As is typical on farms throughout Europe, Bella Vista Ranch provides the home to not only olive orchard and mill, but grape vines and a winery. The vineyard consists of 2 blocks, growing Sangiovese and Cabernet Franc. Both are great varietals for Texas weather. Bella Vista Cellars crafts country wines in the old-world tradition. When you visit the ranch, you can enjoy a flight of wines in our tasting room, relax with a glass of wine at a picnic table or you take our formal, guided tour with a close-up look at small-scale, Old World wine-making as well as the overall production of olive oil.
We are a boutique winery with an exclusive offering of between 4 and 7 wines for tasting and purchase. You can enjoy various wines sourced exclusively from our Estate vineyards or locally Texas-grown grapes including: Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc, Viognier, and Blackberry or Raspberry wines when you visit the tasting room. (Wines available for tasting change as our small volumes sell out and new vintages are ready for sale.)
