From the web site: "Six generations of the Bundschu family have farmed our estate vineyard at the southernmost tip of Sonoma Valley. We’ve been enjoying the beauty of the site and the exquisite character of its wines for 150 years, and invite you to spend a few hours getting to know the place, the wines, and the people that make Gundlach Bundschu unique."

Cave tours are available by reservation for $20, which includes wine tasting. It is about a half-hour long and it changes about 3 times a year.

This year the winery is offering a special tour: a two-hour tour of the vineyards in a Pinzgauer all-terrain vehicle. The tour includes wine tasting in the vineyards, a cave tour, and a taste of their Limited Edition Vintage Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, all for $40/person, truly a unique experience. It starts at 11:15am, Friday through Sunday through October 2, and resservations are required - call 707-938-5277. See this video for a preview and this web page for more information.

Personal comments: This is one of my favorite wineries. Besides the history represented here, there is a wonderful picnic area and great views of the vineyards and the sourthern end of Sonoma Valley. My family has attended many theatre events here in the summer, where having a picnic dinner on the hill above the stage is a treat not to be missed. - Roy Tennant

The very nice picnic facilities, with bathrooms.

Murals that honor the vineyard workers surround the wine vats.

The outdoor theatre that is in heavy use during the summer, from Shakespeare to concerts.
