My Story

Meet Twylla Bell

Owner Twylla BellOriginally from northeastern Indiana, I moved to Texas in 1982. I joined the ranks of financial services working at Savings & Loans, auto, finance and mortgage servicing companies in management and leading change management initiatives. I married Michael, a native Texan, in 1992 and a year later we welcomed our daughter Haley to our family.

Throughout this time, I continued to explore my artistic side focusing on watercolors, acrylics, and oil pastels. Pursuing other career opportunities that would incorporate my creative background and innovation, I found Bottle & Bottega. The wine and art concept along with the operational structure and strong branding of the Bottle & Bottega franchise convinced me that this was the right fit.

I am also a member of various running clubs locally and nationally, participating in 5Ks to marathons. I enjoy the race as much as the great camaraderie of my running family.
