Buena Vista 150th Anniversary

This week in 1862, Count Agoston Haraszthy imported 100,000 rootstock cuttings from Europe. He was a Hungarian immigrant who purchased the Vallejo Vineyard in Sonoma County and renamed it Buena Vista. He became known as the father of the California wine industry and Buena Vista became California’s first premium winery. Today, Buena Vista is the state’s longest continuous operating winery and will be celebrating it’s 150th anniversary.
