The Countess

Red Blend
Description

Founded in 1857 in Sonoma, Buena Vista is California’s first premium winery. Count Agoston Haraszthy, founder of Buena Vista, saw in Sonoma one of the great wine growing regions in the world. It is said that behind every great man is a great woman – and in the Count’s case, Eleanora Haraszthy played more than a supporting role. The Countess of Buena Vista raised their six children, assisted around the winery and even traveled to Europe with her husband to help bring back the grape vines that would lay the foundation for California viticulture. We honor her role in the history of Buena Vista with this Sonoma County Red Wine – a Boisset Collection exclusive crafted by Jean-Charles and our Buena Vista winemaking team.
