Oro Bello wine is hand-crafted with care from high-quality fruit that has come from “hidden gem” AVA vineyards. This means we have no need to sweeten our wines or add gum arabic (used to increase mouthfeel) or DMDC. Our desire is to bring excellent wines to anyone, regardless of age or income, who are eager to find an additive-free, crafted wine at an everyday price.

Chalk Hill AVA, CA
30% of our fruit comes from Piziali Vineyard in the Chalk Hill AVA, Sonoma. The AVA is named for the chalky white ash that is volcanic in origin, which characterizes the soils. Piziali is distinctive by its size (only a 5-acre lot) and its Northeastern facing direction, which makes it slightly cooler, thereby allowing the grapes to hold on to their acid. The soils here are very shallow which encourages a low yield - full concentration of flavor and nicely balanced acid.
Lodi AVA, CA
The 70% of the fruit that comes from Lodi is located at the northern edge of the San Joaquin Valley, east of San Francisco Bay. Lodi enjoys a similar climate and growing conditions to its coastal neighbors Napa and Sonoma. The two major rivers originating in the Sierra Nevada mountain range that feeds the Lodi appellation have brought soils rich in granitic-based minerals that lend complex flavors to the wines of Lodi.
