Located in the heart of the Sonoma Valley, Kenwood Vineyards is dedicated to producing premium wines truly representative of Sonoma County’s world-class vineyards. Kenwood Vineyards was established in 1970 in the former Pagani Brothers Winery, a historic cellar dating back to 1906. Thoroughly refurbished and modernized, the facility now boasts more than 125 stainless steel fermenting tanks and large oak uprights, and 20,000 small French and American oak barrels, all devoted to Kenwood Vineyards’ “small lot” style of winemaking. In addition to the 22-acre vineyard surrounding the winery, Kenwood Vineyards sources grapes from dozens of vineyards – many farmed sustainably, using natural soil amendments and pest controls whenever possible rather than chemicals - in Sonoma County’s best appellations, including Russian River Valley, Alexander Valley, Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma Valley and Sonoma Mountain. Each lot from each vineyard is kept separate throughout the winemaking process, enabling the winemaker to bring it to its fullest potential. This “small lot” or “cuvee” style of winemaking also enables the winemaker to draw on an exceptionally broad “palette” to assemble wines that showcase classic character, subtle complexity and superb balance. As a result, every Kenwood Vineyards wine – whether Table Wine Series, Sonoma Series, Reserve, Jack London Vineyard or Artist Series – is consistent in quality and consistently delicious. Read less

Predictably crisp and fresh, Kenwood's Sauvignon Blanc doesn't disappoint, but doesn't inspire either. Starts with hints of peach and melon and lingers with a hint of oak and grass. A little steely and metallic at the end. A low-commitment wine that is nice on a hot summer day.

This white wine has a good nose. Lots of fruit, melon, mango. Vegetal, herbal, dill, green pea. A bit of spicy notes. A dry wine, with medium body and medium acidity. Light oak. Very enjoyable!

Excellent QPR. Pale gold in color, with mixed citrus and herbs in the aromas and then grapefruit and apple on the palate with a funny note of grilled onions in the finish (perhaps from the oak ageing)? We went with this over a chardonnay with Maryland crab cakes and fennel salad and it worked really well. Would buy more.

90 points - Wine SpectatorTight and concentrated. Slowly unfolds to reveal a medley of rich grass, lemon-lime, fig and floral character, with a citrus tanginess lingering on the finish
