About the winery:
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 the perfect ‘terroir’ for exceptional wine. He ultimately settled in Sonoma, birthplace of California, where he founded Buena Vista Winery in 1857. He was a committed farmer, innovator and vintner. His beloved Buena Vista Winery today is committed to continue the imaginative vision and unrivaled legacy, with an exiting range of Zinfandel, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
