“Very nice”

Ledson Winery & Vineyard
Ranked #2 of 5 Tours in Kenwood
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Did not do a wine tasting but it was nice to see the castle and grounds. They are very beautiful. It seemed like they had nice wine tasting. They had food you could purchase and eat on their grounds. The wood in the castle was beautiful. Seem very nice tasting rooms.

Thank you so much for stopping by The Castle and taking the time to write a review! Sorry you didn't do a wine tasting but we love having people walk the grounds and appreciate the detail Steve Ledson put into the architecture. Please come back again!

Worst winery experience we have ever had. Party bus with 30 drunks took over the place. We went through three servers within 15 minutes, each one walked away to go see the mob and just left us standing there. More like a fancy frat house than a winery. Too many other great choices in the area.

Sorry for the delayed response, but we wanted to research the situation. Unfortunately, we cannot always control the behavior to visitors at the winery. But please be assured that this is not an excuse. We want every customer to have an impeccable experience. We'd like to offer you a private tasting in a suite at the winery next time you are available to make up for your unfortunate experience. Please feel free to call 707-537-3810 ext 330 to set something up. Again, very apologetic for your bad experience.

We had a private tasting with Amanda H and she was fantastic. However, we felt a little like this place was the Disney of wine. It was quite kitschy. We were shocked our tasting fee wasn't waived when we bought wine. It was waived every other place we went and bought wine.

We also attended on the same day there was a Corvette show, so this place was PACKED. I wish they had told us that when we made our reservation. We would have visited on a different day.

We bought a wine package at a fund raiser which included Ledson. I was a wine club member for nearly 2 years and like their wines. This package included a private tasting upstairs in the castle which is very nice. The wine attendant was good, wines were decent but didnt include the light food (nuts, cheese, crackers, chocolate etc) that was supposed to be paired with the wine.When we got done we mentioned this to the staff downstairs and they said they would make us a plate to go as we had another tasting to go too. After asking about 3 times and 45 minutes later we got a small styrofoam plates with a few pieces of cheese, crackers and choc chips (they said they don't have chocolate). The manager finally got involved and seemed clueless and not that interested. I told our wine package firm (winspire) that they should consider another winery for future events. I was in Sonoma for a week and this was the lowlight of the trip. Steve Ledson would be ashamed.

Absolutely stunning setting in the middle of rolling vineyards. Taste incredible wine in a story book castle. The tasting room is beautifully finished in oak and overlooks splendid gardens. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and the wine is not to be missed. Try the zin even if you are not a zin fan, you won't regret it.
