Gundlach Bundschu is the second oldest winery in California, an interesting winery with its own artistic take on labeling wines. There is a park that can be hiked for elevated views over the vineyards and a small lake. The winery tour in an off-road vehicle is offered once a day, which did not fit into our itinerary.

The wines here did not knock our socks off, but they had a nice tasting room with a nice retail area. There were also a couple different area to have a picnic overlooking the Sonoma valley.

Every time we visit Sonoma (up to 3 times some years, some years not at all), we visit wineries. Some of them are gone, or have changed hands, or changed quality. Gun Bun is consistent year on year. When we visit other wineries and taste their wines 6 each or so, we like some, love a few, and don't like... More

Firstly, really enjoyed calling in here. Made it a destination because I've recently discovered Gewurztraminer, and its on the Gun Bun wine list. And had a tasting of just this (which thankfully they didn't charge the tasting fee for.) Bought a couple of bottles too. But it was hard work. Intimate this place isn't. Found myself bustling at the crowded... More

Enjoyed this Vineyard it was really interesting history of the family , having been to other vineyards before this one I just rated this one as good as I didn't love how the tour was done. The wine however was very good.

We spent 3 hours sitting on the patio and sipping wine. The view is breathtaking! The people are super nice and knowledgeable about wine and the history of the winery. We had a pairing of cheese and tapas which really accompanied the wines well. Just a lovely lazy afternoon in beautiful surroundings. A must see for every wine lover!

This is a beautiful property, especially from their terrace! They happened to be very busy inside the day we were there as it had been raining and they had to move their tastings from the terrace inside, but we were promptly greeted and they made a spot for us. Very nice staff made us feel welcome and we enjoyed the... More

The wines were not of the quality as I have purchased in the past and our tasting hostess was not pleasant at all. A quirky atmosphere that is fun helped make the trip there OK but I will not return.

Beautiful grounds. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere was really cool. A cavelike environment. The wines were really nice and the internal shop had some unique and interesting items that made for a really relaxing visit. Outside grounds were really beautiful.

Awesome wines from awesome people. If you miss this one, you will miss one of the best. Unpretentious, welcoming, not pushy and some of the best wine from all of California. Love these people and their work.
