Before there were vineyards in every valley north of San Francisco, before Napa and Sonoma were household names, before there was a California wine world at all, there was Buena Vista. Founded in 1857, Buena Vista is California’s first premium winery, and its history is as colorful as it is proud. Today, the legend is being re-born under the vision of Jean-Charles Boisset. Our future is our past… our vivacious, colorful, and pioneering past!
This Furmint has refined, elegant fruit aromas complemented with notes of vanilla. The silky, creamy body is balanced by minerality and a touch of vanilla and spice. Nice acidity and subtle oak flavors envelop this rich white wine with a lingering and refreshing finish.
Bright and aromatic floral notes spring from the glass. Crisp red apple, stone fruit and honey flavors grace the palate with a touch of citrus zest. A refreshing and beautifully balanced sparkling wine, the finish has you reaching for another sip.
Chateau Buena Vista
The self-proclaimed Count, and our founder, Agoston Haraszthy, understood that great wine comes not only from great grapes, but also from great places. In the 1860’s Buena Vista covered more than 6,000 acres reaching from the southernmost part of Sonoma Valley into Napa County. Both regions offer a unique terroir – the magical combination of all the attributes required to create outstanding wines of a particular site – from the soil, to the climate, to the site’s exposure to the sun, to the vine itself. With the release of the Chateau Buena Vista wines, we celebrate and honor Buena Vista’s indelible presence and significant contributions to the California wine world. These wines are a culmination of the storied history of Buena Vista ... a story like no other.
