Fantastically warm and friendly staff, tasty cheese and charcuterie plates, and delicious wines. We sat outside in beautiful weather enjoying the views of the grounds - very nice estate. I was pleasantly surprised by the palatable-ness of the 1904 dessert wine, as I don't tend to enjoy sweet wines - best I've tried, as the finish doesn't linger like syrup... More

We booked a mountaintop tour and were a little hesitant because of the price. We sure were glad we went for it. The views were incredible and the wine even better. The tasting was fun, relaxed, interesting, and enjoyable. Our guide was fantastic (I wish we knew his name - 2:30 tour on 7/14) and made the experience. We were... More

Visited here with friends that included a mix of wine enthusiasts and non and all enjoyed the trip! The estate is beautiful! The free cave tours were very informative and the wine tasting was fun as the server was very helpful. We all would return so if you're in the area please go as you won't be disappointed!

Rather than rely on our hotel’s concierge, we went to the locals. Consistently, Kunde winery was mentioned as a must see. Our concierge, immediately verified that was one of Sonoma very best...after visiting Kunde, an understatement! What originally caught our attention was its mountain top tasting, yet unaware of the cost till there. Yet, definitely WORTH IT, especially if you... More

We have a vacation/weekend townhome in Napa and have been able to visit and join many wineries in Napa and Sonoma. We had driven by Kunde in April and saw a sign about Hereford Cattle tours which we thought would be interesting coupled with a wine tasting. Unfortunately we were pressed for time that day and didn't make it back... More

Dear TJ057, Thanks so much for the review. Anyone who likes cattle is certainly a friend of ours! If you'd like to see the cattle up closer, there's always a good chance on the Mountain Top tasting that you'll get to see them lounging with their baby calves right outside the entrance gates to this tasting site.

My wife and I visited Kunde as part of our full day of tastings in the Valley. The estate is beautiful. Our guide drove us to the mountaintop patio and wow what a view. I wish this was my backyard. We could have sat for hours. We were the only ones there, so it was very peaceful. We especially enjoyed... More

Beautiful grounds, scenery is awesome. Many photo ops here. The tasting room is nice, friendly people. Mary was our pourer and she was very helpful. We chose four bottles to send home. They arrived intact and very quickly, though I didn't receive a tracking and got a bit worried.
