Hi Terry,

Thank you so much for a wonderful experience at Ledson on Monday. We felt like royalty and very much enjoyed our time with you - whatever did we do to deserve such treatment? We visited another winery later that day and it tasted awful compared to the wines at Ledson! Your knowledge of wines and ability to share it is something to be proud of - no wonder you get to do those cruises!
We look forward to our next visit to Ledson and hopefully another session with you.

Thanks again!

I just wanted to thank you again for the great time you offered to Jennifer and I, along with our friends on our recent visit to Ledson in July. That was simply the best experience that we have had at Ledson since becoming members in 1999. Please pass along our thoughts to Steve as well.

We do miss California after having relocated to Alaska just two years ago. However, any chance we get to visit Sonoma, you all are always on our list. I am eager to get those futures we ordered!

Again, thanks so much Randy. Your service was excellent and it's obvious that you truly believe in and support Ledson wineries and it's mission.

I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our tasting at Ledson with Terry on Saturday (May 15). We had such a great time. Terry was awesome! Her knowledge of the Ledson wines was very impressive, and of course, the Ledson wines are pretty awesome also! We came down to pick up our shipment and came home with that and a lot more!

We have been visiting the Napa Valley for over 10 years and I have to say that Ledson goes above and beyond for their members! We will probably be back in the fall for our futures...definitely looking forward to that!

Thank you for the wonderful hospitality!

I'm writing to thank you for the wonderful time we had with our friends last Sunday, May 30th at your winery. In March, Roger Shields and I visited Ledson for the first time. We were impressed with the wines as well as the tasting room staff (Matthew & Thaddeus), so we didn't hesitate to join the wine club. We also inquired about a private tasting for a group of 20 friends that would be visiting over Memorial Day weekend. We found out about the BBQ and booked the tasting.

When we arrived last Sunday, we were delighted at the bar that was set up for us in a corner of the grounds right next to the vines. Randy Santos spent the next few hours guiding us through an impressive selection of your wines, from Sauvignon Blanc right through to the Orange Muscat. It was particularly thrilling to taste a Merlot while standing right next to the vine that produced it! The quality of the wine was exceeded only by the hospitality shown to us by Randy and the rest of your staff that day. The BBQ was also delicious. We met Mark Sandoval and are looking forward to tasting more of his great food at future winemaker dinners.

Our friends went home (to NY, LA, Hawaii, Georgia, Michigan and Texas) with some great memories and lots of Ledson wine to add to their collections. Most of them also joined the wine club and are enthusiastically recommending a visit to anyone coming to Sonoma Co. Thank you to everyone, especially Randy, for an unforgettable day.

On our recent vacation to northern California, my wife, Dixie, and I met you and Amy in Santa Rosa at Gail's hamburger grill. We want to thank you for making the special arrangements for us to visit the Ledson Winery (or as we now say the Castle) that afternoon. It is a beautiful facility. Randy was a superb host and the afternoon was the highlight of our California trip. We thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to sample many of the fine wines you produce (including barrel samples of future releases). It enabled us to zero in on some special ones that we really liked, ones that we are now adding to our cellar.

We also enjoyed our visit that evening to the Ledson Hotel and restaurant on the square. The rooms are beautifully furnished and we look forward to a future stay there when we next return to the area. (Dixie talks about it all the time.) Though we weren't able to have dinner at the restaurant, we certainly enjoyed the wine and dessert that were graciously provided.

This past week, we received a case of the 2001 Merlot - Sonoma Valley Reserve. Though just recently bottled, we couldn't resist giving one a try with friends at dinner this past Saturday evening. After a bit of time to open up, the wine was wonderful...just absolutely superb. It will only get better with a little aging. And of course, we delighted in telling our story of the chance encounter with you and Amy at the hamburger grill in Santa Rosa. (As a result, I believe you will see some additional customers.)

Thanks again for your friendliness and for the hospitality extended to us by you and your staff. We hope to see you again on a future visit. In the meantime, we will be enjoying those good Ledson wines that we discovered.

Best regards,
Tom & Dixie Nelson
