A Sonoma Legacy

Idyllically situated at the summit of the Sonoma Valley, Viansa Sonoma embodies the proud history of local winemaking. The legacy of Viansa Sonoma dates back to 1896 when Samuele Sebastiani arrived from Tuscany and saved enough money, while making cobblestones for San Francisco streets, to purchase vineyard property in 1904.

Following in his footsteps, Samuele’s children and grandchildren continued the tradition of sharing great wine, supporting the land from where it comes, and through passionately maintaining precious wetlands that are vital to our eco-system.

Founded by Samuele’s grandson in 1989, Viansa Sonoma remains committed to producing wines of true excellence while continuing the tradition of land stewardship and winemaking that defines the Sonoma Valley.

Continuing the tradition

In 2015, we replanted our estate vineyards, visible from our front terrace, 10 acres of Pinot Noir and 15 acres of Chardonnay. Today we produce wines of true excellence while continuing the tradition of winemaking that defines the Sonoma Valley.

Just 35 minutes north of San Francisco, Viansa Sonoma is known for award-winning wines, iconic 270 degree views of the Sonoma Valley, and warm hospitality.

Viansa Sonoma winemaker, Amy Ludovissy, grew up in Iowa and started her winemaking education early, making wine with her parents in their basement.

Amy devoted herself to exploring winemaking across the globe before landing a spot as a lab intern in 2011 at Girard Winery, Napa Valley. Amy worked her way up the winemaking ranks and was named head winemaker for Viansa Sonoma in 2015, continuing the winemaking legacy in Sonoma Valley.
