Rancho Bello

Planted in 1988, Rancho Bello is located within a few yards of Ottimino Vineyard and consequently benefits from the same soil and coastal influences. Owner Albert Bello planted all 4000 vines himself, using budwood obtained from a single old vine Zinfandel vineyard in Alexander Valley. Unlike Ottimino vineyard, Rancho Bello’s vines consist of a single clone with no rootstock; over the years they have adapted to the area with ease and produce unparalled quality fruit. At 89 years of age Albert still tends the vineyard himself, working the land and greeting each day as a new opportunity to live life to the fullest.
