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, and spanning from Sonoma and into Napa, Buena Vista is California’s first premium winery, and its history is as colorful as it is proud. Today, the legend has been re-born under the vision of Jean-Charles Boisset.
Just outside the town of Sonoma, the original winery is now a California Historic Landmark, and home to the Winery, one of our Tasting Rooms, and Visitor’s Center. Chateau Buena Vista, located in the heart of downtown Napa, is the realization of a dream to re-establish the winery with a permanent destination in Napa Valley. Housed in the 1929 Gordon Building, the art deco inspired Tasting Room brings the experience of Champagne and Caviar with Cabernet and Chocolate to guests.

What is the Best Rated Chateau Buena Vista Wine?
Chateau Buena Vista Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 has an enticing bouquet of blackberry and plum with notes of bay leaf spring from the glass. This is a full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon with blended flavors of blueberry, black currant and hints of cedar spice. Smooth and structured tannins with balanced acidity lead to a long and juicy finish.
Here's what James Suckling had to say: Rated 95 - This wine shows depth and balance, offering a classic nose of ripe dark fruit, vanilla and eucalyptus. Some crushed-stone minerality, too. Full-bodied and dense with impressive concentration, viscous tannins and bright acidity. Fresh and juicy aftertaste. Lovely now, but better in 2023.
