The Beemiller family started Nella Terra Cellars Boutique Winery and Event Center in 2013 as a benefit corporation. Benefit corporations are committed to creating public benefit and sustainable value. It’s a multi-generational family owned and operated business.

The family has owned the property since 1978 and wanted to share its beauty with others. We planted our first vineyard in 2013. The unique microclimate of Nella Terra’s valley provides an ideal environment for growing high quality California grapes. Our vines are grown with a combination of sustainable and organic practices. On our hillside vineyards, we grow varietals that are well suited for Sunol; Viognier, Pinot Noir, Petite Sirah, Primitivo, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Albariño and Syrah. With our prime conditions and terroir, these varietals produce rich and complex flavors when artfully fermented into wine.

We began hosting large private events in 2014. We are honored to have hosted hundreds of weddings and to have the opportunity to be a part of such a memorable, special day in each couple’s lives.
