Founded in 1970 by wine enthusiasts from the San Francisco Bay area who refurbished the former Pagani Brothers Winery, originally established in 1906. Kenwood Vineyards sits on a 22-acre estate in Sonoma Valley and is housed in the original winery building. The winery produces multiple varietal wines including Pinot Noir. Grape sources include estate vineyards and other vineyards in Sonoma County. The value-priced Pinot Noirs are sourced from the Russian River Valley and are released under the Reserve and Sonoma County labels. Nothing extraordinary, but decent daily drinkers. Total production is 500,000 cases annually.
A tasting room is open daily on California Highway 12 in Kenwood. The wines are sold online and through retail distribution.
