The company also operates a large collection of distinctive, complementary lodging accommodations such as Grapeleaf Inn and Calderwood Inn, located in Healdsburg.
Since 1998 Ken and Diane Wilson have created a portfolio of largely estate- and single-vineyard-focused wines, fully integrated from ground to glass. Beginning with one planted Dry Creek Valley vineyard and the Wilson Winery, today the portfolio has vineyards, production facilities, tasting rooms and a tasteful selection of overnight guest accommodations.
