Welcome to Blendtique Wine Company
You’re about to change the way you think about wine.
There’s no denying the explosion of wine culture around the world. It’s a part of our history and for many of us a part of who we are. We drink it with dinner, use it to unwind and -given the opportunity- some of us would probably even bathe in it. Yet, as enthusiasts, we also know that wine will forever remain subjective. What might be right for Jack, may simply not appeal to Jill. What satisfies the Smith’s, might be a little bland for the Johnson’s; but isn’t that one of the things that makes wine so remarkable?
Blendtique Wine Company is a revolutionary new concept whereby the everyday consumer can create and design a personalized wine blend from the comfort of home. For the first time, you –the enthusiast- can take part in the winemaking process, not simply to taste, but to blend, experiment, and even package a wine created thoughtfully by you, for you.
Whether blending as an individual, date-night activity, wedding party, or restaurateur -our one-of-a-kind system helps put the power of creativity back into the hands of the only discerning palate in the room that matters –yours!
So why wouldn’t you create your own wine from the couch? You’re already there, and we know you want a glass of wine. It’s really just efficiency at its best. So this time let’s make it your own. Experiment with flavors, advocate aromas, and even design your very own wine label –we have a feeling you’re going to enjoy it.
Blendtique Wine Company invites you to explore the art of the blend and get your creative juices flowing. Then, click on over to the Build Your Custom Blend link to upload your favorite recipe, design your entirely original label, and we’ll take care of the rest…
And just think, the next time you’re asked to bring a bottle of wine to dinner, you might as well bring the one you know you like. It could have your name written all over it; or face, or personal credo… Just remember to enjoy life and enjoy wine!

Greetings! My name is Billy Dim, and I am the creator of Blendtique Wine Company.
Over the past decade, I have worked in and around the Santa Ynez Valley wine industry witnessing its continued explosion, and participating at nearly every level of its expansion.
From production to sales, management to marketing, I have watched Santa Barbara evolve to become an epicenter for wine here on the Central Coast; but with all its positive growth and recognition, from boasting but a few select wineries -to projects now numbering in the thousands, I came to acknowledge a very important aspect somehow continuously being overlooked –the enthusiast’s desire to learn & participate.
Each year, tens of thousands flock to wine country hoping to explore the process and experience the beauty, but no matter how great their experience, participation is inevitably limited. A few short tastings, perhaps a bottle or two from their favorite vintner, and they’re on their way. Somehow, as an enthusiast, it didn’t seem fair; I expected more.
Blendtique Wine Company provides an interactive platform for enthusiasts to engage the industry they love; not simply to taste, but to learn, experiment, and create. The process can be enjoyed from the comfort of home or as part of an event. Our Blending Kits make for excellent gift items, and restaurants, weddings, and businesses now have a fun and cost effective way to create their very own house label with remarkable quality results. We work with a growing network of local and estate vineyards to source some of the best fruit of the Central Coast fruit and all product is processed locally to maintain varietal-true character. We welcome you to enjoy the process, explore the art of the blend, and always remember to enjoy life, enjoy wine!
