  • About
    Bella Luna stands as a quaint, family-owned winery nestled in the heart of the Central Coast. Over the past 26 years, we've curated a legacy of crafting exquisite, terroir-driven wines with a dedication to minimalistic winemaking. Our dry-farmed vineyards are meticulously hand-picked, showcasing the authenticity of the Central Coast in every bottle.

    At Bella Luna, we take pride in our hands-off approach to winemaking. Our wines undergo fermentation using indigenous yeasts and remain unfined and unfiltered, allowing the true character of the grapes to shine. We specialize in the art of single-vineyard, small-batch production, featuring varietals such as Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Zinfandel.

    Our Estate Vineyard and Winery serve as both a backyard and playground for the third generation, ensuring that everything utilized in both locations is not only safe for human consumption but also for our beloved four-legged friends. Join us on a journey through the Central Coast, where passion and tradition converge in every sip of Bella Luna's exceptional wines.

    "You can make bad wine from good grapes, but you can't make good wine from bad grapes." - Kevin Healey, Owner.
