Viansa winery setting is beautiful. The tasting room sits in a hill w/ a patio that overlooks vineyard below. The tasting is inexpensive, $5 for 4 wines (note that our visa card got us 2 free tastings). We bought a baguette and an antipasta salad. Ate & sipped our tastings on the balcony with the sun on our shoulders, admiring the Tuscan-like views. Try the sparkling Scintillare - it's fresh & light. Cheers!

We stopped at this winery while on a tour of Napa/Sonoma. The setting is beautiful! The wine/tasting...very unimpressive. We felt rushed and nothing was explained to us. I thought the shop and deli were great! I could've done a lot of shopping if I hadn't been getting ready to go to Kauai the next day!!

This is a wonderful winery to experience. This winery sits up on a hill overlooking the Sonoma Valley. The architecture is true Tuscan. The staff is wonderful. We had a private tasting in their Cellar, very special. The wine was fabulous and the cheese pairings were perfect. We loved it so much we joined their Wine Club! The Deli and Gift Shop are a nice surprise and a great place to pick up a souvenir. We will definitely return and bring all the family & friends!

Whenever we go to Sonoma, we visit this winery. We went two days in a row! The views are amazing and sitting on their patio is incredibly relaxing. The first day we had lunch and wine, but the second day just had wine. Fun marketplace, great staff and a very pleasant stop.

We drove up to this place because we heard about the views and nice picnic spots. It did have very nice views, but we discovered we couldn't bring in any outside food (they have their own marketplace). Once we finished our food in the car, we made our way into the tasting room. It felt very....flashy but lacking substance, like a chain (I would almost compare it to like going to a Cheesecake Factory). The pourers were all wearing ear pieces (why do they need an ear piece at a winery??) We could choose any 5 wines we wanted, but we felt rushed and it was obvious our pourer was just reciting a memorized description about the wines we picked. None of the wines were very memorable either. I was not impressed.
