Buena Vista Winery has a rich, delicious heritage as the first premium, and certainly the most colorful, of all the wineries in California. And its founder, the self-proclaimed “Count of Buena Vista,” Agoston Haraszthy, was a vivacious and eccentric pioneer with a veritable love and unending commitment to California wine. Surrounded by his own tales of intrigue and political exile, The Count immigrated from Europe in 1840 in pursuit of opportunity and freedom in the burgeoning American West. Following the forty-niners in search of gold in the hills of Northern California, Haraszthy sought “purple gold” – the perfect ‘terroir’ for exceptional wine. He ultimately settled in Sonoma, birthplace of California and capital of the short-lived California Republic, where he founded Buena Vista Winery in 1857.

Buena Vista North Coast Pinot Noir opens with aromas of ripe red fruits with cinnamon and clove. Delightful flavors of raspberry and black cherry are accented by notes of mocha and cardamom as they spread lusciously across the palate. Lower acidity balanced with bright flavors and a satisfying finish makes this an immediately enjoyable wine.

Pioneer of the Columbia Valley wine region, Butch Milbrandt saw potential in Eastern Washington. In 1997, this fourth-generation farmer took a risk in planting grapes and soon became recognized for helping establish two of the top AVAs in Washington State: Ancient Lakes and Wahluke Slope. Never forgetting his farming roots, Butch is a true “Renaissance rancher” who loves to ride his motorcycle, fly his plane, and cook. In the military, he cooked for his company. It was then he honed a talent for pairing food and wine and seasoned his desire to own a winery. Now a multi-generational winery with Butch taking the lead, Milbrandt Vineyards remains a symbol of perseverance and reward.

Milbrandt Chardonnay 2016 has inviting aromas of warm vanilla, hints of toast, ripe pear, crème brulée, burnt cream, and honey crisp apple. The palate has a bright generous entry, with a ripe fruit-driven mid-palate followed by bright acidity and a clean finish.
