Took a winery tour here on a Tuesday with a large group of 100 people in town for a business meeting. Employees were very accommodating and had no problem giving extra samples and answering strange questions. They were really great and treated everyone well. The caves are terrific and a wonderful setting for a wine tasting. Prices are not out... More

Loved the cave tour here! It's free and happens every half hour. The tasting room was slightly crowded, the wines were good, and the staff was very helpful and knowledgeable! There was corn hole set up outside on a lovely outdoor patio area which would have been nice on a prettier day. Would definitely recommend this winery!

We did the mountain tour and we treated to stunning scenery on a clear and sunny day. The wines were really great and well priced. So well priced that we signed up for the wine club. The Chardonnay and dessert wine were unexpectedly to my taste and I really loved both Cabernet sauvignons.

Our visit to Kunde was almost a year ago, but memories from the wine cave tour still linger. It felt as though we were entering Hobbit territory as we walked through the curved, wooden doors in the hillside. It was amazing to see all the different types of barrels labeled and stored in such a "cool" setting. We learned about... More

The Mountop Tour runs hourly. We arrived in time for the 12:30 tour, but it was booked as was the 1:30. Fortunately, we were able to book the last tour of the day, the 2:30. What luck! We had better viewing because the clouds gave way to a beautifully sunny sky, perfect for viewing. Also due to the chill and... More

Here is an opportunity to visit a wine cave on a tour for free on the Kunde Family Estate. When they open the doors to the wine cave (it is also a nicely informative tour) looking into the cave, it looks like such an endless hallway of barrels which is quite an effect. They are one of the oldest family... More

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
