Wine lovers can bring history to life with private virtual tastings with actor and historian George Webber, who plays Buena Vista Winery founder Agoston Haraszthy. Webber, who embodies the Hungarian nobleman who called himself “the Count of Buena Vista” after founding California’s oldest premium winery in 1857, has been conducting popular live online sessions each Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at noon and was featured in an AP story that was picked up by national and international news outlets.
Now he’s offering personalized, private 30-minute online tastings for wine lovers who purchase $300 or more of Buena Vista wines. Customers will enjoy hearing the rich history of the historic winery, the colorful life of its founder and wine-inspired songs as well as learn the details about the specific wines they purchased, including information on the vineyards, winemaking process and ideas for food pairings.
To book a session, call the Buena Vista Customer Service department at 800.926.1266 to place an order and then the Count will be in touch to arrange the details and schedule the tasting. Cheers!
ABOUT BUENA VISTA WINERY
Buena Vista Winery is California’s first premium winery; it was founded in 1857 by Hungarian immigrant Agoston Haraszthy, the self-proclaimed “Count of Buena Vista.” Possessing a deep regard for the significance of Buena Vista’s place in California wine history, Jean-Charles Boisset purchased Buena Vista in April, 2011 and added the winery to the Boisset Collection. Today, Boisset has returned Buena Vista Winery to its original glory with the complete restoration and re-opening of the historic property. The wines are achieving new heights under Winemaker Brian Maloney and Consulting Winemaker David Ramey. Buena Vista Winery is located at 18000 Old Winery Road, Sonoma, CA.
