Wilson Family Experience

Wilson Artisan Wineries proudly presents the
Annual Wilson Family Experience

At this time we are currently reviewing the Wilson Family Experience. Please see more information and a sample itinerary for this wonderful experience below.

Come spend some quality family time with the Wilsons and all of Wilson Artisan Wineries. Spend 3 nights and 4 days experiencing what Ken and Diane have done over the last 30 years in Sonoma County. Start with vineyard management and grape growing, when Ken was one of the first growers of hilltop grapes in Sonoma County. Pick grapes at some of our iconic vineyards and then move into winemaking! Diane found out she only had a couple weeks to learn she could make wine. Can you do the same, but with only days to do so?

Diane is a wonderful cook, so we have assembled some of the finest chefs and restaurants in the area to pair the amazing wines she and the other winemakers create. Some of the restaurants are well known and have become destinations in their own right. 

The most recent development in the Wilson Family has been moving into lodging. Your visit includes 3 nights at our sister property, the beautiful and recently re-designed Grape Leaf Inn. Updated in a “modern Victorian” style, the artful Victorian architecture is complemented with custom, comfortable furnishings and a light and airy style. The huge wraparound deck is perfect for a glass of wine or just lounging with fellow “family members.”

The perfect package for lovers of Wilson Artisan Wineries and experiencing wine and food with family.

Come down to Healdsburg, the Wilson’s family home, for a unique experience in the heart of wine country. Celebrate the harvest with us and develop a whole new appreciation for wine, food, and family. This intimate, one-of-a-kind family experience is limited to only 24 participants.
