After a successful career in residential construction, Michael Bello set his sights on the wine industry. In 2000, determined to produce a premium Cabernet Sauvignon, Michael purchased a piece of prime real estate located in the Napa Valley’s Rutherford Bench district. He set about constructing a French farmhouse with materials imported from France, incorporating details that had never been seen before in Napa Valley. His dream to produce a quality boutique Cabernet Sauvignon was set in motion. Bello Family Vineyards now produces an impressive lineup of Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Sparkling wine each year.
