Staying near Sonoma's historic square? Start your wine country exploration at Buena Vista Winery, a quirky winery with some serious Old World charm. Founded in 1857, Buena Vista has been dubbed a California Historic Landmark, serving not only as a winery that offers a range of varietals but also as a cultural must-see. That's not to say Buena Vista is stuffy—visitors can take advantage of its eccentric side, like a guided light show and tasting led by the "Count of Buena Vista," or a Winemaker for a Day class where you get to dress up like a Count or Countess. A barrel tour and tasting guides guests through the winery's beautiful grounds and Champagne cellar before ending with samples drawn directly from a barrel.
How to visit: Buena Vista Winery is open seven days a week from 10am to 5pm. Wine tastings in the Press House Tasting Room cost $15. No reservations required.
In short: Historic; quirky; centrally located
