the farmhouse was underway, Michael began the search for a winemaker and a farm manager. His love of French wine led him to the accomplished and highly acclaimed winemaker Aaron Pott. In keeping with his pursuit of excellence, Michael teamed Aaron with the acknowledged preeminent farmer in the Valley, David Abreu. With the guidance of these top professionals, Michael purchased only the best grapes from local wineries, obtained the highest-quality winemaking materials and demanded strict adherence to superior winemaking techniques. The result is the success embodied in the Bello Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon.
Our Current Release Wines
2009 RESERVE Cabernet Sauvignon
"The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve bursts onto the palate with expressive dark fruit, leather, licorice, spices and mint. It opens up in the glass with marvelous inner perfume, striking purity in its fruit and fabulous overall balance. Today the tannins are quite firm, but give this a few years to come around and it should drink beautifully. Black cherries, minerals mint and violets linger on the muscular finish." 94+ Points - The Wine Advocate.
