Average Bottle Price
“Kunde Family Estate is one of the most unique properties in the Sonoma Valley and the quality of its estate-grown, sustainably farmed fruit is a winemaker’s dream,” said Long. “My goal is to not only produce the absolute best terroir-driven wines possible, but to also uphold the legacy of the Kunde family by letting the vineyards speak through each bottle of wine I craft.”
Practices & Techniques
As 100% estate produced wine, each bottle speaks to the distinct soil, climate and topography of our fifth generation sustainably farmed property, nestled in the heart of Sonoma Valley. Nature is the dominant force in our terroir-driven winemaking approach. Sun-drenched days, moderated by cool coastal fog and southerly wind, combine with volcanic gravelly soils and dramatic topography. The result is an ideal backdrop for creating balanced fruit, and full-flavored, complex wines. As winemakers and stewards of the land, we guide the process from vine to bottle by promoting healthy vineyards, walking every row, and sampling every barrel.
Each fall, grapes are hand-harvested in small batches during the cool early morning hours, then gently crushed and de-stemmed at the winery. We employ classic winemaking techniques for all of our estate wines, including the use of native yeasts during fermentation, sur lie aging prior to racking to enhance complexity and depth, and barrel aging in a mix of French, European and American oak for overall balance in the final blend.
