Setting 

Nestled in the foothills of the Mayacamas Mountain Range, Gundlach Bundschu Winery offers breathtaking views of vineyards and unforgettable sunsets. For six generations and over 160 years, the Bundschu family has farmed the Rhinefarm estate vineyard at the crossroads of the Sonoma Valley, Carneros and Napa Valley appellations.

Wine +

The wine is good at Huichica. Gundlach Bundschu has a diverse portfolio of highly rated and yummy wines all of which will be available to sample and purchase in the Historic Tasting Room during the festival. Additionally, select wines will be available by the glass and bottle at satellite bars throughout the property.

food +

We work to integrate local tastemakers and vendors who share our belief that nice people, great music, and great produce are best experienced in beautiful places.

Beverages +

Aside from wine, we offer Fort Point beer, Topo Chico sparkling water, Revive Kombucha, Golden State Cider, Verve coffee and a variety of other NA beverages.

Marketplace +

Huichica features a variety of local vendors showcasing unique artisanal products for your shopping pleasure.

Kid Zone +

Huichica is an extremely family friendly festival! Children 12 and under get free admission and we have a kid zone dedicated to entertaining little ones ages 3 and up with crafts and games (Saturday only, parent supervision required).
