With its cultish following and flare for colorful tasting parties (think Prohibition-themed romps, elf-themed holiday fêtes and rowdy wine club shindigs in spots like New Orleans and Memphis), we’re pretty sure Gundlach Bundschu’s (gunbun.com) upcoming “Deed Day” celebration to commemorate the Sonoma winery’s 150th anniversary will be an unforgettable affair.
Festivities get underway at California’s oldest family-owned and -operated winery at 11:00am on March 12, with a special ceremony slated from 11:30am to noon to pay tribute to the Sesquicentennial anniversary of the signing of the original deed to the property in 1858. Special tastings and tours will follow, and discounts on wine purchases will be available throughout the day. And although “Deed Day” is scheduled to wrap up at 4:30pm, fans are invited to continue celebrating with the family throughout the year, since the 12th marks the kick-off to what they promise will be a yearlong anniversary celebration.
Given that it’s “Gun Bun,” we’d expect nothing less.
