Not long ago Jordan Salcito, then a sommelier at Eleven Madison Park, started looking for wines to recommend to friends that embodied her values and that weren’t prohibitively expensive or impossible to find. This made her start taking a critical look at wines available in the market. She realized there were not many wines that met all the criteria she and her friends were looking for in a bottle of wine. So after talking with some winemaker friends Bellus was born.
Bellus is a socially and environmentally conscious wine company that makes organically-grown, terroir-driven wines in collaboration with partner wineries around the globe.
