Wine Country in the Wild
Located 20 minutes southeast of Santa Rosa in Southern Sonoma County, the picturesque town of Kenwood is situated at the foot of the Sugarloaf Mountains. Kenwood draws visitors to its enticing blend of wine country and natural wilderness. The town is decidedly rural, yet offers luxury lodging and premium wineries.
Kenwood is home to a handful of restaurants, shops, tasting rooms, and a historic train depot. The town is just minutes away from Sugarloaf Ridge State Park and Hood Mountain Regional Park, both of which are renowned for their rugged beauty and stunning hiking and biking trails. On clear day, hikers who reach the top of Bald Mountain in Sugarloaf Ridge State park wonder at the sweeping views of the Sonoma Valley all the way to San Francisco.
Stay in lavish surroundings at Kenwood Inn and Spa, a secluded Mediterranean-style villa with lovely vineyard views. Taste award-winning wines at Chateau St. Jean while taking in the beauty of the property’s lush gardens and romantic 1920’s architecture. Stop by St. Francis Winery to indulge in acclaimed food and wine pairings in a mission-style tasting room. Then take some time to explore Ledson Winery, an ornate French Normandy style castle that specializes in small-production estate wines.
