When Viansa was founded in 1990, our parents set out to make great wine. But what truly set Viansa apart was Sam & Vicki’s unique vision: to create an immersive experience of both the rich culture of Italy and the bounty of Sonoma to share with the world.
Their innovation of the winery tasting room as a place to host, entertain, and feed guests helped usher in a new era for California wine country, one that welcomed guests and wine club members alike as amici di famiglia, or “friends of the family.”
It is this warm, engaging, and celebratory experience that continues to drive guests and members to Viansa’s hilltop villa, commonly referred to as the “Summit of Sonoma” for its unmatched panoramic view of the entire Sonoma valley, olive tree-lined vineyards, and a 97-acre wetland preserve.
Viansa Winery has now been a standout wine country destination for over 30 years. As the fourth generation of the Sebastiani family in Sonoma, we were thrilled to take Viansa into our own hands in 2018. We continue to make great Italian and traditional Sonoma varietal wines, host authentic, intimate experiences for our guests and members, and curate a seasonal wine club with our own updated spin.
As we continue to celebrate our history, we are always looking to the future. We continue to introduce new experiences, events, and products that invite you to enjoy all the best that Italy and Sonoma have to offer: superb food & wine craftsmanship, stunning natural beauty, and unforgettable gatherings of friends and family.
We hope to host you at the summit soon as amici di famiglia,
