The bike ride here from downtown Sonoma is fabulous. Nice views, pretty grounds. They technically open at 11am but we got there ten mins early and they served us. We were taken care of immediately and staff was very kind and knowledgeable. $20 tasting EACH but they had the better tasting wines IMO.

I've actually been to this winery a couple of times wth friends. This last time was for a friends birthday and we had a private tasting in their "bungalow," which was actually a small house. It was a great set up (cheese plates, 4 tastings, and a record player all for our group). The wine is also delicious!

This is one of my favorites in Napa/Sonoma. The staff at Gundlach Bundschu are very friendly, knowledgeable and this winery is typically not overcrowded, even on weekends. Great spot to bring a picnic basket and enjoy lunch out on the patio. There are many more scenic locations like Gloria Ferrer, but for overall friendliness, knowledge and the reason I go... More

Just a 5 minute drive from Sonoma, Gundlach-Bundschu Winery will whisk you back in time to a pre-prohibition era. The tasting room is adorned with black and white photos of family and founders, while a display shows labels as they evolved over time. The staff is laid back, attentive, and super friendly. Our host was the best, very knowledgeable and... More

First trip to Sonoma was around 1987, have seen lots of changes, napa wineries have gone glitzy and sonoma wineries are now what napa was like 20 years ago. But GB keeps it's rustic roots, love the contrast. Also love the wed price points on their wines, there is something for everyone,

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
