The Winery
The rustic style tasting room is surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens and a picturesque pond. While tasting wines you can shop in their extensive gift shop and then take a stroll through the incredible gardens, a great way to spend the afternoon.

The Vineyards
The estate has both Cabernet and Syrah vines planted at the estate. They purchase additional grapes from Amador and El Dorado County to round out the selection.

The Wines
Although the estate has a certain Tuscan flair, the wine varietals represent not only Italy, but France as well. The wines are all handmade, in small batches with a view towards expressing the varietal characteristics.

The Winemaker
The winemaker at La Bella Rosa Vineyards is owner Ron Peterson. Mr. Peterson was a general contractor before taking up viticulture and winemaking fulltime.
