Our Story

Other than some ordinary grape varieties planted at many of the early missions, the wine industry in California primarily started in Woodside. In 1854, Count Agostin Haraszthy brought grape rootings from his native Hungary and planted 30 acres near the Crystal Springs lakes - mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and other red varieties. Unfortunately he planted ten miles too far north and the wind and fog coming through the San Mateo swale in the Santa Cruz Mountains did not allow his grapes to fully ripen. In the early 1860s, he sold his lands and moved to Sonoma where he founded Buena Vista Winery, reportedly the oldest winery in Sonoma County.
