Bello Family Vineyards
Napa Valley AVA
Michael Bello has had a lifelong passion for winemaking, the wine business, and the Napa Valley lifestyle, and he has built his dream setting with the boutique Bello Family Vineyards Winery.
Situated along Napa Valley’s Rutherford Bench District is the beautiful Bello Family Vineyards estate, with a uniquely intimate setting of a classically styled French farmhouse surrounded by highly esteemed vines and award-winning fruit. Proprietor Michael Bello has had a lifelong passion for winemaking, the wine business, and the Napa Valley lifestyle, and he has built his dream setting with the boutique Bello Family Vineyards Winery.
Before realizing his dream, Bello had remarkable achievements in the construction industry, and further success as he acquired a number of restaurants and several commercial properties. In 2000, Bello was ready and determined to produce premium wine in Napa Valley and purchased a prime piece of real estate in the Rutherford District, which is known for its superior wine-growing conditions.
His love of French wine led him to two of Napa Valley’s foremost experts in French viticulture and winemaking (David Abreu and Aaron Pott), and together they have been working with the highest quality winemaking materials while following superior winemaking techniques to produce their limited and highly esteemed bottlings. Bello is also joined by his wife Nancy and two sons, Stephen and Chris, who all lend a hand to the Bello Family Vineyards’ small collection of premium, elegant wines.
