This is our fourth trip to Sonoma county and we decided to visit wineries we missed in the past. The grounds of Viansa are breath-taking. The architecture is magnificent in an old-world way. No wonder why this is a popular wedding site. The wines match the view from the Tasting Room terrace. Carlos, our host, provided us with a wide... More

Viansa is one of the first wineries that travelers to Sonoma Wine Country will encounter and it's views of the surrounding hills, valley, and marshlands are world class. The walk up to the tasting room through vineyards and Tuscan inspired architecture, all the way to the elaborate patio with outdoor seating, open space, and the aforementioned view is enough to...

Beautiful views and property. Great wines, though pricey and since we were on bikes we didn't buy any. Good lunch. Absolutely amazing views. Of the wineries we visited this stands out as the most beautiful.

The Viansa winery sort of sneaks up on you so if you're not watching, you may actually drive by it. My first thought is that since it is on the way north to Sonoma that it probably is more touristy and must not be as good as it is on the outskirts. At my son's suggestion (he used to be... More

Stay a couple hours, but be forewarned , the vineyards and tasting rooms are cheaper in Sonoma, but usually more crowded. We went early one weekday, and had to wait for a tasting. It was comped thankfully. Enjoyed their wine selections but felt hurried, and didn't purchase. They had a very nice selection of meats, cheeses and such for lunch... More

I loved Kelly, our host. The selection of wines was more than I expected, and they even have a deli if you're looking for a light lunch.

My husband and I recently stopped by the Viansa Winery and Italian Marketplace for lunch while in town. We purchased food inside at the deli and ate outside on the patio. We had beautiful weather and a magnificent view of the vineyards. The food was good, but on the expensive side. We got two medium sized pasta salads, a small... More

Great tour and wine tasting. Wonderful food for purchase. It is gorgeous, a small winery but packs a lot of punch. Great shopping there too!

I absolutely loved Viansa!! From the minute I walked up to the beautiful fountain to eating fresh pizza made on a wood burning oven. It was stunning there! I felt so relaxed , they had a three piece band playing relaxing music which was a plus. I may not know much about wine tasting but 5 bucks for 4 different... More

The beautiful mansion is surrounded by a beautifully landscaped garden. There is a very extensive shop (one of the best in Sonoma Valley) where you can wander around. Within the store is also a wine tasting with the possibility to taste several small glasses of different wines for a price for a glass of wine so you can taste much... More
