Brion Wise founded B Wise Vineyards in 2002 seated on top of a ridge in the Moon Mountain District of the Sonoma Valley. A Mediterranean style mansion/bungalow estate and home to the owner has incredible views and is known specifically for their comfortable and tastefully decorated wine cave. While you are in the cave tasting and looking at fermenting and aging tunnels, you will learn about their red blend wines while taking in the décor from 1920’s Paris with wild-west themed bronzes and vintage furniture.
A charming estate steeped in history, Bartholomew had the first recorded vineyard in Sonoma and was part of California’s first commercial winery in 1857. Rosé, Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel, and red blends are made in extremely limited quantities and sell out quickly. Tastings can be outdoors beneath stunning mature oak trees or in the gorgeous, newly renovated historic Hacienda winery. Experience Sonoma history and natural beauty at this tucked away gem a few minutes from the Sonoma Plaza.
California’s oldest continually operating winery was established in 1875. The Rhine House, Jacob Beringer’s former residence and the current tasting room, is a showpiece of 19th century architecture.
A historical icon in Sonoma, Buena Vista was the first commercial California winery founded in 1857 and is currently owned by legendary wine aficionado Jean Claude Boisset. Buena Vista blends old world elegance and a rustic charm with a splash of French style. The range of wine is vast with incredible sparkling wines and delightful still wines from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir to bold red blends. Buena Vista has style beyond measure–from stunning historic wine buildings and caves to the opulent crystal-filled rooms of the Champagne Cellars, the experience is wonderfully immersive.
