The Bianchi family of wines ranges from the familiar favorites Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Petite Sirah, Syrah and Zinfandel - to more unfamiliar gems such as Italian Refosco and Barbera.

The Bianchi family has a long history of involvement in the wine Industry, dating back to 1974 when Glenn and his father, Joseph, invested in a winery and vineyard on the banks of the San Joaquin River in the Central Valley of California

It was Glenn Bianchi's lifelong ambition to produce ultra-premium wines with finesse and complexity. After searching throughout California for the finest terroir to satisfy his requirements, he chose 40 acres in Paso Robles. In 2000, Glenn planted varietals suitable for the Paso Robles terroir, built a state-of-the-art winery and a welcoming Tasting Room overlooking a serene Koi lake. Utilizing the best fruit from the estate vineyard and select vineyards throughout the Central Coast combined with the talents of Bianchi winemaker Tom Lane, Bianchi is producing acclaimed wines and establishing Bianchi as one of the premier wineries in Paso Robles.

Utilizing the most advanced farming and production technologies, the Bianchi family quickly grew to become an industry leader producing award winning wines.

In pursuit of his lifelong ambition, Glenn set his sites on finding a new vineyard and winery location. After searching throughout California for the finest terroir to meet his requirements, he settled on Paso Robles. Glenn was impressed with the regions outstanding reputation for quality wines and its natural beauty.

In January of 2000, Bianchi purchased 40 acres of vineyards on the East side of Paso Robles and built a showcase winery and spectacular hospitality center on the property.

Situated on a gentle rise, the new Bianchi Winery has a commanding view looking west over undulating vineyards dotted with ancient oaks. The state of the art stainless steel fermentation tanks provide the winemaker the latest computerized monitoring system and the option to select limited production wines. Our selection comes from vineyards just North of the winery in the cooler climate of Monterey, where the grapes enjoy a long season of enrichment.

This is a classic Sauvignon Blanc featuring a lovely white peach and guava notes and a lively finish. Can't miss with black cod in lime vinaigrette.
