Story

TARA BELLA WINERY IS A JEWEL of a winery. Although the vineyard covers only six acres, it produces some of the Russian River Valley’s finest Cabernet Sauvignons. The proof is in the Gold medals. Nearly every vintage has produced at least one.

The winery is owned by Kevin and Wendy Morrow, who attribute much of their success to Kevin’s 32 years of viticulture expertise with taking bud to bottle and Wendy’s experience in hospitality. For the past five years, the Morrows have worked toward attaining a sustainability rating for the winery and vineyard. They now rely solely on solar energy and have made many improvements to achieve the first steps toward certification.

The winery’s most recent releases are two sought-after Cabernet Sauvignons totaling 600 cases. The wines come from separate clones that grow in the same soil and climate conditions. Kevin always creates a small release exclusively for the wine club. This year he created the 2017 Rosé of Cabernet Sauvignon made entirely from estate grapes.

The Morrows’ parties are legendary, and each year they plan a fabulous trip for Tara Bella devotees. In fact, space is quickly filling up for “Barcelona to Bordeaux” scheduled for the spring of 2019.
