Perhaps the nicest winery we’ve been to. It has a fascinating history that’s worth checking out. They’d get a 5 but for their remarkably chintzy pours in their tastings. $35 bought us 4 very small pours (they have a $20 option). We bought one of...More

We visited this winery twice since we enjoyed it so much. The first day was to enjoy the wine and the second day was to enjoy the “bubbles”. Diane was most helpful and it was a delight to see her again. Plan a visit here...More

Amazing renovation made me feel like I was at a vineyard in Corsica. Went with a wine club member for a free tasting of 4 generous and very high quality pours. It was quiet so we sat at the reserve table in a private room...More

Nice wine tasting. Was pretty busy when we went on a Monday morning. Beautiful location and a nice place to walk around and after your tasting have a picnic on their patio.

The oldest winery in California stands up to its name. The history and the wine were superb. Our host was well versed in the family tree and those who still reside in Sonoma County.

Truly, this place is magical. It’s the oldest premier winery in California. It’s also the first place I went where I liked ALL of their wines. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Buena Vista is a beautifully restored winery in Sonoma, close to the plaza. The tour and wine tasting is reasonably priced but not really the best choice for people with a serious interest in wine. Much of the time is spent learning about the history...More

Buena Vista has to be on your list if you love wine, history and FUN! This is California's oldest winery and has tons of historical value. Also, the "JCB" effect (the initials of their famous current owner) makes Buena Vista fun and opulent to boot....More

You can do a tasting or buy a bottle and relax here. I would bring my own picnic rather than purchase there.
