Very informative talk with the man at the tasting and interesting tour of the manmade 'cave' where wine is stored. Coupons from the hotel (Best Western plus in Sonoma) made it very good value for money.

Arrived at the Kunde Winery just before the 1:00 pm. We researched that there was a free cave tours throughout the day. Luckily, the next tour would depart at 1:00 pm. The tour, while not as in depth as Benziger, was very fun and casual. Our tour guide talked a little about how the movie, "Bottle Shock" was filmed at this winery. We also got to walk through the aging caves. If you've never entered a wine cave, the smell is wonderful. You are instantly reminded of what red wine smells and tastes like.

We opted for the $10/p wine tasting. It consisted of three whites (two Chards and another white) and three reds (Pinot, Zin, and Cab). Our server was great and very friendly...and it was only his third weekend working. We even got a bonus pour of their Port and a salted chocolate piece. Yum!

We ended up buying a bottle of the 09 Chard, a bottle of the Cab, and two bottles of the port. We were told if we bought four bottles, our tasting fee would be waived!

We took a (free) cave tour which was great. The wine tasting at1400 feet was also fantastic, June was a perfect guide. The tasting room is very nice, we brought sandwiches and had a bottle of wine on the large outdoor patio. Great time!

I LOVED Kunde!

We missed the mountain top tasting and did not know about the tour (What can I say . . . we did not visit trip advisor before our trip!) but we still had a great time!

The tasting room was big and there was plenty of friendly staff to help customers. It was not crowded at all!

As Kunde was the last winery of the day for us, our group of 7 decided to skip the tasting and buy a few bottles of Sauvignon Blanc to sit outside with. (After lots of Chardonnay at other wineries it was a tasty change)

The grounds are beautiful!!!!!
I will be back -- and maybe next time it will be via horseback!

Our group did a mountain top tasting which I highly recommend for the best most breathtaking views of the sonoma valley. Absolutely loved it. Worth every penny!!!
