Abbot’s Passage Winery and Mercantile

777 Madrone Road
Glen Ellen, CA 95442

Abbot’s Passage is located in the heart of Glen Ellen, nestled among rows of 80-year-old vines, and led by Katie Bundschu, the first woman vintner in six generations of Bundschu winemakers. Here, Katie embraces her affinity for terroir-driven, Rhone-style wines and field blending, crafting wines as richly layered as they are approachable.

AP embodies a playful, communal atmosphere—gather at the Field Tables and explore seasonal food pairings alongside a tasting flight, or simply relax in the shade of our Olive Grove trees. Estate Chef Kyle Kuklewski oversees the culinary program, showcasing locally-sourced, sustainable ingredients from nearby farms and farmers. Take part in some friendly competition at the iconic shuffleboard courts with friends, or shop the Mercantile, where you’ll find a carefully-curated selection of diverse treasures—from home decor and games to jewelry and glassware.
