Located in Kenwood, California, Landmark Vineyards is a wedding venue with ties to Damaris Deere Ford, the great-great-grandaughter of John Deere. Damaris was inspired by views of the Mayacamas Mountains and moved the vineyard to its present site in Sonoma Valley in 1989. In 1991, she turned the vineyard's focus to Chardonnay, producing its first flagship wine, the Overlook Chardonnay. The year 1993 saw the hiring of Helen Turley, a world-renowned enologist. Her addition to the business created what is now Landmark Vineyard's signature style. That is whole cluster grapes, fermentation by native yeast strains, and aging in French oak. Grand Detour, Landmark Vineyard's inaugural vintage of pinot noir, was named in honor of John Deere's blacksmithing site. In 2014, Overlook Pinot Noir joined the market, an achievement for well-known and respected Greg Stach. Expanding the vineyard's reach, Hop Kiln Estate was acquired in 2016, and its first Hop Kiln Estate Reserve Pinot Noir was released in 2018.

Outstanding Conference Dinner
We had a conference near by and worked with Landmark Vineyard Event staff for hosting an indoor sit-down dinner for 45 in November. The venue was perfect and Olivia and her group did an outstanding job with the venue set up as well as an excellent job on leading a wine tasting. Couldn't have been happier about the venue, the wine and the effort from the Landmark Vineyard Event staff. Without a doubt I would use this venue again.Sent on 11/23/2020

All that you have dreamed of in a wine country event!
I reached out to other wineries to find a place for my dream 50th Birthday party but Landmark had the most professional staff, the most personalized service, the best prices, and great wine. My guests are still raving about our event a year and a half later and everyone commented on how gorgeous the location was and how perfectly it all flowed. The grounds are large enough for people to spread out and the winery is lit up at night with little Christmas lights so it is truly magical (the photos don't do it justice). The staff at Landmark took extra special care with every detail and were extremely patient with my many questions. They referred great vendors and caterers and I felt I had very good direction on how the whole thing should come together. The only vendor that didn't work out was not one that was recommended by Landmark, so I wouldn't suggest going solo on that. They have perfected this and it shows! If you want a smooth and gorgeous event, with people who care and who will refer others who care, then don't look any further than this stunning venue.Sent on 11/23/2020

We had our wedding at Landmark Winery. It was the perfect venue for our wedding. We especially liked that fact that we had the whole property for our wedding along with the cottage and suite on the property. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Donna and the rest of the team at Landmark.Sent on 08/28/2018

My name is Olivia and I am super excited to help you plan your special event, whether it be a wedding or a birthday party!
I have been working at Landmark Vineyards for 5 years now and the past 2 years, I have been in charge of all events Landmark hosts. It is truly a dream job and I love watching ideas unfold into beautiful vows, ceremonies, and memories that you will share with friends and loved ones and forever cherish. Growing up in Southern California I was never introduced to what truly is a romantic destination until I began going to school here and discovering my love for this very special place. Sonoma is a unique place where you feel the love actually in the air, being at Landmark for 5 years I have seen the devastation that fires and power outages have brought but this has not stopped the love of the couples or the love for this county.
I can not wait to help you start planning your special event!
