A great wine tasting in the outside courtyard, by the lake.

Completely relaxed - we didn't feel hurried at all. We were able to share a glass between 2, half the expected cost and meant I didn't have to worry about driving, so was very impressed they offered that option.

We ended up buying a bottle of their excellent 2014 Heritage Pinot Noir to enjoy at home!

We visited Gundlach Bundschu last week after hitting a couple of other wineries first. This was by far our favorite for a couple of reasons. First it was lively and entertaining and festive. Secondly, the wines were really great. Next, we had GREAT service; very attentive and friendly AND knowlegeable. This was our favorite stop of the day. Bought some fun items in the gift area and joined the Wine Club!

Visited this second oldest CA winery and tried two flights: the Reserve and the Vista Courtyard. Highly recommend trying both as there are some differences you will highly appreciate.

Booked a Pinzagauer Tour and had the best time. Our guide was awesome and made it so much fun. We drove around the vineyards stopping occasionally to sample various wines and learn about the history of the land and family. The picnic spot near the end is gorgeous. I was so impressed with all the wines we tasted, the knowledge of the tour guide, and how thoughtfully orchestrated the tour itself was. I highly recommend visiting and doing this tour!

I’m not a big wine drinker (ended up giving most of my samples to my wife), but we really enjoyed our tour with Cat. She was funny and informative—great history lesson on this historic winery!
