What an unexpected surprise! Bel Lago has some of the best wine that I have had in a long time. Patrick was an excellent server that introduced us to some of the best red wine that I have found. The Pinot Noirs were out of this world! The Tempesta red wine was as smooth as velvet. We were so impressed... More

I discovered this gem of a vineyard and tasting room last fall. I have since made 3 additional visits and am in love with their Gewurtztraminer. I am a wine lover and it is without question my favorite white wine ever! My visit last week to pick up a case included tasting their newly released Rose which was excellent as... More

This was our first time visiting Bel Lago but definitely will not be our last. We visited on a Tuesday so was relatively quiet. The gentleman server seemed to be very well-informed about the grapes, asked about our preferences and offered generous tastings. No sampling fees! We left with several different bottles and look forward to enjoying them at home.

We've been purchasing the most delicious Bel Lago Pinot Grigio/Chardonnay blend for several years, and finally made the trip to the actually winery. We loved it! The energy that the server had kept us excited about what we were tasting. We must have tasted 10 different varieties, including a few that were vinted for just a short season. And no... More

We stop every year, always buy several bottles of wine, a red and a few whites. Love the tastings, the staff is knowledgeable. It is a small winery and a bit out of the way (beautiful setting), we are happy we discovered it!

This was the second winery of our tour and not my least favorite, but far from my favorite. Maybe we just came at a bad time, but the older gentleman working the tasting counter seemed very frazzled and stressed, although it was just us and another couple. He simply poured our drinks but never explained the wines or really even... More

I always stop by Bel Lago winery when I'm in the area. This week I had the added pleasure of meeting Moses the winery dog. He added so much to my experience since I'm a real a dog lover and I was missing my dog so much while on vacation. Our wine steward, John was so knowlegable and friendly he... More

We stopped in for a tasting and were very pleased. The owner came out and gave us a tasting of some Riesling he was just ready to bottle. He stayed and talked to us past closing time. What a nice guy!! The wine was also good. We like big bold reds and he had a tasty Pinot Noir for us.... More

We went with a tour group, and the owner personally took us on a tour of the vineyard, and explained to us about the different varieties of grapes that they grow. They make an interesting wine, that is a combination of Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio. I highly recommend it. The views here are fabulous.
