Welcome

In 2014, the Belmonte’s purchased Wellington Vineyards,which had been in operation for more than 20 years by father and son, John and Peter Wellington. This former winery was known for estate wines produced from over 100-year-old vines and in distribution across the US.

Henry and Vittorio quickly set out to re-brand, change the style of wines, and scale down production. The newly re-branded Wellington Cellars was born in late 2014 with a small lot, hand-crafted wines produced almost exclusively from the 24-acre estate.

The winery and tasting room are situated in the heart of Sonoma Valley amongst vineyards planted to a wide variety of grapes including Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Marsanne, Roussane, Malbec, Merlot, and Grenache, as well as old-vine Zinfandel dating back to 1882.

New construction began in 2017 and includes the addition of a new barrel room and the renovation of the existing tasting room and original open-air barn.

The Belmonte’s will carry on the tradition of Family-owned and operated; with limited production and estate wines. They will produce approximately 3,500 cases of French-Bordeaux wines annually, sold directly to consumers and to their wine club. The new property will allow them to educate guests in the vineyards and share their passion for wine where it all begins.
