Next we will visit the Buena Vista Winery.  Founded in 1857, it is the oldest commercial winery in California. The original hand-dug caves are still on site, and are open to visitors for tours after a reconstruction. The visitor center, located inside the original wine press house, provides access to the original champagne cellar.

The winery produces 100,000 cases of wine including cabernet sauvignon, syrah, pinot noir, merlot, sauvignon blanc, zinfandel and chardonnay wines, as well as a host of unique historical varietals labeled under the "Vinicultural Society" label. Starting at $20 per person. 

Then we will head into downtown Sonoma to Sonoma Plaza. Sonoma Plaza is the perfect destination for 2 hours or 2 days! 100+ shops and art galleries, 25+ wine tasting rooms, 30+ great places to eat, and many other things to experience.Take the sights, attend a cheese tasting, do some shopping, taste some wine, and visit the historic Mission in this eight acre National Park.

Our next stop is Cline Cellars. This winery created legendary Zinfandels, distinctive Rhone-style wines, and Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir, Merlot and Chardonnay. While most wineries close at 5, Cline stays open till 6. It is a perfect winery to close the tour. 

All the listed stops are just recommendations. We will be happy to replace them with wineries chosen by our guests.
