We just happened upon this wonderful winery along the main road in Sonoma. We actually experienced some very rude customer service next door at Kenwood Winery so we left and went to Kunde. A beautiful landscape and visitor center were the first things we encountered. The friendly, helpful staff was next. This winery is 100% estate wines, meaning everything they... More

enjoyed the free tour of the caves, enjoyed the wine tasting (we just stood at the bar but they had several different options for tastings) and the garden area was very nice.

We have been to quite a few tastings around the Napa and Sonoma regions of California now, and this one is easily head and shoulders above the others. We were shown around by Jordan, who is a 5th generation Kunde family member and he was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the vineyard and the history. We came here originally, to... More

Wade assisted us with our bar tasting. He has a great style and deep knowledge of wine. Kunde produces very good wine; I liked every wine he poured. If you are I the area, I highly recommend Kunde. After our tasting, we purchased a bottle and a cheese plate and lingered on their grounds, soaking up the beautiful views.

This was one of 5 wineries we visited in Sonoma, and easily our favorite. The grounds are picturesque, and we received fantastic service during our tasting. The wines we sampled were fantastic, and chose a couple of bottles to bring home. We hope to return to the region one day and take advantage of their mountain top tasting.

The grounds are well-kept and beautiful. The tasting areas are varied and exude quality. John at the tasting bar was knowledgeable, pleasant, and not pushy about the wine club. We joined the club because the delicious Barbera is not obtainable outside the winery. One benefit of the wine club is that the Mountain Top Tasting is half price. This is... More

Nothing makes me happier than to be proven wrong. Indeed, being disappointed in my last review was due to an unusual and difficult set of circumstances...as I suspected. Fortunately, the inconveniences I experienced during construction, and the harried staff my husband and I met on our first trip were completely eradicated on our second visit. Thank you, Marcia, for reaching... More
