Savor Sonoma Event 2010
My husband and I and two other couples had the pleasure of experiencing our first Savor Sonoma weekend. We decided to start at the top of the valley which was Ledson, by far the most awesome winery in the Sonoma Valley. After meeting all the wonderful greeters at the door and armed with our wine glasses, info and a wristband, we were off on a wonderful wine adventure. The food was spectacular and I'm working on perfecting my version of the carmelized onion and goat cheese tarts we tasted at station one. After seven stations of tasting such a wonderful blend of wines we decided to relax a bit in the picnic area under the shady tree. We were then welcomed by Kelsey Ledson and he gave us a bit of history on the building and what to expect for the remainder of the day's activities. It's not too often that one is treated with such open arms as we were at Ledson Winery and Vineyards. You're number one on our list and look forward to returning real soon. Also, we've all decided that we're going to make the Savor Sonoma event an annual getaway each Spring.

To whom it may concern
We were at your wonderful winery last Fri, March 19. Mike (ext 117) was our taster and did a great job. He even introduced us to Mr. Ledson, a real honor. We spent over 2 hrs at your winery tasting many superb wines and exploring the castle and grounds.
After meeting Mr. Ledson, we were given many extra tastings, and loved them all. My friends, Mel and Dawn Lute joined your wineclub and bought a case of wine. My wife and I (Andrew and Beth) did not join your club, as we are already members of Baldacci in Napa. We did buy 6 bottles of wine though!!
I just wanted to thank you for a very special tasting and the priviledge of meeting Mr. Ledson. I am enclosing a picture we took with Mr. Ledson. I can't wait to go back to your winery. We will get some bottles from the Lutes until then. I have also highly recommended your winery to my colleague who will be in your area this coming fall.
Recent Visit to Ledson
just a brief thank you from my wife Dawn and I for the great time we had during our recent visit to the winery. We were there Friday March 19th, 2010, on our second visit to the Napa/Sonoma area from Ohio with our friends Beth and Andy. We happened to mention to Mike D. who was pouring for us, that we had tasted a number of Ledson wines our friends obtained as wine club members. We were impressed with the wines and resolved to visit when we came back out to Napa/Sonoma. The visit was well worth it. After hearing our story, Mike introduced us to Steve Ledson and we had a nice chat and posed for a photo. Steve liked hearing that his wines were well received in Ohio and asked Mike D. to pour several library wines that had been opened earlier for the staff to taste. We enjoyed everything we tasted and ultimately joined the wine club. Mike D. was a real pro and we enjoyed the atmosphere and the hospitality.

My husband and I visited your wonderful winery in Sonoma this past October and had several bottles of Ledson wine shipped to our New Jersey home. Last night for New Year's Eve we thoroughly enjoyed our treasured bottle of Ledson Malbec with our dinner. Our guests could not believe how smooth and delicious the wine tasted. Thank you for making such wonderful wine. Happy New Year! Marjorie Wold
