Vista Courtyard Tasting on 11/17/18 3:00 PM

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.

We had a lovely time at Gundlach. Our hostess (Kathryn?) was super gracious even though we were 30 minutes late for our courtyard tasting. Because of the bad air quality, she set up our group of 8 for a tasting in the cave. Everyone enjoyed the ambiance and the hospitality. Kathryn even had our quarterly pickup ready to go!

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.

We have taken a number of tours at wineries in California, France and Italy. Cat is hands down the best tour guide ever. Plus the wine is really nice too. 5 stars and 2 thumbs up.

Server was pleasant, but offered no information on any of the wines. Felt like we were at a bar with someone who was just there to take our order, period. We ended up selecting a “Bart Park Syrah,” never told Bart Park was another unrelated winery altogether. Nice picnic area, but nothing that resembles a Napa or Sonoma Winery experience. Hugely disappointing.
