Our group was great to a tour by The Count, which was both highly entertaining and educational, not to mention a lot of fun. We ranged the tour ahead of time and I recommend it highly. Oh, and the wines are good, too!

Buena Vista is located just outside of the Plaza, situated on beautiful grounds and has the friendliest staff. It's perfect for tasting at the bar or tables outside. An experience that won't leave you disappointed!

Great tour! Very interesting for teens too! They offer many activities as member. Hedge maze was fun, but hedges were too short even for me. I love the period costumes.

Visited this gorgeous property on a tour we scheduled through the wine trolley. It was by far our favorite during our stay in Sonoma. The buildings are unique and absolutely beautiful. The wine was exquisite. What a lovely experience!

We did. The Count was great. There were eight of us and we all enjoyed this a lot. We plan to take friends next month so they, too, may enjoy this fun, informative experience.
