Immersive Sound Experience at Bell Mountain Ranch

Explore the sights and sounds of our property through this 90-minute private tasting experience at Bell Mountain Ranch. Guests will be self-guided through an audio experience developed by local sound artist, Hugh Livingston. Following the walking tour, our wine educator will guide the guests through a flight of five current release and member-exclusive wines thoughtfully paired with a seasonal, local cheese plate.

Bell Mountain is the heart of everything we do at Medlock Ames. In the spirit of preservation and sustainability, we leave the majority of our 338 acres in their natural state. The working estate includes 50 acres of vineyards, 650 olive trees, an orchard, and a market garden for seasonal vegetables and flowers, along with our state-of-the-art winery and barrel cellar.

Taste

After your stroll, enjoy six current releases and member-exclusive wines with one of our wine educators. Thoughtfully paired with a seasonal, local cheese plate alongside market items from our organic gardens. Most of our wines are crafted in small batches due to the limited number of planted vines on the property.

A destination for Cabernet lovers. Alexander Valley is home to beautiful, rich, and complex soils along with warm afternoons which are ideal conditions for this grape variety.
bullet
Visit the 100-year-old Historic Healdsburg Tasting Room, only about 20 minutes from the Ranch. Once a country store turned gas station, turned biker bar. We renovated the building in 2006.

Medlock Ames Winery
Since the 1990’s we have been pioneers in the area by farming organically with no artificial chemicals, fertilizers or pesticides used to grow our wines. Instead, we promote healthy, living soil that nurtures, feeds and protects our vines and embrace age-old, low impact farming methods, like crop diversity, allowing the vineyard to shine through in the fruit.
