July 23rd 2013

We have two events coming up where you can taste our wines and mingle with the wine makers!

Our first event will be held at the Amador County Fair.  The fair runs August 25 through August 28, 2013.  Friday evening, August 26 there will be a wine tasting of many of the local wineries including Bianchini Cellars.  Come out early, enjoy the fair and stop by to see us!

The second event will be held at the Volcano Union Inn.  They will be showcasing one winery each Thursday during the month of August.  Bianchini Cellars will be featured August 8, from 5-6:30pm. Come by and talk to the wine makers, hang out with the locals, ask questions, and stay for dinner to enjoy one of the many meals the Union Inn has to offer. This should be a very fun evening.

See you soon!

2009 Cabernet Sauvignon - Gold - Best of Class
2010 Chardonnay -Bronze

Although Greg has been making wine for over thirty years, this is our second year competing in the commercial category. Last year we entered our 2009 Chardonnay and we won a bronze medal.  We are now 4 for 4 in the Amador County Fair commercial wine competition.

It was a busy weekend for sure! Thanks to all who stopped by our booth and the Amador County Fair wine tasting event. We had fun, met many great people, and were able to share some of our great wine!

Saturday we moved cases down to the wine cellar in order to free up space in the building for this year's bottling and crush. Yes, we moved wine with the vineyard tractor.

Sunday we bottled the 2010 Merlot. We are very pleased with how it's turning out and we're certain it will be a hit. (See pics on the Gallery page).

Come out and visit us at the Amador County Fair Friday evening from 7-9pm. We'll be pouring wine at the fair's wine tasting event. Tickets are $25 plus fair entry. Our 2009 Chardonnay earned a bronze medal. We're excited as this is our first year in the commercial category

In other news we have the online store up and running and have been taking and shipping orders!

Additionally, we're entering in bottling season in order to clear up room for the 2012 grape harvest... We'll be bottling our 2010 Merlot this weekend. It's looking to be a busy fall ahead!

vinyard in the early winter

Yesterday we finished pruning the vineyard and then this morning woke up to snow.... weather is a funny thing. As always be sure to check out Our Wines page to see our current wine availability.

When it comes to winemaking, this time of year tends to be a bit relaxing. we still have a couple more weeks until we plan on pruning the vineyard. It looks as if we're going to get some pretty wet whether soon so hopefully we can time the pruning to avoid any of the late frost that wiped out half the Chardonnay last year.

As many of you are aware we've begun wine sales as of the 1st of the year. People seem to be getting excited about what we're doing and the quality of wine. Be sure to check out Our Wines page to see what we have available.

wine barrels


We just got back from a weekend of racking the 2011 wines. This was the second racking since completion of fermentation. By pumping the "clean" wine off from the top of the sediment we are gradually clarifying the wine. We'll likely do 2 more rackings before bottling time.

Happy New Year!

We spent the Holiday applying capsules and labels (see the added pics in the Gallery section). Basic pricing has been added to Our Wines page as well. Until the online store is up and running all orders can be sent to: sales@bianchinicellars.com. Just tell us what you'd like and we'll contact you to complete the order.


November 21st, 2011

We finally have label approval so expect the release of our first 5 wines within the next month. Hopefully just in time for that last Christmas gift.

In the meantime be sure to check out Our Wines to see what is currently available. Also we're collecting the list of potential wine club members. If you would like to be part of the deals and regular shipments email wineclub@bianchinicellars.com or see the Wine Club page for details.
