Join us as we bring the 1860s to life with wine, food, and music! Living historical figures will be wandering the grounds telling stories and giving tours of our historic stone winery buildings and wine caves.
In 1866 Buena Vista Winery had a sales office at 409 Battery Street, just 2 blocks from the heart of the famed Barbary Coast of San Francisco, where revelry and merriment were the rule from the early 1860’s to the 1930’s. On July 9th we shall return to the Barbary Coast, where you will meet professional living historians including Mark Twain as performed by Hollywood Actor Jeffrey Weissman, and Dr. Cornelius Poindexter the Medicine Man. Performing will be the Sea Dogs singing group, Can-Can Bijou Dancing Troupe, Ballet Russe Comedy-Song Dance Troupe; along with street urchins, thugs, a concertina player, and of course our Count, and his family. Guests are invited to dress in period attire and join in the fun! Taste through a selection of our current release wines, tour our Historic winery buildings, and enjoy delicious food options (food available by purchase provided by local purveyors).
Wine Club Member tickets are $25 per person, General tickets are $35. For more information or to RSVP please contact the Wine Club at 800.325.2764.
About Buena Vista Winery
Buena Vista Winery is California’s first premium winery and was founded in 1857 by Hungarian immigrant, Agoston Haraszthy, the self-proclaimed “Count of Buena Vista.” Possessing a deep regard for the significance of Buena Vista’s place in California wine history, Jean-Charles Boisset purchased Buena Vista in April, 2011 and added the winery to the Boisset Collection. Today, Boisset is returning Buena Vista Winery to its original glory with the complete restoration and re-opening of the historic property. The wines are achieving new heights under Winemaker Brian Maloney and Consulting Winemaker David Ramey. Buena Vista Winery is located at 18000 Old Winery Road, Sonoma, CA.
