We stopped here as part of the bike tour. I had a nice Pinot Noir. Friendly service. Amazing building. I think it could be better with more prompt service. They likely don’t care if they see you wearing t-shirts and a cap. Average in my...More

Billed as the oldest winery in California, the Buena Vista Winery is a beautiful setting with lots of history and some very nice wines. The $35 reserve tasting seemed reasonable enough, not the least expensive and far from the most compared to the many other...More
