Unique Winery Experience in Kenwood
The Ledson Family has been in Sonoma Valley for over 150 years. The exclusive Mountain Terraces tasting and vineyard tour are hosted by winemaker Steve Ledson or one of his assistant winemakers explaining their three different soil types, micro-climate and viticulture practices. Each one will provide guests with an engaging, fun and personal experience you don’t want to miss.
Ledson Winery is well known throughout the world for their small-lot production of impeccable wines – “One of Sonoma’s most consistently excellent producers,” said Anthony Dias Blue. Ledson wines encapsulate visions of five generations of family winemaking and viticulture techniques. Their philosophy is to adapt their 150 years of knowledge and experience to the unique terroir of each estate vineyards’ unique personality; therefore, every wine is an expression of each vineyards individuality. A confluence of dynamic old-world nuances refined over generations to express the new-world palate, “Making wine is not just a science it’s an art, a communion with nature; truly a lifestyle,” according to owner/winemaker, Steve Ledson.
Ledson Winery is known throughout the world as “The Castle.” With the most picturesque stately grounds, it is truly a destination estate. VinePair called it, “one of the top twelve impressive wineries of the world” and the Boston Globe said, “This castle is a must see.”
Whether you stop by for a general tasting or make reservations for a private tasting in one of their intimate tasting suites, you will have an experience like no other. Shop in their artisan marketplace where you can grab a picnic lunch to enjoy in their oak-studded grounds or by the cozy fireplace in the parlor.
At the luxurious boutique Ledson Hotel – located on the historic Sonoma Plaza – you can taste Zina Hyde Cunningham wines. The 150-year legacy of the Cunningham Family started in Mendocino County in 1865 where Zina Hyde Cunningham brought his vision of producing the very best wines from his winery and vineyards. If you plan ahead, you can also enjoy a stay at the old-world style hotel which was listed by Condé Nast Traveler as one of the top 100 hotels in the world.
