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

Bright character of grass and lemon-lime balances subtle tones of melon and peach in this clean and firm California white, with the flavors fading pleasantly on the moderate finish. Nice for the price. Drink now.

Does a brilliant job of stimulating the palate and preparing it for spicy fare. The flavors of this sleek, ultra-clean wine are citrus, melons, fresh herbs and spices.

Here's a tasty California white, starting off with hints of passion fruit and peach, then following through with pretty lemon-lime and herb flavors. It's fresh and light on the palate, with a long, flavorful finish. Good price and lots to go around. Drink now.

Quite tasty, with ripe, bright grapefruit, passion fruit, lemon and herb flavors. It's light and refreshing; long and clean on the finish. A terrific quaffer.

A crisply sweet medley of melon, sweet pea, grapefruit, fig and herb notes, all coming together harmoniously into an elegant, multi-tiered white wine that's drinkable now. The price is right.

Pale, but not lacking in aroma and flavor. Grapefruit and gooseberry on the nose and palate, but with soft manner. Not sharp in the mouth and finishes decently. A varietally correct crowd-pleaser.

This wine is dominated by crisp grapefruit tones with a touch of spice and grass; the finish is medium and fairly simple, but pleasing.
