The winery's colorful founder, The Count of Buena Vista, pioneered premium winemaking in California. A tireless and passionate devotee of California wine, The Count imported hundreds of premium vines from Europe, dug Sonoma's first wine caves, introduced innovative viticulture techniques, and wrote the first treatise on California wine. Buena Vista Winery honors his legacy, bold vision, and commiment to excellence through this red wine – the Founder's Red Wine.
The 2011 Founder's Red Wine is a balanced and structured wine that exudes seductive red fruit aromas that lead to a pleasing palate of red currant, blackberry jam and just a hint of dark chocolate. This food friendly wine is the perfect complement to a variety of light pasta dishes – try it with Cavatappi topped with prosciutto and parmesan.
