Giant Pumpkin Festival

Grapes aren’t the only crop growing at Kunde Family Estate. We’re also raising Giant Pumpkins! Join us on Saturday, October 26th for the Giant Pumpkin Contest. Cash prizes will be presented for first, $1,000 award, and second place, $500 award, for the overall heaviest pumpkins. But that’s not all - other attractions include a Junior Pumpkin Carving Contest and a Best Pumpkin Dessert Recipe Contest. There’s a little fun for everyone! Along with the enjoyment of experiencing the beautiful Kunde Estate and tasting the Kunde’s estate grown, sustainably farmed wines.
