My friends and I totally enjoyed the tour and tasting. I have been on many tours and tastings (I live in Sonoma County) and this tour was delightfully different. What I liked best was how spaced out the actual wine tastings were while doing the tour and that we never felt rushed. Beautiful property.

Unfortunately my mom (mid 60s) caught her foot on the entrance sign/barrier and fell on our way in. She elected to proceed. The scenery on the patio is gorgeous. Wine good. Server distracted and forgot our cheese plate. Possibly because we were the last seated tasting of a long day?

This was a lovely and personal type of experience. My husband and I were greeted by Gabe, who told us an engaging history of the property, the winery, and its owners. The wines were excellent, and paired with well-chosen food. It was a nice change of pace from the usual tour of wine-making facilities and storage caves.

The grounds are very nice (odd the restrooms were a trek up a hill). The server was very knowledgeable. I was confused & annoyed by the note on menu stating we couldn't bring over food from the Girl & Fig Food Truck on your property. We paid $80 for 2 Vista Courtyard tastings so that should have allowed for us to purchase from your vendor. Wine was okay but we did not purchase any. Worth the visit

Gundlach Bundschu was everything I was hoping for and more. Driving up the beautiful driveway up to the tasting room provides breath taking scenary and rows of vineyards that seem to be endless. My family and I enjoyed a tasting inside, trying some truly incredible wines. We then got a bottle of the 2017 Gewürztraminer and enjoyed it out on the patio on a warm day. Beautiful experience, thank you.

Rob was so gracious and knowledgeable. The wine and small bites experience was one of the best we've done. It was quiet (no bachelorette parties to be found) and there was no rush. The views of the vineyards from Mary's house were breathtaking. The wines were exquisite, which is why we purchased a half case. We would do this again in a heartbeat.
