This place has good wines and great views. It is rustic but has character and very friendly people that serve you.

I live in Sonoma and hadn't been to GunBun in a while, so I jumped on the chance to participate in their new GunBun Underground tasting. The experience, which is a mere $40, started with a splash of their famous Gewürztraminer in the tasting room, which is chock full of memorabilia, winery history, and a gift shop that has some...

Arrive on a beautiful day and tour the beautiful grounds. Walk around the picnic area, see the vineyards, the valley and pond and then...enter the sampling room. This is a package deal-enjoy the experience, not just the wine. Bring a picnic lunch, if desire. Talk to staff. Our staff guide was Ronnie-ask Ronnie about the pictures of the family posted... More

We were there during a rare heavy rain period ... so instead of taking the Pinzgauer out for a tour of the grounds, we ended up on a walking tour (due to the possibility for erosion). It was still wonderful, even if the plan got detoured. We got an awesome walking tour through the caves, and then we were treated... More

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!
