About Bianchi Winery and Tasting Room
The Bianchi family’s roots in the California wine industry date back to 1974 when Joseph Bianchi and his son, Glenn, invested in a winery and vineyard on the banks of the San Joaquin River in the Central Valley of California. Utilizing the most advanced farming and production technologies, the Bianchi family pioneered its way to producing award-winning wines and quickly grew to become an industry leader.

Looking to advance the family brand to another level in winemaking, Glenn eventually identified Paso Robles as offering terroir that met his specific needs. In 2000, he purchased the 40 acres that would become the home of Bianchi Winery and Tasting Room, the fulfillment of his dream to provide guests with an awe-inspiring sensory experience.

Today the winery’s estate vineyards produce varietal grapes that are best suited for the rolling hills of this micro-climate: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Zinfandel. The winery also produces popular wines from high quality sourced grapes grown in and around Paso Robles and along the Central Coast. These include a Santa Barbara Chardonnay, Arroyo Grande Pinot Grigio, Santa Maria Pinot Noir, Paso Robles Petite Sirah and embracing the Bianchi’s Italian heritage, a Sangiovese and the uncommon Refosco.
