On the second day of touring the Dry Creek region of Sonoma County, we visited Bella Vineyards.
Bella Vineyards is on West Dry Creek Road which is a narrow road running parallel to Dry Creek Road. One of their claims to fame is a cave tunneled under one of their vineyards that is used for barrel aging wine. It also contains the tasting room which lets you get into the spirit of things. They are primarily producers of Zinfandel with some Syrah and Petite Sirah.
They have a very nice picnic area just outside the entrance to the cave. We had a nice lunch of salami, cheese, and bread with a bottle of the Bella 2006 Dry Creek Zinfandel which they kindly opened for us and lent glasses for.
