Bedell Cellars is a Hot Brand!


BEDELL CELLARS, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary, got something else to toast about as well: Selection as one of the “Top 10 Hottest Small Brands in the World” by Wine Business Monthly and WineBusiness.com. Founded by Susan and Kip Bedell—who long ago was dubbed the “Master of Merlot” by the Wine Spectator—the winery is now owned by Michael Lynne, co-chairman of New Line Cinema (Lord of the Rings Trilogy, among others). While still specializing in Merlot, Bedell has branched out with some other fine wines as well, and has a particular vision of wine as art, and with art, as evident from its labels and the art in its tasting room.

Congratulations to all on well-deserved recognition.
