Another gem in the company’s rapidly expanding portfolio, the picturesque estate is situated upon a hilltop at the entrance to Sonoma Valley in Sonoma County, California. Viansa combines the joys of wine, cuisine and world-class hospitality, making it an attractive asset to acquire. “We are pleased to have Viansa Winery as part of the family and the gateway to our Napa and Sonoma properties,” said Pat Roney, President, Vintage Wine Estates. Included in the sale is the adjacent 168-acre estate vineyard, planted to Sangiovese, Primitivo, Vernaccia and Pinot Grigio and 113-acre wetland preserve.

Overlooking preserved wetlands—a wildlife haven—and the panoramic scenic beauty of Sonoma Valley, Viansa is well known for its prime location. Situated just 40 minutes north of the Golden Gate Bridge, it is also a popular choice to host weddings and special private or corporate events in an array of attractive settings. Since it’s opening in 1989, Viansa has become “the” destination for locals and visitors to enjoy classic California and Italian wines, sample gourmet foods and relax on the expansive grounds.

Significant investments are planned for the Viansa Marketplace, estate and event facilities to further enhance the natural beauty of the property and elevate Viansa to a world-class Wine County destination. In addition, Vintage Wine Estates will establish a partnership with Ducks Unlimited to initiate restoration of wetlands that are part of the property. The winery will continue to offer classic California and Italian wines made from estate fruit and other prized Sonoma County vineyards.

Lloyd Davis, Viansa president said: “I could not think of a better group to acquire Viansa. Vintage Wine Estates has all the resources to take Viansa to the next level.”
