Looking for something different on your next wine trip to Sonoma County? Start at the far end of Sonoma Valley at Buena Vista Winery, California’s first commercial winery established in 1857 by Count Agoston Haraszthy.
Steeped in history, legend has it that migrant Chinese workers were trapped alive while digging the caves for the Count. Hence, ghost sightings have been reported in the tasting room and in the cave after hours.
Tucked away in the Chalk Hill AVA, east of Windsor, Roth Estates Winery features a more modern cave setting. Specializing in Bordeaux varietals, Roth offers a unique property tour ending with a reserve tasting in the cave itself.
