The stuff worth experiencing happens off the beaten path. Off the beaten path is where it is real. No place embodies this more than Sonoma. And no one has been doing it longer or with more zeal than Gundlach Bundschu.

Named one of Travel + Leisure’s best wineries in Sonoma, Rhinefarm Estate has been owned, farmed and operated by our family since 1858. Our winery is known for our warm people, our cool climate, and our creative spirit. We make approachable, unpretentious wines of outstanding quality. Come on over and visit us for a wine tasting, vineyard experience or live music to get to know our laid-back Sonoma vibe. We are open every day 11am – 4:30pm for tastings and tours by appointment only, with the last reservation at 3pm. Our property is family and dog-friendly. Please, no outside food. We offer an assortment of cheese, charcuterie boards and other seasonal fares for purchase.

We will be closed Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Day.
