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.
Our story begins in 1974; when the wine industry in Margaret River was in start-up mode. John Evans and John Tate saw the potential of the region for producing first-class wines so planted a vineyard they named ‘Redbrook’. The two gentlemen were passionate about creating the best wines they could from their vineyard.
Over four decades later Margaret River ranks amongst the world’s elite wine growing regions. Redbrook is one of the oldest and most prestigious vineyards in Margaret River and is the centerpiece of our property. The passion displayed by our founders has endured and is a key reason why Evans & Tate is one of Australia’s favourite and most successful Margaret River wineries today.

In 2006 born Capri Birra Artigianale, a craft beer unpasteurized and unfiltered. The idea comes to mind during one of the evenings tasting, which even today we use to organize at our family cafè "Bar Grotta Azzurra" in heart of Anacapri.
Leveraging the technical expertise of Mirko, as an agrarian expert and sommelier, assisted by those of design of Paolo, and sales and marketing of Fabrizio, we decided to set up a microbrewery in a warehouse adjacent our family winery, founded by our grandfather in 1909, then given the growing demand, we decide to purchase professional equipments, giving birth to a unique product: Birra di Capri!

Distilled to Master Distiller Pam Heilmann’s exacting specifications, no US1 whiskey is ever released until Pam and the Michter's tasting panel deems it ready.
Michter's specifies wood that has been thoroughly and properly dried, sometimes for as long as 18-36 months, in order to enhance the natural properties of the wood which allow for better flavor and to reduce the levels of tannin imparted to the whiskey.
From his days as a young boy working on a Midwest farm, Brian Cunat developed an interest and respect for agriculture and farming that has grown into a life's passion and a dream. Brian and his wife, Miki, have traveled extensively, touring wineries, walking vineyards and enjoying local cuisines and flavors. Their first visit to the Napa Valley with its natural beauty and welcoming residents, along with the exceptional quality of wines produced from the region gave real inspiration to their family dream.
In 2007, Brian decided to combine his love of wine and his dream of farming by purchasing a 50-acre property in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. Working with an expert team of vineyard managers and winemakers, the property was transformed with Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier.
The Cunat family is involved in the winery operations on a daily basis. The oldest daughter, Neena, has worked in Napa since 2007 and oversees the daily operations as well as the company's public relations efforts. The younger daughter has been instrumental in the designs of the product labels and collateral materials. Additionally, Brian's brother, John, and the extended Cunat family are supportive investors in Cunat Family Vineyards as well as active brand advocates.
Each Materra wine is a perfect expression of the land, the grapes, the passion the Cunat family has invested in each bottle and the unyielding quality delivered consistently by the growing conditions and terroir of the Napa Valley. Brian and the entire Cunat family look forward to sharing their dreams with you over a glass of Materra.

Trujillo Cabernet Sauvignon is my latest endeavor and a personal labor of love. Inspiration for this wine traces back to 1982, when I first arrived in Napa Valley from my family’s farm in Colorado. I grew up helping my father year-round in the fields, and learned early on about how soil, climate, pests and critters affect living, growing plants.
After three decades of winemaking experience in all aspects of the business—from vineyard cultivation and irrigation digging, to cooperage selection and blending—I’m proud to now offer my own namesake Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine is a realization of my lifelong passion for crafting red wine, an expression of all that I’ve learned and deeply value about winemaking in the Napa Valley.
Growing and harvesting grapes across diverse terroirs, from lush valley floor to hillside slopes, contributes the exceptional balance and structure I look for in a wine. Maybe my farming roots are why the vineyards feel like home and the growers, extended family. Fruit for my label comes from some of Napa’s finest, including Herb Lamb Vineyards in St. Helena, Gary Morisoli in Rutherford, Healy Vineyards in St. Helena, and Henry Brothers Ranch on Howell Mountain.
