Sonoma County Wineries – Buena Vista Winery
AVA: Sonoma Valley
Open to Public: Yes
By Appointment: Yes
Hailed as California’s first premium winery, Buena Vista Carneros offers both history and character coupled with truly remarkable wines. Founded in 1857, this property is now a California Historic Landmark and boasts a winery, tasting room and visitor’s center. The Carneros appellation has pioneered winegrowing in the region since the 1970s and was the first AVA established that was defined by its climatic conditions rather than political boundaries. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes grown here create elegant and graceful wines that display the area’s unique character.
