Bellante Family Winery is a boutique winery founded in 2000 by our winemaker and his wife, Chuck and Sheri Bellante. Our award winning wines focus on cool climate, single vineyard, Santa Barbara County fruit; specifically Viogniers, Pinot Noirs, and Rhone Reds. Chuck’s background in Chemical Process Engineering gives him a foundation for extracting all he can from these delicate grapes. The result is delicious, age-worthy wines that belong on any dinner table and in the most discriminating wine cellars. After 20 years in the dental industry as a RDA, Sheri now enjoys creating and producing events within our Mission Viejo, CA Tasting Room and handles the social media marketing. Her events are the talk of the town and usually sell out quickly.
