Very nice small family owned winery. The person pouring our tasting was very nice & knowledgable of wine making & the history of this winery.

Thank Rich H

We stopped here on our recent Segway tour and were delighted that this was on our tour for the day. Katherine in the tasting room was extremely friendly and knowledgeable and was more than happy to talk about the six generations of family who run the winery as well as the recent fires. The wines are delicious and the setting is beautiful. Will definitely return on my next trip to Sonoma!

I love hearing about the history of the wineries. Gundlach was no exception. They do have a general public tasting room, but we had arranged for a private tour. The tasting was in the house that the grandparents had built. Gundlach has been a family business for 160 years. Kind of neat to hear about how the winery has evolved through generations. The tasting room overlooks the a significant portion of the vineyard, which offered some great views. The wine was very good (Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs).

Wow... I was in awe of the view and the events that were happening especially the Traveling Spectator Troupe. The wines were delectable at a great price point. We did the tour including the cave and we couldn’t have asked for a better tour guide, Cat! Cat was fu&3$;ing AMAZING! I loved her banter, quick wit and extreme knowledge of the wines and history of the property. Highly recommend!

I had the pleasure of visiting here recently, the tour was selected and arranged by my son who lives in Silicon Valley. He has excellent taste which was proven once again. The grounds, though no huge, were lovely. Two outdoor restroom facilities are always a good thing. The tour inside the caves was informative with plenty (but not too much) wine sampled. Our guide was lovely, charming and knowledgeable and the wine making process and how G-B does things. She also covered the affect of the awful fires that devastated the are October 2017. Fortunately they only had minimal damage. The gift shop and patio area are great as well.

Highly recommended for a lovely way to spend a hour or two in Sonoma.
