Wine Country: Buena Vista’s Historic Tasting Room


Founded in 1857, Buena Vista Carneros is the oldest continually operating winery in California—and it’s worth a visit for the historic significance, beauty and excellent Chardonnay / Pinot Noir.

Plus, the tastings at at Buena Vista are relatively inexpensive when you use the 2 for 1 coupon on their website. For $10 we got the chance to sample the 2007 Ramal Vineyard Chardonnay, 2007 Ramal Vineyard Chardonnay Dijon Clones, 2007 Ramal Vineyard Pinot Noir Swan Selection, 2007 Ramal Vineyard Pino Noir Dijon Clones, and the 2007 Ramal Vineyard Merlot.

My favorites were the Ramal Vineyard Chardonnay and the Swan Selection Pinot Noir. And if you are into Merlot, check out the 2007 Ramal Vineyard series. The nose grabs you right away—really fruity and jammy.
