Michael Bello


Legend has it that once a champion always a champion; because to settle for less is not acceptable. This clearly exemplifies Michael Bello.

Emphasizing an unmatched mix of hard work, quality and high standards, Michael started his career with a residential construction company. Passionate about living life to its fullest, his remarkable business achievements enabled him to pursue two lifelong dreams; to own a champion racehorse and produce a champion Napa Valley wine.

In 2000, determined to produce a premium Cabernet Sauvignon, Michael purchased a piece of prime real estate located in the Napa Valley’s Rutherford Bench district. He set about constructing a French farmhouse with materials imported from France, incorporating details that had never been seen before in Napa Valley. His dream to produce a quality boutique Cabernet Sauvignon was set in motion.

A master at attaining his goals, and driven by his passion, Michael set another dream in motion. In late 2001 he purchases a Thoroughbred racehorse, Megahertz, and brings her to the California stable of trainer Bobby Frankel. This young filly is the beginning of yet another champion story for Bello.
