Ended up here simply because we were heading to Cline right across the street and Cline looked crowded. Well- Viansa was crowded as well. Biggest winery we went to while in Napa and Sonoma. Lunch was available for purchase if you so desired, but it was stated everywhere that outside food was not allowed. Tasting was cheap- $5. Wine was... More

Viansa is a beautiful property, great for sitting back and enjoying an Italian sandwich is brick oven pizza (Available for purchase). We originally stopped to have a tasting and quickly decided we should have scheduled lunch here. Our tasting was a little disappointed here... This is a "big box" winery. Standing room only, fighting for the servers attention and little... More

On a first trip to the Sonoma area and stopped at Viansa for lunch and to enjoy the view. The winery has an extensive wine tasting list and marketplace to purchase many different goods. We enjoyed our lunch (they were holding a special barbeque) and the view of the hills and vinyards is spectacular.

This was our first stop on the wine tour. I immediately noticed the stunning 360 degree views that accompanied a cool tasting area. The food was good too.

This winery has been there a long time and is run like a market/wine tasting room. The reason to stop is the nice view and the chance to stroll around without anyone looking over your shoulder. The deli is not too active but if you can find someone there, you can buy a sandwich.

This was the first winery in California my boyfriend and I visited and it was delightful. A colleague had recommended this winery and I am glad we took the time to drive to Sonoma. The setting is simply breathtaking and it was relaxing to sample various wines, taste the different olive oils, vinegars, and honey without being pressured to buy.... More

The grounds of the winery are lovely & you can purchase food and wine to eat on the terrace overlooking the vineyard. The tasting room is inside a gift shop/store combo. There is no tour & your learn very little about the vineyard or operation of the winery.

Very pretty, but wasn't crazy about the wine. Good sAvignon blanc and pinot. Good gift shop and very nice seating for lunch from the deli. Just wish the wine was better. But, worth a stop for the scenery
