The moment we arrived for our tasting we thought the setting and winery were beautiful. The location and decorations made it feel less snobby and it was way more relaxed. The service was fantastic, and the wines were all really good. We did not end up buying any however, this was due to the tasting fee. Most wineries wave the tasting if you buy wine or sign up to be a member but not here.

I went to GunBun 2 weekends in a row for special occasions and both experiences were amazing! The weekend of the deed signing celebration was packed the energy and relaxation all in one--like a wonderful massage! The second week was lovely as well; more low key and equally enjoyable. Both groups I brought fell in love with the winery ambiance and, more importantly, the wines. Excellent service!

I was with a group of several people and we spent a good chunk of money on tasting/tour/wine. It felt like compared to other similar sized/quality wineries, there was more focus on selling. For instance, another winery had given a shipping box to us and GB sold is one for almost $10. I understand it's a business, but good customer service makes me feel good about spending money, not disappointed.

No one talked over our heads with technical information but, were able to gain all the information we needed about the wines and the property. We also found the perfect spot for our daughters wedding..."hopefully a few years down the road"

Our tasting host provided a lot of great history about the winery and helped us arrange for a tour of the wine cave from one of the owners.

I learned a great deal about wine making, and got to enjoy many really excellent wines. It was a GREAT experience!

Be sure to make a reservation, they tend to stay busy. And when you're done, go around the corner to their sister winery Bartholomew Park. You won't regret it!

Wonderful. Loved that Rob gave us the tour, made it more special. Great wine and beautiful place. The cave part was unique. Didn't like the light pours for the $40 fee, nor that they wouldn't do complimentary tastings in the room after the cave tour. I had bought a membership at the conclusion, one of the perks was complementary tastings.and they said no because we "already had a tasting" that day

Rob was extremely hospitable and educated us on their excellent heritage wines and the history of the winery. The food pairings were excellent which included smoked salmon, venison, wild boar, sirloin and huckleberries. For a top tier experience we highly recommend.
