A 10-year-old Sonoma County winery this week opens its first tasting room outside of California on Denver’s Dairy Block. Blanchard Family Wines, based in Healdsburg and sourcing from vineyards across Sonoma, is bringing eight varietals to Denver to start. The business will also bottle and keg here for the Denver market. Owners Mark and James Blanchard and winemaker Jene Chapanar hope that Denver’s restaurant, brewing, and distilling industries will support a diverse and growing wine culture as well.
