Before there were vineyards in every valley north of San Francisco, before Napa and Sonoma were household names, before there was a California wine world at all, there was Buena Vista. Founded in 1857, the winery has a rich and unrivaled heritage as the first premium — and certainly the most colorful — of all of the wineries in California. Its founder, Agoston Haraszthy, the self-proclaimed “Count of Buena Vista,” was a vivacious and eccentric pioneer with a veritable love and unending commitment to California wine.

Just as we know today, the Count understood that great wine comes not only from great grapes, but also from great places. He chose the southernmost part of Sonoma Valley to build his winery due to the ideal location and ability to stretch his more than 6,000-acre estate into parts of Sonoma and Napa. Both regions offer a unique terroir — the magical combination of all the attributes required to create outstanding wines of a particular site — from the soil and the climate to the site’s exposure to the sun and the vine itself.

Through our current wine offerings, we are fortunate to uphold the legacy that was built by our illustrious founder. These wines are a culmination of the storied history of Buena Vista… a story like no other. They honor the estate’s original foundation in the Napa and Sonoma valleys as well as the influence and prominence that Buena Vista Winery holds in establishing Napa and Sonoma as the preeminent wine regions of California.

Just 5 minutes from Sonoma's famous plaza square, Buena Vista Winery's Historic Press House is open for tastings year-round. A designated Historic Landmark, our original wine caves and one-of-a-kind Wine Museum are not to be missed!
