When Diane and Ken Wilson first visited Sonoma County, they fell in love with the patchwork of oaks, vineyards and expansive vistas. Diane and Ken are devoted to things they value most—family and friends—and are committed to the stewardship and sustainable farming of the Dry Creek, Alexander and Russian River Valleys. Diane, a native Californian, cherishes her high-energy lifestyle that includes raising children, making wine at the Wilson Artisan Wineries and taking an active role in the community. Ken, born and raised in Ontario, Canada, is robust and passionate about his vineyards and wineries.
It was Ken’s wisdom and vision that created the diversity of vineyard sources over the years. These vineyards provide the premium quality fruit that has brought notable recognition to the Wilson Artisan Wineries.
Ken and Diane own several boutique wineries offering exceptional wines, beautiful scenery and friendly, informative Tasting Room staff.
One of the Wilson’s most recent adventures has been into guest lodging and offering luxury accommodation options to visitors of the Healdsburg area.
The Grape Leaf Inn was the perfect addition to the already prestigious winery portfolio, with its 13 romantic rooms and historic charm enticing travelers from near and far. Built in 1905 and set in peaceful, English country-style gardens, this Queen Anne-style home is located just minutes’ walk from the plaza and all of its surrounding restaurants, shops and tasting rooms.
All of the rooms are individually decorated with antique furnishings and have plush beds with Italian linens, en-suite bathrooms with designer toiletries, free Wi-Fi, TVs and DVD players. A few of the rooms also feature skylights, ceiling murals, fireplaces, stained-glass windows or 4-poster beds.
The Grape Leaf Inn has also been recognized by TripAdvisor as one of the GreenLeaders in the industry by achieving a Silver rating, thus further emphasizing our dedication to renewable sources and reducing our carbon footprint.
