Buena Vista Winery has a rich heritage as the first premium winery in California. And its founder, Agoston Haraszthy, was a pioneer with an unending commitment to California wine.

He immigrated from Europe in 1840 and sought 'purple gold' and the perfect terroir for exceptional wine. He ultimately settled in Sonoma, birthplace of California, where he founded Buena Vista Winery in 1857. A committed farmer, innovator and vintner, a respected author, a shrewd businessman, The Count is considered California's most acclaimed and flamboyant vinicultural pioneer. Despite his abrupt death in 1869 and following the challenges of the depression, prohibition, and phylloxera infestation; his beloved Buena Vista Winery has not only endured but also prospered. Boisset Family Estates is passionately committed to continue the imaginative vision and unrivaled legacy first created by The Count 150 years ago.
