Bunter Spring Winery

Bunter Spring Winery Bunter Spring Winery is a family operated “garage” winery in the Coombsville AVA in the southeast corner of Napa Valley. We make small-lot wines for sale to friends on our mailing list and to a few restaurants and wine shops. Bunter Spring was licensed in 2008, by Mark Bunter, after a brief (thirty years) internship in the wine cellars of people with names like Sebastiani and Mondavi. It all started in 1977 at Bill Cadman’s Tulocay Winery, just up the hill from Bunter Spring, where Mark took on a volunteer bottling line position. Mark got interested in winemaking and started making small batches of wine for fun in the family garage, with free grapes. After helping pick scrounged “second crop” grapes from nearby vineyards for a few vintages, Dad Arnold (Arnie) helped plant a small vineyard on his own property (evidently, owning a vineyard was deemed the lesser of two evils). Within fifteen short years, Arnie was ready to let Mark start selling the family Syrah instead of just giving it away. We don’t rush things at Bunter Spring.
