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. Can't wait to take friends with us the next time.

Dear NurseMurphy,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write about us and for rating us 5 stars!. Our Mountain Top tasting site is so much fun and such a unique way to taste our estate grown wines all while experiencing the beauty of the entire Sonoma Valley. Glad you enjoyed!

We arrived at Kunde winery at 3:15 exited to experience the cave tour. Unfortunately we were late for the cave tour but we were entertained by a great wine expert, Kat in the tasting room. She led us through the tastes of Kunde and introduced us to the family heritage and pride of the winery. We were so impressed with Kat, that we joined the wine club and purchased a few bottles. She invited us to return the next day for a cave tour....even if she had to take us herself. Great winery, great experience.

Dear Kenwhenry,

Thank you so much for the great 5 star review! We appreciate you taking the time to write about us and greatly value your comments. I will make sure Kat knows of your compliments regarding her customer service. I'm not sure when your travels will bring you our way again (maybe a Wine Club event!), but you must try our Mountain Top tasting experience. A beautiful way to see the grandeur of the Sonoma Valley while tasting our estate grown wines. Comps on me for 2 upon your return.

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 you Kat!

Dear Daryagemini,

Thanks so much for the review! We appreciate you taking the time to write about us and glad you had a great experience with us. I'll make sure Kat is aware of your compliments. If your travels bring you our way again, you've just got to try our Mountain Top tasting experience. It's a gem - tasting our estate grown wines high up on the Mayacamas Mountain range as you overlook the beautiful Sonoma Valley. Comps on me for two upon your return.

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 ahead for mountaintop tasting or a tour. They produce and bottle right on site.

This is really a great stop on your tour... or perhaps your lone stop. There's also a nice spot for picnicking by the water outside.

We had a great time at Kunde. Wine was very good and service was great. Can't recall the name of our server, but he played in a band in SF. He did a great job and was really helpful and made the experience even better. Beautiful facility with great wines!
