We had a great wine tasting experience at Bucher. We are huge fans of their Pommard Pinot Noir! Highly recommend J.Bucher wines for any serious Pinot Noir or Rose buyers!
John and Diane Bucher make truly delicious wines made from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in the traditional Burgundy style.
I love this style of winemaking because the resulting wines are elegant and more food friendly when compared to New World style fruit bombs.
Chefs like Thomas Keller (The French Laundry) and Alice Waters (Chez Panisse) prefer to pair their masterful, culinary creations with wines made in this style.
The Bucher Pinots are structured, and balanced, and provide layers of flavors as only the best wines do. The Chardonnays are our favorite summertime sipping.
The Buchers themselves are warm hosts, great teachers, and obviously expert vintners. They are as gracious as their wines are delicious.
A visit to their vineyard, and now to the new tasting facility is the only "must do" on our annual trip from Chicago.
Prepare yourself for incredible hospitality from the proprietors, Diane and John, and outstanding wines. Bucher produces 2 Chardonnays, 1 Pinot Noir, and a Rosé of Pinot Noir. Highly recommend the Rio Oro Chardonnay and the Three-Sixty Pinot! Both times I have visited I left with a big batch of wine. Even joined the Founder's Wine Club... looking forward to member events!
