This was our second time at gb. We returned after remembering 6 years ago how much we enjoyed this place. This time, We did the Pintgauer tour with Rob Gundlach (great, great, great grandson of the man who started this winery). He was great. Very knowledgeable, personable and kind. We loved the wines so much, we joined their wine club... More

We are not very knowledgeable about wines. Doing a regular wine tasting seemed like a waste of time for us. We saw that Gundlach Bundschu offered something called a Pinz Spinz. This is a winery tour in something called a pinzgauer, an Austrian army vehicle. A guide drove us out into the vineyard where we were served wine and cheese... More

We visited GB today for the first time in many years. They have a great variety of experiences available and a nice picnic area with view (beware though during harvest the bees are out in force and you cannot really do a picnic). This is an old winery and the history is cool. Wines are just solid, not outstanding, but... More

A group of 4 of us decided to do this tasting tour. It was a 10-12-person, Pinzgauer Austrian Army Vehicle, which drives you thru their winery. We started with the white wine, then had 4 others through out various stops along the way. We were able to get out of the truck, stop along the way for wine and pictures.... More

We hosted a cave tour the day following our daughter's wedding in Sonoma. The staff's hospitality, and especially Brooke's attention to detail, made it memorable for our guests. We had a relaxed and informative tour with tastings, and guests enjoyed visiting over lunch on the patio. We presented our daughter and son-in-law with a wine club membership for their wedding...

We were made feel very special upon arrival with a nice complimentary taste of wines to come, our private tour guide was just so knowledgable and the wines were just great especially as we got the history of the whole place - can definitely recommend to anyone looking for a good wine tour

The wine was great but we were regaled with the stories associated with the founding of the vineyard and the ups and downs of the roughly 160 year history. Fascinating. Beautiful spot. Delicious wines. Joined their Bacchus club to keep receiving future vintages. Highly recommend a visit but make a reservation first.

We were a party of 8 and the historic room ($20 pp)was full so they advised us of the picnic table tasting ($30 pp) or the shack with bottles of wine for sale to take to the top with picnic tables and a fantastic view. We had a Gewürztraminer and a cuvée that everyone enjoyed. We bought cheese there and... More

Kate made us feel welcome on our tour. The joint was jumping, but we still felt we got a friendly, relaxed experience and learned a lot about the winery and some history of the area as well. I was afraid that it would be too crazy, but it was actually a really fun tour and I would do it again!
