Sneak peak at Amy Lieberfarb of Sip on This Juice’s Bucher Wines Blog post….
We are so excited to share a preview of our friend Amy Lieberfarb of Sip on This Juice’s blog post about Bucher Wines. For the full post visit, Sip on This Juice’s website here.
“As you can probably tell from this blog, I am a big fan of summer and all that comes with it. Those long summer days just beg for us all to head outside and make the most of the season. That’s why I love finding time to eat outside in the summer months, whether it’s a summer beach picnic, an al fresco dinner or just a casual summer bbq. Add some wine and a few beers, and you’re set! Recently, a friend introduced me to Bucher Wines, a small boutique family owned winery in Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley. So, when I received a few of their wines in the mail, I decided to invite a couple friends over for a casual summer bbq to try them.”
“Since planting their first block in Russian River Valley in 1997, the Bucher Family has been passionate about growing Pinot Noir for exceptional local wineries including Williams Selyem, Merry Edwards, Ramey Wine Cellars, En Route, and more. In 2011, the family started making their own wines as well. See our videos below for a virtual tour of this amazing property!!”
“With the help of their winemaker Adam Lee, well known from Siduri Wines, Bucher released their first wines in the spring of 2013. The inaugural release of the estate-grown 2011 Pinot Noir was very limited, only 160 cases produced, and 90 cases of 2012 Russian River Chardonnay. Small batch wineries, run by passionate people.
Both wines quickly sold out!! The second vintage gave them more opportunity to showcase the exceptional fruit they farm and really show off the individual terroir characteristics in the glass.”

“Taste their line up of estate-grown Russian River Valley Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Rosé wines at Grand Cru Custom Crush in Sonoma County, California. Specifically, the city of Windsor.”
“Diane is often found pouring wine for restaurateurs, retailers, and public events. Husband, John, is usually busy working on the family farm (which his parents founded) or standing beside his beautiful wife pouring for guests at wine events.”
“I was also honored to be invited to the family home to tour, sip and chat with Diane on a future date. Which of course I did! It was a blast and like I said above, it was one of those intimate, off the grid, family winery experiences that many of us seek.
Wearing too many hats to list, Diane keeps things moving at Bucher Wines. Her primary goal is to connect with as many folks as possible, getting them to taste the Bucher Vineyard wines… and that she does… Like a champ!!
She is much fun to sip and hang with. I also enjoy seeing her around town at events and also at local parties. And you know we love our wine shindigs here in Sonoma County so luckily, I get to visit with her a lot.”

Amy loved the Bucher Three Sixty Pinot Noir so much that she took it with her on vacation to Palm Springs! Talk about a fan. Thanks to Amy for sharing her thoughts and insight about Bucher Wines on her lovely blog. We love sharing our wines with other wine lovers and appreciate the support and kind words!
