Atop the valley’s north end, always-fun Bella has cool caves built into the hillside. The estate-grown grapes include 110-year-old vines from Alexander Valley. The focus is on big reds – Zinfandel and Syrah – but there’s terrific rosé (good for barbecues), and late-harvest Zinfandel (great with brownies). The wonderful vibe and dynamic staff make Bella special. Bottles are $25 to $48.
