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

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.
