The wine was lovely, but unfortunately we experienced less than satisfying bar service. Although we had a booking we seemed to have less attention than others and not much “chat” with our tasting. Also, we bought a bottle, but when at home realized the lady put the wrong one in our bag. So although we got a $50 bottle when we only paid $20, it is the cab Franc, which I didn’t like at all.

Our wine tasting was so informative I can't wait to come back. I know next to nothing about wine, only if it tastes good to me or not. I would gladly drink any of the wines we sampled.

We loved the historic tasting room. Our host was nice and appeared knowledgeable, but he never introduced himself. Also, because of the residual wildfire smoke, they were not doing any tastings outside, so the tasting room was extremely crowded and very noisy. Our host was very soft spoken, so it was very hard to hear him. This is the only winery of 12 that we did not purchase any wine.

I'm a wine club member and love GunBun. I made a reservation for the Vista Courtyard. When I arrived, it was closed. OK, I understand. But no space had been allocated for us in the historic winery. The tasting room was overwhelmed. When an associate finally noticed us at the bar she just poured wine without the courtesy of even a brief description of what we were drinking. Not normally like this!

We arrived on time for our tasting however 2 other groups who had the same time reservation as us were running very late. (+20 minutes). So we waited for them to arrive before we began. As an impact of that, our tasting seemed a little bit rushed compared to our previous experience doing this tasting. Also, at the end, it seemed like sales were being a little pushed on us by the host.

Rather mediocre wines, and the service was not great. We had a reservation, and were placed immediately at the bar, so that was the one plus. The hotst seemed to not know wine at all, focusing on what foods we'd pair the wine with, rather than information on where the grapes were grown. She gave more attention to larger groups, and we had to prompt our next pour. Wouldn't go back.
