Gundlach Bundschu Winery
Gundlach Bundschu’s 153-year-old estate vineyardis located 35 miles north of San Francisco on the southwesterly slopes of the Mayacamas Mountain Range. Located at the southernmost point in Sonoma Valley, flanked by the Carneros district to the south and Napa Valley to the east, Rhinefarm has a unique combination of steep hillsides and cool valley floor sites, allowing them to grow a broad variety of wines at a very high-quality level.
Rhinefarm’s terrain below 150-feet elevation is ideally suited for ealier-ripening, high-acid varieties. Cool air settles over the valley floor, where ancient bay waters deposited mineral-rich sediment and pockets of light stream gravel in the Huichica clay-loam soils. The focus is on Pinot Noir, Gewürztraminer and Chardonnay on this gently-sloping terrain, where growing conditions consistently deliver minerality and focused acidity.
