Overview
More
With a dream to define truth in wine, owner/winemaker Matt Kowalczyk and wife Stephanie Lopez set out to create a unique boutique wine experience built on integrity. Ten years of searching for the best vineyards, working with the best wine makers, practicing innovative wine making techniques, and creating a distinctively different feel has now blossomed into their own winery and tasting room to share with the world. Focusing on bold Bordeaux, Rhone and Burgundian varietals Buscador, meaning "Searcher", is about loving the search and the search is the meaning in wine, in love and in life. Love Your Search.

Buscador is a gem of a winery. I enjoyed every single wine. Matt is a genial host and I have been recommending the winery to anyone who will listen. Now open Thurs-Sunday too!
