Wine Enthusiast -Sonoma County, Sonoma, California - ""This value minded wine impresses in its freshness and balance. Bright, juicy apple, pear and banana blend with rich oak and baking spice.""
Wine grapes have been planted in Sonoma County since the first European settlers arrived. In 1812, Russian immigrants began planting vines along the coast. In the 1820s, Spanish monks planted vines as they built their missions. In 1855, Hungarian Agoston Haraszthy founded Buena Vista, which bills itself as California’s first premium winery, still in operation today.
