We toured 5 wineries in the area on this day. We had a great day but our last stop was Kunde and I'm so glad it was. Nothing else could compare. We reserved the mountaintop tasting and I've seen very few places more beautiful. The wine was also fantastic. If you wonder if it's worth the cost, yes absolutely!

I have been a win club member at Kunde in the past and while their wine is good, I was disappointed with the tasting fee. I had just spent 2 weeks in Paso Robles where the wineries waive the tasting fee if you purchase a bottle. This isn't the case at Kunde.

Dear Bob, I regret that you found your visit to our winery disappointing. We have maintained our policy of not refunding the tasting fees for many years now, much the same as numerous wineries in our area. One of the perks of wine club membership at Kunde, is that you receive complimentary tasting at our main bar area and in... More

Highly recommend stopping by Kunde! I took my parents out to wine country as a thank you gift and we were on our last day of touring. Day one and two were very planned, however, on our departure day we decided to stop by a few wineries. I am so happy we did! Kunde is amazing and while a big... More

We had not planned to visit this winery, but since we were a little early for an appointment nearby we thought "what the heck- let's check out this "Kunde" place..." Boy, am I glad we did. Even though I am much more of a red wine enthusiast, it was their Reserve Chardonnay that (clearly) stood out: very rich, very complex,... More

Our 2nd visit but our first mountain top tasting. Danny our guide was terrific. We learned so much about the winery and family... even saw a bobcat as we drove up the mountain. Wines were fantastic (already wine club members) but to sip wines while on top of the mountain was amazing. Everyone needs to treat themselves to this experience.... More

I do a fair amount of wine tasting in Napa, Sonoma and Paso Robles, and this winery had some of the best service I've experienced in a while. Kat was friendly, responsive and welcoming. After a few not-so-impressive experiences that day, it was nice to experience some good wine in an atmosphere that didn't feel stuffy or membership pushy. Thank... More

We came here the day after Christmas... I imagine other days are far busier. We appreciated the friendly atmosphere and the interesting history of this estate winery. The wines were great. We were focusing on whites today, and we found a fantastic Chardonnay to take home. The old vine zin (113 years old!) was wonderful too. Next time we'll plan... More
