We came here on the Segway tour so we had our built in guide, Hunt, who filled us in on the history of this winery. Get some coupons to lower the cost of the tastings, visit with the Count, and be sure to go to the building in the back just recently restored at a cost of many millions of dollars. Looks like they give pretentious private tours here but our guide lifted the chain at the door and led us through. Oldest winery and first wine cave. Very French looking.

Four of us went to Buena Vista with high hopes, but that was short lived. This winery caters to the tours groups that are brought here, from the closer parking to the reserved spots, to the tasting bar, to the zero amount of information available about the tours. We felt entirely in the way, almost to the point of being annoying to the staff. We left after a very short visit. I'm sure it's a much different experience for the tour groups.

We made our first winery tour stop in Sonoma at Buena Vista at the very beginning of the morning at 10 am sharp. The staff was really friendly and we learned a lot about the count and the grounds. If you strike up a conversation with the staff, you will find out all kinds of details about the history of the property and the area. Two thumbs up.

My Dad and I made our first stop in the valley at Buena Vista, and it was worth it! We met "The Count" Aka George he was a wealth of knowledge about the winery's history, he gave us a private tour around the cellars and was the nicest guide around! He it the winery's largest asset no doubt about it, if you are in the area go check them out and strike up conversation with The Count he will treat you well!

We had a great time during a recent visit to Buena Vista our tour guide Vasile was amazing. His knowledge and passion for the the winery and wine in general made for an excellent tour. The grounds are great and getting a change to tour the caves and taste wine for the barrel was a unique experience!
