The classically elegant wines you’ll taste at Bianchi Winery and Tasting Room in Paso Robles are the culmination of the dreams of three generations of one California family spanning four decades. The late Joseph Bianchi was an innovator and renaissance man who experimented with wine-in-a-can and wine coolers, well… before they were cool.

Glenn Bianchi held strong to a vision of producing ultra-premium varietal wines that delivered finesse and complexity. The Paso Robles terroir helped him realize that mission when he purchased the 40 acres that you will see on your next visit. State-of-the art winery, fireplace-equipped wine tasting room and the Koi-stocked Lake helped him complete the picture and translate his dream into your experience. Today it is considered one of the best Paso Robles wineries to visit.

And finally, Beau Bianchi has fully embraced the passion, vision and commitment of his Grandfather and Father to make Bianchi Winery and Tasting Room the world-class wine destination it is today.

Even as Bianchi's Paso Robles Winery expands, it will always stay true to its roots.

Winemaker Tom Lane sees to that. With little human intervention and the finest fruit Mother Nature provides the Estate and select Central Coast sources, he’s produced a boldly inviting portfolio of wines.

The Bianchis invite you to come and enjoy our Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Petite Sirah, Syrah and legendary Paso Robles Zinfandel. Try our Refosco and Barbera, wines that honor our Italian heritage. Take a tour, feed the Koi, sail a boat, or try the accommodations at Vineyard House. It’s all here in the heart of beautiful Paso Robles.

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.

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 of producing ultra-premium wines, Glenn set his sights 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 region's 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 make select, limited production wines. Similarly, the new barrel room for the French and American oak has the capacity to allow blending and aging of small lots.

The Bianchi Tasting Room is the fulfillment of Glenn Bianchi's dream to provide a great sensory experience for visitors to the property.

Nestled in the estate vineyards, the facility rises above a waterfall fed lake that gently laps the stone terraces. The soaring glass walls take advantage of the peaceful surroundings from every angle.

Its adjacent vineyards support the belief that it is vital to grow only those varieties of grapes which are best suited to the particular aspect of the land: such as soil, exposure and climate. That is why the Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Syrah and Merlot are planted in the winery's sloping vineyards. These varietals make up our sought after Heritage Selection.

Our Signature Selection wines are made from grapes purchased from the highly recognized vineyards adjoining the Bianchi estate and from other premium growers in and around Paso Robles and the Central Coast. Our long and close relationship with the best growers assures us access to each harvest's top quality grapes. Our Signature selection comprise of Edna Valley Chardonnay, Paso Robles Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc. Come and sample some of our limited released wines, such as Sangiovese, and Italian varietal grown here in Paso Robles called Refosco.

It is here at our new home in Paso Robles that the Bianchi renaissance is taking place as we expand into the super and ultra premium categories with estate grown and hand crafted wines.
