“Delicious wine with breathtaking views”
Reviewed January 3, 2012

I thoroughly enjoyed my recent trip to Sonoma and the Kinder Winery Saturday morning hike was the highlight. It was a nice 4 mile hike with a thorough lesson in the grapes they grew, the age of the vines and the Kunde family history. I would definitely go back and take others.

“One of the very best anywhere!”
Reviewed December 22, 2011

Having been to wineries all over the world, this was really a superb standout! We had the great fortune to be attended by a first-class cellar manager whose capacity to share the wines and explain then, was exceptional. We also loved the wines, much to my surprise, as I have never been a great fan of California wines, so this was another eye-opener which really satisfied the taste buds and other senses. We ended up joining the Kunde Wine Club and buying a stash of wines to enjoy at leisure with food at home. Much fun has been had matching food with specific wines.

The winery itself it beautiful and set in a spectacular place. In good weather and at specific times, there are options to visit parts of the wine estate and also, wine club members have the option to use a very comfortable, private tasting area.

If you are in the Sonoma, put this winery at the very top of your list!

“Beautiful grounds, friendly staff, good wine!”
Reviewed December 12, 2011

We normally wouldn't have stopped at a place like Kunde, because we were trying to hit "smaller" places, and Kunde is one of those places with a big parking lot (like bus tours stop there). But I had to go to the bathroom and it looked pretty, so we figured we'd try it. I'm so glad we did! The staff was incredibly friendly, the wine was yummy (so was the chocolate they gave us) and the free cave tour was so cool. Our tour guide told us about the movie "Bottleshock" (parts of it were filmed on the estate), which we rented when we got home. It was really fun spotting the scenery we recognized from our tour.

“beautiful location, ok wines”
Reviewed December 10, 2011

Beautiful location, OK wines, nice staff members. Our group had 2 pourers. The gentleman was chatty and nice. The lady was a little stand-offish and didn't seem very interested in telling us more about the wines.

Not the biggest fan of their wines; we did a $10 tasting, which was waived when my friend bought 2 bottles of wine.

“Great winery”
Reviewed November 16, 2011

A welcoming winery - everyone was very friendly - wine was fantastic and not over priced. Make sure you take the cave tour and the outside area is a great place for lunch.
