Spring Release Event
Once a year we invite our wine club members to a Spring Release at Ledson Winery & Vineyards in the heart of Sonoma Wine Country. We unveil our spring wine releases and share the first taste with them. At this event in April, we enjoyed the 1950s, one of the most fun exciting times in history. Our guests strolled throughout the Castle tasting incredible wines, nibbling on mouth-watering appetizers, mingling with friends and chatting with our winemaking team while listening to classic hits from the 50s. Everybody had a rocking good time. The YouTube video version has subtitles.
Harmony Foundation for Children
The Harmony Foundation for Children exists to break down the barriers between need and assistance by providing direct financial support to at-risk or in-need youth whose record of personal responsibility, dedication and achievement is imperiled by circumstances or events beyond their control. In particular, the Harmony Foundation for Children works to enhance philanthropy and strengthen our sense of community by providing help to those underprivileged children whose own families cannot.

Ledson Construction & Development
Steve Ledson, a long-time resident of Sonoma with roots dating back to the 1800, purchased the famous 35-acre Armstrong property in 1986. It is located on the historic eastside of Sonoma just blocks from Sonoma’s historic central plaza. Steve developed the land into 53 lots and restored the Armstrong mansion. Each home, designed and built by Steve Ledson, offers a quaint setting in a classic era reflecting the character of the old town of Sonoma and so many other historic towns in America. Utilizing the feel of the architecture found throughout Sonoma, Steve designed and built a stunning array of architecturally different homes. Each home is set back from the street as well as one another. By capitalizing on these techniques, Steve created an extraordinary, peaceful, and private neighborhood with picturesque open spaces and visually charming estate homes.
