Our group of 10 enjoyed seeing the cave system and the grounds. Sad to say that our guide (Barbara) was extremely pushy on their wine club and seemed to make a habit of trashing other wineries. Her knowledge of wine was also questionable... there are better places to visit.

I'll keep my review short and sweet since people don't enjoy reading book long reviews about places. My wife and just got back from another visit to Napa/Sonoma region, and this was our 2nd time to Gundlach Bundschu. We truly love this place, how fascinating the grounds are that they grow the grapes, the cave they bring you into for... More

We stopped here after lunch on our Napa tour with 3 other couples. The third winery of the day on a beautiful afternoon, we were very excited to enjoy the weather on the beautiful patio. While the view and the patio are beautiful, this was by far our worst stop in Napa or Sonoma. The service was horrific. We spent... More

The place is beautiful, their wines are over complicated, staff paid very little attention to describing the wine but they are attentive to sell overpriced add ons. That been said, we saw many young groups and couples enjoying themselves (maybe I'm too critical and old). A nice feature is that they are licensed to offer a picnic area

We went here based on our guide book and were kind of disappointed. Where was the "fairytale castle"? The pond is pretty and the grounds are good for a picnic, but there are better spots for that with better wine. The wine was good table wine, the shop was cute (but WOW overpriced) and the staff seemed disinterested and disengaged.... More

Stopped at this beautiful winery for a tasting. We were very disappointed in the focus on selling upgrades and membership with very little information provided about the wines themselves. Wines were ok but not worth enduring the upsell pitch.

I had a great visit to Gundlach Bundschu. Their attention to the details show in the great selection of wines. They have rich history in wine making and the folks there are down to earth and just fun. I have remained a fan of the wine and get shipments several times a year.

I love the laid back but passionate atmosphere of this winery. In the two trips we've taken to Sonoma, Gundlach is the only we returned to, this time while biking. It has pretty much everything I could want in a winery: beautiful views, plenty of serving space, helpful passionate staff pouring wines, and very tasty wines. It's easily accessible by... More
