“The Pinzgauer is my favorite way to get into the vineyard. It’s like having a couch on a tractor.” -Rob Bundschu

Have you ever set foot in a 100-year-old stone winery and tasted through a decade’s worth of fine wine made from that very same place? This seated tasting in our old winery barrel room is a profound representation of the unique history of our family and our original Sonoma winery and vineyard. Taste through a flight of five wines of old vine varietals that will leave you with a new appreciation of wine. This flight includes library vintages of Vintage Reserve and block-specific heritage wines that you won’t find anywhere else.
This private and explorative wine tasting is available for groups of nine or larger, and takes place on the “back side” of the property that you won’t see very often. Our 320-acre estate was dubbed “Rhinefarm” in 1858 by our founder, Jacob Gundlach, after his homeland in Germany. Flanked by historic stone buildings and barns, this intimate and idyllic location is sure to be the highlight of your day. Kick back as your experienced and eccentric host guides your group through a memorable flight of five of our wines with light bites. Enjoy our seasonal flight and small bites or add on the elevated experience which includes additional wines and a farm-to-table cheese and antipasti pairing that will enhance the flavors of the wine.
$85 per person + tax + 20% gratuity, 1.5-hour appt.
$15 per person add-on available, enjoy additional wines and a farm-to-table cheese and antipasti pairing.
No need to book the party bus, Gundlach Bundschu will now come to you through one of our Virtual Tasting experiences. During your hour-long tasting, two experienced wine educators will lead your group through an interactive virtual adventure in Sonoma history, viticulture and winemaking. All you need to do is provide us a guest list, and we’ll take care of the rest. We’ll ship your guests a curated selection of wines, pairing snacks and wine accessories to prepare them for the big day.
