BUENA VISTA WINERY
Buena Vista Winery, California’s first premium winery, was founded in 1857 by Agoston Haraszthy, the self-proclaimed “Count of Buena Vista.” Possessing a deep regard for the significance of its place in California wine history, Jean-Charles Boisset brought Buena Vista into the Boisset Family Estates collection in April 2011. Today, Jean-Charles is returning Buena Vista to its original glory with the complete restoration and re-opening of the Champagne Cellars. For the first time in more than twenty years, the Cellars are now open to the public for tours, and wine is being made there once again after more than thirty years of dormancy. Buena Vista wines are being guided to new heights under winemaker Brian Maloney and winemaking consultant David Ramey.
Buena Vista Winery is located at 18000 Old Winery Road in Sonoma and open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Reservations can be booked online. To learn more about Buena Vista Winery, visit www.buenavistawinery.com, or contact Anna Miranda at email@example.com or 707-963-6939.
