Bello is the story of a young boy with a dream, he wanted to be a champion. He became very successful with his residential construction business, but that was not enough. In 2000 he purchased a prime property in the Rutherford Bench district of Napa and began construction of this amazing site. He hired David Abreu as his vineyard manager – do I need to say more? He also purchased a thoroughbred racehorse, Megahertz, and brings her to the California stable of trainer Bobby Frankel. This young filly is the beginning of yet another champion story for Bello, but we are not talking horses today. He also hired ace-winemaker (of the year in 2012) Aaron Pott as his winemaker and the team was complete!

The 2011 vintage required an experienced winemaker’s deft hand. Winemakers with experience outside California’s ideal vineyard climate produced wines of great complexity and elegance that will be excellent for early drinkers. The 2011 Bello Chardonay offers up gorgeous aromas of pear, melon, peach, toasted almond and vanilla. On the palate the wine’s richness attacks you instantly. You’ll encounter gorgeous flavors of lychee, creme brulee, orange, toffee, with almond and melon harmonizing into a long finish. The wine was fermented on indigenous yeast in high-end French Oak Barrels. The full malolactic fermentation gives the wine great richness without being overpowering. Small production.
