This quaint, rustic winery is tucked away in the bucolic hills of Healdsburg. It's a relaxed and welcoming vibe here, with lots of spots to lounge and picnic (you can bring your own food to pair with their wines), including large adirondak chairs strewn throughout the property, and communcal picnic tables stacked with games. Pours of note here are usually syrahs and zinfandels—the late-harvest zin is particularly impressive, and is paired with a dark chocolate sea salt peanut butter cup. You may arrive to live music playing (think mandolins, banjos, folk tunes), and there will almost definitely be dogs and children lounging in the grass.
How to visit: The Bella tasting room is open 11am to 4:30pm daily. Tastings are $10 per person, and groups larger than 8 are not accepted.
In short: Casual and welcoming; dessert-friendly zins; family (and pet) friendly
