ABOUT US | VINEYARDS
Boasting optimal soils and a Mediterranean climate ideal for growing premium varietal grapes, the Paso Robles A.V.A. has emerged as one of California's preeminent wine regions. Located halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, only 20 miles inland from the coast, the region enjoys warm summer days, cooled by evening marine influenced temperatures that can drop as much as 50 degrees. These viticultural attributes enticed Glenn Bianchi to purchase 50 acres of premium vineyards in January of 2000, for the new Bianchi Winery.
The Bianchi estate vineyard is comprised of four different and distinct ranches. The 13 acre Lakeside Ranch has clay-loam soils, ideal for the ranch's Cabernet Sauvignon, while the 19 acre Zen Ranch is comprised mainly of sandy loam where the Zinfandel thrives. The Creekside Ranch and Sunrise Ranch are host to Syrah and Merlot respectively. The estate fruit is allowed to develop slowly in indirect sunlight in order to achieve the desired balance of sugar and acidity.
Glenn Bianchi and winemaker Tom Lane also source grapes from select Central Coast vineyards: Petite Sirah from the Peck Ranch in Paso Robles, Pinot Noir from York Mountain, Chardonnay from Edna Valley and Cabernet Franc from Jim Smoot Vineyards. The grapes from these premier Central Coast vineyards are the foundation for producing the Bianchi Signature Collection of wines.
