WINE OF THE MONTH CLUB SELECTION
This selection isn’t just a great play on
words, it’s a great wine. As most of you
know, Bacchus is the Greek god of wine.
Our friends at Gundlach Bundschu in
Sonoma decided to update the term
and put a modern spin on it.
Jeff Bundschu is president of the winery
and the 6th generation of the Bundschu
family to make wine. It’s a long history, in
which the family takes great pride.
The winery was founded in 1858 and is
the oldest uninterrupted family-owned
winery in California. It is also the second-
oldest winery in the state, behind Buena
Vista Winery, also in Sonoma.
Since the early 70s, Gundlach Bundschu
has been known for outstanding value
and great wine. Their proprietary white
and red wines have long been among
the biggest selling wines in the country.
Rockus Bockus is Jeff’s fun project, where
he gets to show off his offbeat humor,
but still keep the family core values at the
forefront with a fabulous blend.
Our selection is no less than five different
varietals. They have four of the five
Bordeaux varietals - Cabernet Sauvignon,
Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot - and a
splash of Zinfandel is added for good
measure.
The result is a bold, juicy offering with
lots of plum, anise and spice flavors that
would make Bacchus proud.
