Little more layed back then the other wineries. You can purchase your own cheese and crackers from the fridge and sit outside on picnic tables. Beautiful old stone buildings and great wine! Many visitors bring their own "lunch" and enjoy it there.

This was the first stop on a wine tour we did in Sonoma. Lovely property and interesting history. Nice wine, but very popular on the tourist trail.

The property is very nice but it seemed overwhelmingly touristy. Our server at the bar was very pushy so didn't enjoy it too much. It was nice to see, the wine was good but don't think we would go back.

We visited last year and came back for more this year. We purchased a bottle of the Count's Revenge with nothing but a "crocodile" on the bottle last year even though we couldn't taste it. Nine months or so later we opened the bottle a...More

As the "Count" will explain to you, Buena Vista, Sonoma and, in fact, California premium wines were the brainchild of self made Hungarian Count Haraszthy. The facility is one-of-a-kind; an incredible blend of old world charm and kitschy decor with a large beautiful estate as...More

Our family (3 adults) took the Barrel Tour & Tasting, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our guide, Don, was dressed in period attire, which was fun. Our tour began with a glass of wine on the terrace, while Don went over some of the history --...More

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