Two decades ago, Viansa's founders fell in love with the land where our winery now is built. They couldn't resist the softly rolling hills, and they marveled at the soil and climate that promised to produce extraordinary wine grapes. They also keenly felt the desire to restore the acreage on the property that once had been wetlands but which had been converted to grazing land. They also knew that because of their Italian heritage, another part of their dream would be to produce wines from Italian grape varieties. So it was natural for them to put their love of the land together with their ancestry and envision a Tuscan estate where wine, food and Italian traditions would be shared and celebrated in an unparalleled natural setting. It took time, but their vision began to take shape. They chose the highest spot on the property--the crest of a hill with far-reaching views of Sonoma Valley--as the site for the Italian-inspired villa. The hill also offered a variety of sun exposures, soils and degrees Read more »

  • Viansa White Blend Sonoma County Anatra Bianco 2008

    Snoothrank:

    I found this wine stored away and knew nothing about it. It's pretty good! Smooth, reminds me of moscato but better. 13.5%alcohol isn't bad for a white wine either. Read More

  • Viansa Red Bordeaux Blend Sonoma County Ossidiana 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Our 2006 Ossidiana is a blend of Cabernet Sauvingon (48%), Cabernet Franc (37%) & Merlot (15%). Aged in French oak, this wine is very seductive with aromas of coffee, vanilla and violets followed by flavors of ripe blackberry and blueberry that are deep and concentrated. The firm but ripe tannins carry on through the long elegant finish. Read More
