Rooted in Rutherford and driven by expertise and a creative vision, Bella Union was founded in 2012 by Far Niente Wine Estates. We celebrate the beautiful union of mastery and artistry by showcasing different expressions of Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon, world-renowned for its consistently smooth and structured style. Our estate serves as our cornerstone, where we provide an immersive customer experience that inspires creativity and fosters a sense of connection, resulting in a beautiful union of wine, people and unforgettable memories. The 2022 growing season proved to be remarkably consistent, and fortunately for us, our meticulous farming practices ensured our readiness for the unexpected September heat spike. Favorable fall temperatures allowed the grapes to achieve full ripeness. This vintage promises to evolve into an exquisite wine that will captivate wine enthusiasts and collectors for years to come.
