Whitehall Lane, a ‘Best-Kept Secret’ in Napa, Partners with Balzac Communications and Marketing to Let That Secret Out

May 8, 2023

Whitehall Lane, a ‘Best-Kept Secret’ in Napa, Partners with Balzac Communications and Marketing to Let That Secret Out By Advertisement SONOMA, Calif. (May 4, 2023)—Napa’s  Whitehall Lane  has been called a best-kept secret in Napa. One of the region’s few remaining family-run wineries, the company is known for its humble and welcoming hospitality, honest wines made with Cabernet Sauvignon and other Bordeaux grapes, and bottles at prices that make you feel like you have a winemaker for a friend. As the Leonardini family celebrates its 30th anniversary with Whitehall Lane, it has partnered with  Balzac Communications and Marketing  to help it increase outreach to wine lovers and professionals. Whitehall Lane was purchased by Tom Leonardini Sr. in 1993. Over the last 30 years, the Leonardini family has grown the winery from a small producer with a single vineyard to a brand with a robust portfolio of wines and eight vineyards in Napa and Sonoma. Tom, now in his 80s, has passed a love for the wine business on to his children and grandchildren, who are now in charge of day-to-day operations and charting a future course for the family business. Katie Leonardini is vice president of operations. Tom Jr. now serves as vice president of distribution and his son, Tom III, is the cellarmaster. Katie’s oldest son, William Melancon, graduated from Cornell University with a viticulture/oenology degree this year. Whitehall Lane is known for charming, old-fashioned hospitality and a wide range of wines. While the focus is on Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet blends and Merlot, the family also produces Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, sparkling and single-vineyard wines. Looking to the future, Whitehall Lane sees a continued focus on sustainability, creativity in winemaking, investment in top-of-the-line vineyard and winery technology to ensure it continues to make the best wines. Balzac Communications and Marketing, which specializes in luxury clients in verticals such as wine and spirits, will be there along the way. “We’ve thought for a long time about working with a public relations firm, and when we met the Balzac team, we knew we have found the right partner,” said Katie Leonardini. “In Balzac, we see a like-minded group of people with similar values, experience working with luxury brands and companies that cover multiple market segments, and a real talent for helping brands share their story in a meaningful way. We look forward to working closely with them.” “The Leonardini family represents the very best of Napa,” said Mike Wangbickler, president of Balzac Communications and Marketing. “It is family owned but also family operated, and run with smart and sustainable business practices. The wines are well made and reflect the best the region can produce. They’re connected to their history but also looking to the future. Their future looks bright, and we are excited to work with them as they move their vision forward.” About Balzac Communications and Marketing Balzac Communications and Marketing  is a PR and marketing agency based in Sonoma, California, that delivers tailored solutions for clients with values that align with its own.
