About Buena Vista Winery

California's first premium winery established in 1857 by Count Agoston Harazthy.

Read More

Pioneers of the California Wine Industry. Before there were vineyards in every valley north of San Francisco, before Napa and Sonoma were household names, before there was a California wine industry at all, there was Buena Vista. Founded in 1857 by Count Agoston Haraszthy, Buena Vista is Californias oldest premium winery, and its history is as colorful as it is proud. Just outside the town of Sonoma, the original winery is now a California Historic Landmark, and home to our Tasting Room & Visitors Center. Boisset Family Estates-a family with a true love and respect for Buena Vista-is passionately committed to continue the imaginative vision and unrivaled legacy first created by The Count 150 years ago. Please join us in celebrating the rebirth of Buena Vista. Our brilliant history. Our spectacular wines. The extraordinary experience at our breathtaking estate. Buena Vista Winery. Our future is in our history-our rich, colorful and eccentric past.

I visited multiple wineries while in Sonoma, & Buena Vista was by far my favorite. I highly recommend the Barrel Tour & Tasting. We learned a lot from Vasile, our tour guide. He was fantastic & did a great job of finding wines that we liked. I definitely liked hearing the history of the winery rather than just stopping by for a tasting. My favorite was their Private Reserve Chardonnay....FANTASTIC

Please pass this information along...we are in the wine business and live in Napa, got to say...there was no check in area. We had to stand in front of the bar and ask where to go for our barrel tasting. Oh..what a joke, the one barrel we tasted was a 2017 pinot, still bubbling away. Maybe they should go to another winery and get an education on what is a 'barrel tasting'. will not be back.

A little confusing on arriving in tasting room 10 minutes before the tour. We’re told Don was our tour guide. At about 3:10 of our 3:00p tour we talked to Don who curtly requested that we wait in the tasting room and have a glass of wine. The tasting room poured us a nice taste of the Rose Champagne. About 3:20p Fred the sherif tour guide introduced himself and we had a delightful tour.
