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.
