Blanchard Family Wines is dedicated to creating limited production, hand-crafted, artisan wines sourced from the top vineyards in the Sonoma Valley. We showcase the world-class appellations of the Russian River, Chalk Hill, Dry Creek, and Alexander Valley, and most of our wines are either 100% varietal or single-vineyard products. Our family roots blend into our company philosophy, from our logo to our product names. The symbol used as our company logo was created by the founders’ father, Steve, as a tribute to the family tradition. The two interlinking Bs in the center represent the two Blanchard brothers joined in a common bond. This not only represents the sets of brothers up through James and Mark but continues to James’ two boys, Jackson and Cash ( for which two of the wines are named ), the fifth generation of Blanchard Boys. The outer B of the symbol takes a feminine form to pay tribute to the mother’s role in shaping the generations of Blanchard Boys.
Blanchard Family Wines was fortunate to cross paths with Jene Chapanar, a veteran winemaker and friend to many in the Sonoma wine-making community. We procure an array of prime fruit through Jene’s tutelage and apply a simple but classic philosophy to our winemaking; allow the vineyard, varietal, and vintage to express their individual characteristics while applying gentle winemaking and guidance along the way. Jene is a craftsman, and the wines Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Rose, Sparkling Wine, and dessert wines showcase the respect and passion we hold for Sonoma County and its bounty of superb vineyard sites and varietals. Each year is different, and Mother Nature runs the show, but we accommodate and acclimate to her whims to create wines of distinction and typicity. Less is more, and good winemaking is always a lesson in restraint. So please enjoy our wines, and welcome to the family.
