This is a wonderful family owned winery. The estate is beautiful. We started with one wine taste at the main building, then our guide took the group of 8 to the top of the mountain for the remainder of the tasting. It was gorgeous. You could see the vineyard from above and it was breathtaking. We completed our wine flight... More

There are a number of different ways to experience a wine tasting here. From a tour through the winery ending on the mountain top tasting wine to the classic belly up to the wine tasting bar. The service was friendly and very informative. And of course the selection of wines to taste was diverse and all high quality.

Kunde estate is located in a beautiful setting. We did a tasting and then a complimentary tour that takes you through the vineyards and in the impressive case (tours start every hour). Our guide was very good.

The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The wine is excellent. The setting is beautiful. If I was going to recommend one winery to visit in Sonoma County this might be the one.

We book a 2:30 mountain top tasting and ended up being the only ones in the tour. The guide was very good and the history and stories of the vineyard were interesting. At the top for the tasting were sweeping beautiful views of the estate and some wonderful wines.

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
