About Jericho Canyon Vineyard

In 1989, Marla DeDomenico Bleecher and her husband, Dale Bleecher, left the hustle and bustle of the Bay Area joining her parents, Wine Train founders Vincent and Mildred DeDomenico, in beautiful Napa Valley.

Settling into a 135-acre canyon nestled at the base of Mt. St. Helena, they planted 40 acres of steeply terraced and sustainably farmed vineyards. Noted winemaker David Ramey soon discovered Jericho Canyon’s unique and exceptional fruit, launching flagship Jericho Canyon Vineyard designate wines for both Rudd Estate and Ramey Wine Cellars.

In 2006, they finished their winery and produced their first estate vintage. Nicholas Bleecher returned in 2011 to oversee winemaking alongside influential Bordeaux based enologist, Michel Rolland, and 2012 Food and Wine Winemaker of the year, Aaron Pott.

About Nicholas Bleecher

A second-generation Jericho Canyon vintner and third-generation Wine Train proprietor, Nicholas was born with wine in his blood. Raised in the wild terrain of Jericho Canyon with summers spent pruning, leafing, irrigating, and picking, he learned winemaking from the ground up. After a brief respite from vineyard duties working as a WineTrain marketing intern, he returned to Jericho Canyon with a renewed desire to better Napa Valley and create exceptional wine. Upon graduating from the renowned winemaking university, UC Davis, with degrees in Viticulture, Enology, and Managerial Economics, Nicholas ventured abroad to hone his winemaking skills.

Presently overseeing all aspects of winemaking, Nicholas believes in perfection, both in the field and in the cellar. To that end, he has surrounded himself with some of the most recognized winemakers in the world. Working alongside legendary winemakers, Michel Rolland and Aaron Pott, Nicholas has released his first wine as winemaker, the Jericho Canyon 2013 Sauvignon Blanc.
