KENWOOD, CA (August 21, 2019) – There’s no better time to visit wine country than during harvest to experience the convivial spirit surrounding the season. Join Ledson Winery & Vineyards at the Ledson Castle in Kenwood for a great evening of sipping and socializing as they celebrate the 2019 harvest and toast all the people behind it. On Saturday, September 28, 2019 from 6:30-9:30pm, enjoy award-winning wines and stroll through the beautiful oak-studded grounds surrounded by the gorgeous colors of fall abundant in the vineyard at the Harvest Celebration.
Guests will be among the first to taste incredible new released wines and take advantage of the special preferred pricing that will be offered during this evening.
