Wine Tasting
Bianchi Winery and Tasting Room
 Three Generations offering two destinations
Bianchi Winery and Tasting Room is the product of three generations' dreams coming to frui- tion. With two destinations offering delectable wines in Paso Robles and Laguna Beach, California, there is little reason for wine lovers to miss out.
In Paso Robles, Bianchi’s tast- ing room offers visitors a tranquil, inviting, family, and dog-friendly atmosphere. Situated at the heart of a 40-acre vineyard, Bianchi is known for its waterfall-fed lake stocked with koi, amazing views, 4.9-star Vineyard House getaway, picnic areas, events and as a wed- ding venue.
Attention to detail and craft- ing fruit-forward wines that wow has always been at the forefront
of Bianchi’s
program for
creating el-
egant award-
wines. The
current wine
list features
Reserve and
wines that
are both
complex and
diverse. Bianchi Signature Selection includes: 2019 Sauvi- gnon Blanc, 2018 Chardonnay, 2018 Pinot Noir, 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon, and 2018 Petite Sirah. The Reserve flight features: 2019 Chardonnay, 2019 GSM (the Geste), 2019 Zinfandel and Sangiovese blend (Duality), 2018 Cabernet Franc, and 2018 Caber- net Sauvignon.
All of Bianchi’s grapes are har- vested by hand under the cover of moonlight to provide the best quality possible. The winemaking team is made up of vintners who look at every variable from the soil quality and composition to cluster structure and fruit devel- opment choosing the best of each harvest to deliver award-winning
wines year in and year out. Joseph Bianchi took his first steps into winemaking in 1974, his son Glenn Bianchi, continued the legacy in 2000, and now Beau Bianchi con- tinues bring- ing the dreams
of tomorrow to fruition.
Bianchi is also offering amaz-
ing charcuterie and wine pairings featuring Bianchi’s Perfect Pairing Boxes made in partnership with Holly’s Catering and Charcuterie and carefully curated by staff. More development is just around the corner. In addition to the new Laguna Beach Bianchi Tasting Room, the family is upgrading the Paso Robles property wedding and event spaces.
Bianchi Winery’s Paso Robles Tasting Room is located at 3380 Branch Rd and open Thursday
