Blanchard Family Wines in the Dairy Block of Denver
The Dairy Block in Denver is getting a taste of Sonoma Wine Country as brothers, James and Mark Blanchard, and winemaker Jene Chapanar, open Blanchard Family Wines. Sourcing grapes from different areas around Sonoma county in California, the Blanchard family is starting with eight different varietals with four coming from the Russian River Valley and two from Alexander Valley. The space is small but intimate, moody and approachable giving it a unique feel with room for around 50 at a time. The tasting room menu will spotlight flights, wine by the glass, as well as bottles and growlers to take home. There will be food choices as well provided by Colorado and California cheeses and Il Porcellino and Elevation Meats and sweets from Ruby Jean Patisserie and The Chocolate Therapist.
