Blankiet Estate vineyards and winery are located on the western foothills of the Mayacamas mountain range over-looking Yountville in the Napa Valley of California. Created in 1996 by Claude and Katherine Blankiet, sixteen acres have been developed by renowned viticulturist David Abreu.
The vineyards, known as Paradise Hills, are stunningly beautiful with gorgeous views of the valley. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot are planted on volcanic soil. Merlot is planted on a deep layer of alluvial clay deposited by streams draining the mountain range high above. Sustainable farming is practiced and the human hand is the connection between vines and wines.
Our artisanal production amounts to less than five hundred cases of two flagship Proprietary Red Wines: The “Estate Paradise Hills” is predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon with various percentages of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The “Rive Droite Paradise Hills” is a Saint Emilion inspired assemblage of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. We also produce a small quantity of a delicious Rosé, barrel fermented and aged in new French oak. Lastly, a companion red wine is assembled from barrels that did not get selected for the flagship cuvées. Both these wines are produced under our “Prince of Hearts” label. Our first seven vintages were made by the legendary Helen Turley. Then for a few years Martha McClellan Levy assisted by world famous oenologist Michel Rolland oversaw vinification. For the past two years our director of winemaking has been Denis Malbec, former cellar master at Château Latour in Bordeaux. Vinification at Blankiet Estate is done in a state of the art winery located on the property. Our wines are aged in our deep underground caves for two years in 100% new French oak barrels and bottled without fining or filtration.
Robert Parker validated our terroir, stating that the wines we produce “are world class, combining the extraordinary power of the site with unbelievable elegance and definition”. (The Wine Advocate)
