One of the most successful and storied wineries is the Bianchi Winery and Tasting Room.

Going back to 1974, Glenn and his father, Joseph provided capital and invested in a winery and vineyard in the Central Valley of California.

Due to his dream and ambition, Glenn decided to find a new vineyard and winery location and ended in Paso Robles which Glenn picked based on the excellent capabilities of the region for producing a high quality and variety of wines.

Through the use of farming and production technologies, the Bianchi Winery and Tasting Room grew widely and became an industry leader that produces award winning wines. On January 2000, the Bianchi family bought 40 acres of Vineyard in Paso Robles and built a new tasting room.

The wines are made from special grapes which are purchased from Bianchi estate and from other expert growers in Paso Robles and Central Coast. When to visit, select and enjoy your favorite and amazing variety of wines such as 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, 2013 Geste, 2015 Chardonnay in Paso Robles.
