California Wineries

Buena Vista Winery


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!

Our Wines

  • 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.
  • The 2018 Alexander Valley Zinfandel opens with a garland of dark fruit notes and expressions of black cherry, boysenberry and blackberry enhanced with hints of baking spice and tobacco. This well-structured wine has refined tannins and leaves a long-lasting and luscious finish.
  • Very deep ruby hue with lovely aromas of dark berry, granite and hot chalk, overlaid with a bed of violets and thyme. The palate is dense, concentrated, powerful but contained, tannins are beautifully laced through the density of the fruit creating a silky weave. The acidity is high but nicely distributed across the palate and integrates nicely with the fruit of the wine. The finish is long, poised, elegant, warming. Superbly charming and elegant wine.
