Villa and Museum
As you enter the Bartholomew Park, you will be surrounded by vineyards, gardens and in the distance a replica of the majestic Villa built by Agoston Haraszthy in 1861-2 for his family overlooking the property. The Count opened the Villa with a grand and elegant masked ball. The Count's original Villa was destroyed, and in 1987, at the end of her life, Antonia Bartholomew, rebuilt the Villa to preserve physically the fascinating early era and way of life. The museum in the Villa is open on weekends from noon to 3 pm.
The Foundation leases a two acre site, known as Bartholomew Park Winery, to The Vineburg Company, an affiliate of the Gundlach-Bundschu winery. There is no affiliation between the Frank H Bartholomew Foundation, the owner and operator of the Bartholomew Park, and the Bartholomew Winery, other than as Landlord (the Foundation), and Tenant (the Vineburg).
