Joe Healy | Joe, our director of production, joined the Bella team for the 2001 vintage after being awarded degrees in both Viticulture and Enology from Fresno State University. Joe's hands-on approach in the winery and vineyards, along with his perceptive palate in blending trials, complements the talents and experience of Michael Dashe. Since 2001, Joe has dedicated himself to making the best wines possible from Bella's many unique, old-vine blocks of zinfandel, syrah and petite sirah.
Nicolas Cornejo | Clendenen Vineyard Management With his experience in farming vineyards throughout Sonoma County for over three decades, Nicholas has established himself as a distinguished leader in farming and agriculture. Nicolas and his team’s intense passion for the land and care comes through in everything they do, which makes them a perfect fit with Bella’s conscientious farming practices.
Scott and Lynn Adams | Although our technical education began with viticulture and enology classes at the Santa Rosa Junior College and University of California at Davis, our real experience comes from being surrounded by talent like Joe, Ryan and Nicolas. And whether we're leaf pulling in the vineyards, doing punch downs or running blending trials, we enjoy taking part in every step of the winemaking process throughout the year.
