“great place and great wines”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2014

To keep this short, we did 3 wineries today and this was the standout favourite. Lovely location, great staff, and more importantly great wine! Bought 2 bottles (sauvignon blanc and the zinfandel) and just generally had a great experience here - highly recommend.

Dear Polecatcaz,

Thank you so much for the great review and the 5 star rating! We appreciate you taking the time to write about us. The next time your travels bring you to the Sonoma Valley, you'll have to try our Mountain Top tasting site. It's an extraordinary was to taste our estate grown wines while you overlook the entire Sonoma Valley from our 1,400 foot elevation on the Mayacamas Mountain range. Comps on me for two upon your return.

“Beautiful with caves!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014 via mobile

Kunde is a must stop in Sonoma! Kat was fabulous during our wine tasting....very informative and generous! Her passion for the winery and the dogs, yes they have "working dogs" and tours with dogs, was definitely apparent! Dwight gave us a great tour of the caves!

Dear DosLozanos,

Thank you so much for the excellent review and for rating us 5 stars! We truly appreciate it. I will make sure Kat and Dwight are aware of your compliments. When your travels bring you back our way, you just have to try our Mountain Top tasting site. Incredible views that go along with our estate grown wines - a great way to spend a couple hours in an afternoon. Comps on my for 2 upon your return.

“Mountaintop tasting so perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014

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!

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2014 via mobile

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 the Kinneybroom Room for up to 4 people.
