- Organic Dairy Farm
- Single Clone Pinot Noirs
- 38 Sustainable acres
"All of our wines are sourced from our estate vineyards on Westside Road. This allows Adam, myself, and Diane to shepherd our wines from ground to glass. The land that my family has been farming for over sixty years gives our wines a true expression of place."
- John Bucher
Winegrower + Winemaker
After graduating from UC Davis in 1984, John Bucher returned to Healdsburg to manage the family dairy operation, Bucher Farms, eventually transitioning the herd to an organic dairy farm. In 1997 John planted the first Bucher Vineyard Pinot Noir blocks for Bucher Farms. Now Bucher Vineyard Pinot Noir grapes are sold to several notable Sonoma County wineries, including Williams Selyem, Merry Edwards, Papapietro Perry, AldenAlli, Dutcher Crossing, and Sojourn.
Where the Wine is Made
With the 2011 harvest, John and his wife Diane, along with help from their children, crushed their first grapes for Bucher Wines. As a working dairy, farm, and vineyard, it is truly a family affair. Their children Elizabeth, Hannah, Jack, and Tony Klisura are the third generation of Buchers to work on this family farm. We are honored and proud to feature their wines at Region.
