  • For over a century, five generations of the Kunde family have farmed our 1,850-acre estate in the heart of Sonoma Valley. Our winemaking mission is to carry on that tradition by crafting elegant, estate-grown, sustainably farmed wines with a real sense of place—beautifully balanced and expressive of our dramatic vineyard landscape.

    We welcome you to visit our warm, inviting tasting room where guests enjoy our Estate grown wines including wines sold exclusively at the winery. Open daily from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

    Tastings are $15 per person for our Main Bar Tasting, $30 per person for our Kinneybrook Room Tasting including a tasting of winery exclusive and reserve wines along with pairings of artisan cheeses, and $60 per person for our Mountain Top Tasting; A 2-hour one of a kind journey to our tasting deck set at 1400 foot elevation above Sonoma Valley. Enjoy incredible views while tasting our most sought-after small production wines.

    Join us for our new Cave Tasting available now through March: Thursday through Sunday. This exclusive, intimate setting is carved into the volcanic hillside at the farthest reaches of our caves. Led by our wine educators, guests enjoy a barrel sample along with an in-depth tasting that explores our wines. Learn about our winemaking philosophy while tasting our winery exclusive and reserve tier wines. (1.5 hour experience)

    Guided tours of our aging caves are available daily at no charge and without appointment for groups of ten or less. Offered 11:00, 1:00 and 3:00. *Please Note: Cave Tours may not be offered during harvest season. We will be giving guided tours of the crush pad and demonstration vineyards instead.

    To schedule a private or group tour, please contact our Hospitality Department at (707) 833-5501, Extension 331 or [email protected]

    The hiking program at Kunde Family Winery is a unique opportunity to witness sustainable winegrowing and the grape to glass process firsthand. Guests will walk the property with either Fourth-Generation Winegrower, Jeff Kunde, or Sonoma Valley docent, John Hardman, both of whom have tremendous experience and passion for environmental education. Designed for outdoor and wine enthusiasts, these tours are nothing like your typical wine tasting. Hikes are moderately strenuous and take guests from the Sonoma Valley floor up 1,400 feet into the Mayacamas Mountain range.
