Kenwood Vineyards is committed to producing premium wines that reflect Sonoma County's finest vineyards and define the region's grape varieties in their true character and style.  The Kenwood Artist Series is a marriage of wine and art, which has become highly sought after by wine collectors worldwide. The dramatic Jack London label --a replica of the wolf head Jack London used as his book-plate logo -- has created tremendous consumer interest and recognition in the wines.
