THE LEDSON FAMILY spans five generations and more than 150 years of farming and winemaking in Sonoma County. About 90 percent of Ledson wine is produced from meticulously farmed estate vineyards, resulting in a superior wine portfolio. Ledson consistently produces small-lot, 90-plus scoring wines that are popular with judges and wine critics throughout the world.

Ledson Winery & Vineyards, affectionately known as “The Castle,” is a feast for the eyes in the heart of Sonoma Valley. It is nestled among 20 acres of estate vineyards and inviting grounds dotted with ancient oaks. The massive building is an architectural showpiece designed and built by founder, Steve Ledson.

Guests are offered a complete tasting experience and a variety of options from dropping in for a general tasting at one of three separate tasting bars, to the best-of-the-best: a tasting in one of the personal tasting suites hosted by one of Steve’s personally trained winemaker assistants. For an exceptional and very private tasting experience, members of Terraces, the wine club’s top tier, also have the option to visit the Mountain Terraces Estate Vineyard, located some 2,500 feet above the Sonoma Valley floor.

Ledson Winery and Vineyard’s broad range of wines includes Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, Chardonnay, Rosé, Pinot Noir, Malbec, Merlot, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Barbera, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Bordeaux and Rhône blends, and a late harvest Zinfandel.

Hungry guests are inspired at The Castle’s gourmet marketplace. After a tasting, many decide to stay for a delicious picnic on The Castle’s appealing grounds. There’s a great selection of local and unique cheeses, meats, fresh sandwiches, salads, and treats, plus many private-labeled Ledson delicacies, such as flavored mustards, olive oils, and rich chocolate sauces, available for tasting. When the options seem overwhelming, Ledson Winery & Vineyards has a dedicated wine concierge to assist visitors as they plan an upcoming visit to Sonoma County. Ledson’s impeccable service means every detail is carefully coordinated and tailored to each individual palate.

Besides a stunning wine tasting experience at The Castle in Sonoma Valley and above it all at the Mountain Terraces Estate Vineyard, Ledson offers a wonderful place to relax and unwind at Ledson Hotel on Sonoma Plaza. From the excellent wines to the above-board hospitality, Ledson Winery & Vineyards is dedicated to showcasing Sonoma wine country at its absolute best.
