We live in San Francisco and we spend quite a few weekends in wine country. Having visited countless tasting rooms in both Sonoma and Napa we were blown away by our visit to "Gun Bun".

The tasting room is off the beaten path, but you can follow the signs from the highway right to the parking lot. With such a large property it would be easy to get lost, but a friendly greeting from the concierge helped us to feel right at home. From an outdoor picnic patio to wine bar and gardens, you can easily spend all day at this beautiful spot.

The concierge got us settled in the tasting room where we enjoyed a delicious wine flight. The entire tasting room staff was lovely and had wonderful senses of humor.

To our good fortune, after our first tasting there was some space available on the afternoons Pinzgauer tour. This jeep-like tour was the highlight of our visit. We had so much fun learning about the history of the winery while driving through parts of the 300+ acre property. It was the perfect mix of adventure and relaxation.

We will definitely be back to visit our new friends at Gundlach Bundschu!

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!
