The history of Ágoston Haraszthy

The winery is named after acclaimed adventurer, traveller, and pioneer winemaker in Wisconsin Ágoston Haraszthy (1812-1869). Haraszthy was also known as the “Father of California Wine,” and was the first Hungarian to settle permanently in the United States. He is remembered in Wisconsin as the founder of the oldest incorporated village in the state, Széptáj, later renamed Sauk City.

In 1857, he visited Sonoma Valley and cultivated 226 hectares of wine, which became Buena Vista Winery, still known today as one of the most prestigious vineyards in the area. In 1861 after a trip from Europe, he returned to California with 300 varieties of European grapes, therefore, gaining the nickname of being the father of California wine.

He spent his last years in Nicaragua producing rum. He died by falling off a riverside, which resulted in him being eaten by alligators.
