First of all, my thoughts and prayer are with you and your communities of Sonoma/Napa, please stay safe and strong. Please keep us update your needs and any volunteering/Fundraising opportunities we can participate. Our Saturday visit was wonderful, then feel devastated to learn the news. We do love to support the beautiful Sonoma/Napa community, and eager to contribute our help. -atsuko

The venue was lovely, but the service was severely lacking. We visited on a very busy Saturday, but nevertheless, we should be able to expect a decent value. The lady helping us was very pleasant, but she was pulled in too many directions and not able to focus on us. Of all the wineries we visited during our 4 day visit, this was the most disappointing.

Your wines, your people, your philosophy....simply wonderful!

Our host did a terrific job of introducing the wines and giving us a chance to enjoy the tasting experience. There was no pressure to buy. The wine was so great, it sold itself. We stopped downtown at the Chamber of Commerence and the gal there recommended a different winery to us. We found the Gundlach Bundshu winery on our way out of town and decided to come back the next day.

This is a very casual setting with a lovely patio overlooking a man made pond. There are no "classic" vineyard views. We tasted five of the offerings; however, were disappointed that in order to try the Gewürztraminer we would had to purchase a bottle. The Pinot Noir was the standout for our group. Service was friendly and casual. Conveniently located near Sonoma downtown.

They always treat us with the upmost respect as their guests & the grounds, the people, the care of which they treat their customers is, if not the best, it is ONE of the BEST!

The wines were delicious, the music (from the awesome record player) was fabulous and the energy was just what we were looking for to finish our tour of Sonoma wineries. Compliments to the winery and Britnee for a great experience.

The wines are very good, and our server, Kathyrn was very knowledgeable and personable. My only complaint was that we had a reservation for a "courtyard" tasting advertising great views. When we arrived, there was nothing reserved and we (apparently luckily) got a picnic table with no view at all. Because it was busy, the service was slow and the tasting took 2.5 hrs.

This winery tour was wonderful! Our guide was so knowledgeable, not just about Gundlach's history, but about all wine/grapes in general. There was not a single question that went unanswered, and the entire event was good-humored and interesting. I'm pregnant and couldn't even take advantage of the tastings, but I still loved it! Definitely recommend to anyone interested in wine.

Fantastic! Scott was knowledgeable, friendly and accessible. We happened to do this tour right after harvest, so production was happening all around us. Thought the staff was busy, they also made time to acknowledge our tour, offer some insights and even dole out some fresh juice samples. We went to learn more about the winemaking process, and this tour did not disappoint!

Touring the vineyard in the Pinzgauer was quite an adventure. Despite our many visits to GunBun, we saw areas that we've never seen before. Just riding in the Pinzgauer was fun. Rob's commentary was informative and we really enjoyed the stories he was able to tell us about growing up on the Rhinefarm.

We were in Sonoma on a record breaking hot weekend. Unfortunately, the Pinzgauer wasn't up to the challenge of lugging us all up the mountain. But an alternative plan was quickly set up and we had an informative tour of the vineyard and much cooler caves, while enjoying the wine and the charcuterie! What fantastic service by all! I would return in a heartbeat as we were well taken care of!
