Next, we will travel a quick 17-minutes to the gorgeous Viansa Winery for a private tasting. Viansa was born from a family legacy instrumental in establishing California as a world renowned wine region They combine Northern Italian winemaking tradition from family’s roots in Lucca with the rich natural environment of the Sonoma Valley Founded in 1990 by Sam Vicki Sebastiani Viansa is as an ode to the Sebastiani family's deep roots in both Tuscany and the Sonoma Valley Now under the management of sons Chris and Jon, Viansa continues to be a standout destination
for Italian varietal wines and warm hospitality. Once complete you can enjoy free time exploring the grounds until it's time to return to the bus.
