Marking 155 years of Gun Bun
Gundlach Bundschu Winery will mark the 155th anniversary of its Rhinefarm Estate Vineyard with a celebration on Saturday, March 9, from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The Bundschu family will commemorate the date Jacob Gundlach signed the deed to their land with live music by Timothy O’Neil and Frankie Boots, grilled sausages and beer brats from Rosamunde Sausage Grill, and library tastings and anniversary pricing on select Gundlach Bundschu wines.
In addition to celebrating Deed Day, attendees are invited to join the winery’s effort to support the troops and, in exchange, receive a free tasting. Gundlach Bundschu has adopted the U.S. Army’s 370th Engineering troop currently deployed in Afghanistan, and is sending monthly care packages with letters, supplies and tokens to show support. Guests are asked to bring a multipack of granola bars for the troops, and will receive a complimentary tasting on March 9 or 10.
Gundlach Bundschu Winery is located at 2000 Denmark St., Sonoma.
Founded in 1858 and owned and managed by the sixth generation of the Bundschu family, Gundlach Bundschu is California’s oldest family-owned winery. The 175-acre Sonoma estate is located on the southwest slope of the Mayacamas Mountains, at the intersection of the Sonoma Valley, Carneros and Napa Valley AVAs. The diversity of elevation, aspects and soil types facilitate the cultivation of a variety of high quality wine varietals, with a special focus on cabernet, chardonnay and pinot noir. gunbun.com.
