2008 marks the 150th anniversary of Gundlach Bundschu Winery, a sixth generation family owned estate winery in Sonoma.

In keeping with the estate's longstanding appreciation of writing and performance, the Bundschu family is commemorating this historic milestone by creating a compelling work of art that shares the unique history and vibrant future of their family business.

The performance, a collaboration with The Marsh a preeminent San Francisco theater company, offers personal insights of a multi-generation family business set against a backdrop of the history of the US wine industry and California itself.
