“Stunning”

Ledson Winery & Vineyard
Ranked #2 of 5 Tours in Kenwood
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 1, 2013

Our visit to Ledson is summed up with one word "Stunning". We had a pleasurable tasting with Amanda with her southern charm and easy style. Her knowledge of the wine was evident with out ever being overbearing or pretentious. We explained the style of wine we enjoyed and Amanda took care of the rest. She even secured a couple of Pinots left over from another tasting that we would otherwise not have tasted. Our time with Amanda was MADGICAL (our special word). The grounds are impeccable and the Ledson Castle is truly beautiful. We finished our day at Ledson with a sandwich and pasta salad from the onsite Deli, relaxing outside, sitting in the warm sun overlooking the vineyards. Amanda even provided us a glass of the special Pinot to enjoy with our lunch. We could have stayed all day. Sitting outside in such a beautiful setting, sipping gorgeous wine, transformed us to a tranquil and peaceful place that was exactly what we had been seeking. To top off our experience, we enjoyed Scarlet and Pistol's photo shoot for Vineyard Dogs! We are not sure Pistol ever stood still for a picture but we can't wait to see the final result. We would easily recommend a Ledson visit to our friends and family.

Kevin was a super great wine pourer. We all loved him. The wines were very good but a little pricey. Go to enconcierge and get their 2 for 1 wine tastings....they even had one that was 2 for 1 AND upgraded from 6 to 9 wines. This property is BEAUTIFUL!!!

Nothing special about the tour, but it's worth a stop for lunch to enjoy their deli and the view. The tastings are a bit like herding cattle, not any backstory was given to us on the winery, and there was too much of a hard sell on their club. Was was ok, huge selection which was nice if you're looking for variety w a big group.

Ledson Winery is one of our favorites! From the beautiful winery & vineyards to the knowledgeable and friendly staff your visit will be worth a stop. The wine is absolutely devine! We are club members, but always love to visit to try what is coming out. Friends have joined the club because these wines are wonderful. You must visit the "castle" on your trip to the wine country!

The wine tasting is pretty standard, if you're into that sort of thing. I don't drink, but I have taken friends who do here. There's the standard fee for wine tasting, which I believe is 4 tastes for $10. My friends liked the wines and bought a couple of bottles.

The house and grounds are an attraction, though. There's a story about the house (which I have forgotten, but the staff can surely tell you it). And it's a pretty impressive house. Bring your camera.
