We have to give two thumbs up to the Viansa winery. You absolutly must make it a stop on your visit to wine country. you will love the old world charm and the spectacular wines.
Here is a little history on the Viansa Winery.
Founded in 1989 by Sam and Vicki Sebastiani, Viansa Winery & Italian Marketplace is a destination winery in the Carneros grape-growing region at the entrance to the Sonoma Valley Wine Country. Sam and Vicki created Viansa as a way to share their love of good food, wine and their Italian heritage with visitors from around the world. Dedicated to the marriage of wine and food, Viansa (short for "Vicki and Sam") truly offers visitors a taste of Tuscany in Sonoma Valley. Today, this family-owned and operated winery is proud to be the premier producer of Italian varietals in the United States!
Viansa’s tile-roofed Tuscan Villa sits on a hilltop surrounded by olive trees and vineyards, overlooking Viansa’s 90-acre waterfowl preserve, which has drawn acclaim from environmental groups across the nation. Outfitted with hand-painted murals, massive beams and Italian marble, the villa exudes Tuscan charm. The extensive grounds are planted with Italian cypresses and stone pines.
Viansa boasts a line-up that includes wines made from well-known grapes such as Sangiovese and Pinot Grigio along with lesser known varieties such as Arneis, Aleatico and Primitivo. They also offer an array of award-winning California varietals, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc, as well as our own proprietary blends.
Be sure to give them a visit. You will love it!
