The Story

Temecula Valley wine fans should be familiar with Bel Vino Winery, which sits high atop Rancho California Road. New in name, this mid-size winery was formally Stuart Cellars! Bel Vino offers a full line of quality varietals and vintages, including their exclusive Stuart Cellars premium label, popular with the Southern California wine enthusiast. This charming winery lives on a picturesque hill overlooking the valley; it offers a delightful venue for an intimate wine country wedding and boasts an expansive lawn, which plays host to a variety of summer events and concerts.

The Wines

Bel Vino Winery is known for offering unique and exciting red varietals, such as:

  • Lagrein
  • Malbec
  • Zinfandel
  • Syrah
  • Petite Verdot


Other suggested wines to taste include Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Sauvignon Blanc.  View Bel Vino’s full wine list here.

For maximum flavor, aroma and texture, all Bel Vino red wines are unfiltered.  The winery is proud to use French and American oak barrels for the best wood influences in aging.


Upcoming Events

Hilltop Summertime BBQ:
6:30 – 10:00 P.M. Saturday, June 30, 2012

Bel Vino’s annual Barbecue event starts at twilight and finishes under the stars at the Winery’s outdoor concert venue. International award winning Chef Jorge Alvarado will directly oversee the preparation of this lavish barbecue and wine feast.
Barbecue preparation starts with the best cuts of beef, pork and chicken. Each type of meat gets its own exotic and flavorful marinade treatment and then is wrapped in either agave or banana leaves. All meats are smoked 12 hours over barrel and grape wood and served with roasted pistachio, habañera salsa and escabeche onions.
The meal is generously complemented with a fresh vegetable & fruit station, a grilled vegetable station, a dessert station and two glasses of premium Bel Vino wines, with your choice of red or white.
As night falls, take to the dance floor with the sounds of “Shoot for Tuezday” covering the best in rock n’ roll from the 1960s through today.
