Taste the award-winning wines of Buena Vista from the comfort of your own home. The Count of Buena Vista will guide you through all aspects of the wines from your selected pack—describing the vineyards that grew the grapes, the techniques used to make the wines, and tasting descriptive terms. We will also tell the amazing story of Buena Vista Winery, and Count Agoston Haraszthy—the founder of our winery in 1857. Guests may purchase our pre-selected Virtual Tasting packs, or even customize the wines you desire to taste!

A series of LIVE Cooking shows with wine performed by Count Agoston Haraszthy, founder of Buena Vista Winery in 1857. Each half-hour presentation on the Buena Vista Facebook page features a Buena Vista wine, expertly paired with an original recipe created by the Count. Preparation of each dish is done in the fresh air in front of our Champagne Cellars, and the Count explains in detail how the aromas, flavors, and textures of that day’s chosen wine compare and contrast with the elements of the delicious cuisine he prepares LIVE. The original recipe is posted online a week before each presentation, and viewers at home can make each dish along with the Count, or prepare it later.
We look forward to hosting these offerings again in the future.
