Bella Winery Dry Creek California
Best Dry Creek Winery With Delicious Wines
Why you must visit Bella Winery: After numerous visits to Dry Creek exploring Wine Country, it’s fair to say Bella Winery has become one of my favorite wineries to visit. This is for various reasons. The first, my dear friend and J.S.F. Board of Advisors member Katherine is a member so we’ve enjoyed various Wine Club Pick up parties and the perks that come along with membership. Second, over the various visits I’ve gotten to know the team who are all awesome. They’re super nice, friendly and accommodating which to me is just as important, if not more than the actual wine. Third, the delicious wine! Bella has two labels. Their own Bella label and also Ten Acre which is made by Wine Maker Michael Zardo.
What kind of wines do they make: Bella is known for their delicious Reds, particularly their Pinot Noirs and their Zinfandels where Ten Acre (to me) is all about their Whites. I’m particularly partial to their FABULOUS Chardonnays (remember you’re talking to a Chardonnay girl).
What else is great in the area to check out: All in all, you can’t go wrong at Bella Winery or Ten Acres. Before heading to the Winery swing by the Dry Creek General Store for picnic provisions so you can bring lunch or a snack to enjoy with your wine tasting at Bella. I love to grab lunch, do the tasting (which is free for members and up to 3 guests) and then we’ll grab a bottle of wine to enjoy outside picnic style while relaxing and playing games. 9711 West Dry Creek Road, Healdsburg, CA 95448.
