In October of 2020, Ledson Winery & Vineyards, with its longstanding presence in the heart of Sonoma Valley Wineries, was awarded the honor of “San Francisco’s Bay Area Best and Brightest Companies to Work for” by the National Association for Business Resources.
Furthermore, our company was once again named one of the “Best Places to Work in the North Bay” by the North Bay Business Journal
As a longtime Kenwood, CA and Sonoma Valley business, we are proud and humbled to be once again chosen from among so many top-notch companies for our employee commitment.
Why Ledson Winery & Vineyards was Chosen
According to the Wine Industry Advisor, the North Bay Business Journal award selection process selected Ledson Winery after evaluating overall performance, employee ratings, recommendations, and other criteria of 109 candidate organizations. Determining factors included survey results, responses from management and non-management staff, and written comments from employees.
Winning the San Francisco Bay Area “Best and Brightest Companies to Work For” further underscored our unyielding commitment to a thoughtful, innovative approach to our people resources management.
To choose the winner, an independent research organization measured the Best Practices of candidate businesses in a broad range of categories. These included financial, medical, non-profit, and many types of companies.
In the end, Ledson Winery & Vineyards was chosen based on superior scores in:
- Benefits and Employee Solutions
- Employee Enrichment
- Engagement and Retention
- Employee Education and Development
- Selection and Orientation
- Employee Achievement and Recognition
- Communication and Shared Vision
- Diversity and Inclusion
- Work-Life Balance
- Community Initiatives
- Strategic Company Performance
Our Commitment to Our Team
We at Ledson Winery & Vineyards are grateful, highly honored, and humbled to be the recipients of these exclusive honors. Respect for all associates’ welfare has been a driving philosophy since the five generations of Ledsons began farming and many other activities in and around Sonoma County over a century and one-half ago.
These latest awards, combined with the 2020 “Winemaker of the Year” accolade at the San Francisco International Wine Competition given to Steven Noble Ledson, our leader, have rightfully placed our winery at the forefront of the wine industry today, a position we respect and value greatly.
Ledson Winery & Vineyards Moves Forward
We have all experienced almost overwhelming issues during 2020. As the world confronted a deadly pandemic, fires in and around Sonoma County have devastated many of our friends and neighbors. Ledson Winery & Vineyards was one of the fortunate ones in Sonoma Valley to escape crippling fire damage.
We look forward to a return to normal everyday life for all of us.
While Covid-19 keeps all of us and our employees close to home, we look forward to having our current and future friends return to enjoy our award-winning wines, Ledson Castle, and the vineyards that celebrate the long history of our family and the region.
