Buena Vista Winery is pleased to announce its first annual Living History Extravaganza. Wine, food, music, Living History performances, and period-clothed re-enactors will tell stories and give tours of our historic stone winery buildings and caves.
Buena Vista Winery is the single most important Historic Winery in California; it possesses the first wine caves dug into any hillside in California, and the first and second stone gravity-flow winery buildings built in California. Founded in 1857, Buena Vista Winery was by the middle of the 1860’s the largest and most modern European-style winery in California, and produced over one million bottles of wine a year.
We at Buena Vista are bringing that amazing History to life on July 12 with many of the actual people who were present back in the 1860’s, including the Count, his son Arpad, his daughter, Ida, famous Sonoman General Vallejo, and many others. There will be Living Historians in period clothing telling stories and demonstrating their crafts, and a Living History Re-Enactment of the Bear Flag Revolt. The public is invited to wear period clothing to join in the fun!
The Sonoma/Petaluma State Historic Parks Association is our non-profit partner, and a percentage of wine sales will be donated to this local group.
