a view of beautiful Sonoma Valley from Kenwood in Sonoma County

Nestled at the foot of Sugarloaf Ridge in California’s pastoral Sonoma Valley, the tiny hamlet of Kenwood counts a dozen wineries, as well as vineyards and tasting rooms as neighbors. Also close by are two Sonoma County and two California State Parks. Among nearby wineries are Chateau St. Jean and Kunde Estate Winery, whose vineyards were originally planted in 1879.

Convenient to the historic town of Sonoma, and to the larger community of Santa Rosa, the tiny community was laid out in that same year as residential and business lots in anticipation of the railroad, which would arrive the following year. Today, the small village is home to just over 1,000 residents, while an intimate European-style inn and spa is popular with celebrities, and its namesake restaurant has become a favorite of vintners, winemakers and artists.
