Q&A with Winemaker Steve Ledson

Do you have a favorite varietal to work with? Why? 
Zinfandel. It is one of the oldest varietals in Sonoma County. Our family has been making wine from Zinfandel grapes since the 1860s. I have learned the nuances that make Zinfandel what it should be. 
Your family’s winemaking legacy spans five generations. What winemaking wisdom have your predecessors offered you? You can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear. In other words, if you don’t grow impeccable grapes you can’t make impeccable wine.
What’s your most memorable food and wine experience? Why? Drinking a bottle of Russian River Valley Pinot Noir paired with fresh rainbow trout just caught out of a lake at 8,000 feet in the Trinity Alps.
Ledson Winery produces wines from an array of grape varieties. Why offer such a diverse portfolio?  We pride ourselves on making a wine for every palate and pocketbook. Not often does someone walk out of Ledson without at least a bottle.
About 90 percent of Ledson wines are produced from estate-grown grapes. How does this influence the wines? My family’s theory has always been that wine is made in the vineyard. A great winemaker just knows how to bring out the natural characteristics of the terroir. 
Food truck or fine dining? Where do you like to eat? For me, food and wine consumed in the wilderness always tastes better than at home or in any restaurant in the world.
