Blankiet Estate was created in 1996 by Claude Blankiet and his wife, Katherine. From 46 acres on the foothills of the Mayacamas range, 16 acres of vineyard has been developed by renowned viticulturist David Abreu.
The wines are handcrafted utilizing Old World Chinon-style methods from the Loire Valley. In order to obtain optimum flavor and proper balance of sugar and acid, the fermentation is carried out in small bin lots.
We grow, make and sell small quantities of premium estate grown hand made red wines blends of merlot and cabernet sauvignon, that showcase the rich terroir of the Pritchard Hill area in the Vaca mountains which form the eastern side of Napa Valley.
