About J Vineyards & Winery

A legacy of making exceptional sparkling and varietal wines in Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley since 1986.

Read More

As a gutsy 25-year old, Judy Jordan set out on a quest to create her vision of the perfect sparkling wine. Her journey took her to Sonoma County's Russian River Valley where she and her team masterfully crafted an elegant sparkling wine collection that was met with a passionately loyal following.
As a trained geologist, Judy was inspired by Mother Nature's bounty of microclimates laced throughout J's Russian River Valley estate vineyards. When people told her it was "impossible" for a sparkling wine house to make great varietal wine, it further fueled her competitive nature to bring the ultimate wine experience to life. Let's just say, this is one woman who knows how to live boldly and make her mark.

With a commitment to innovation and a passion for wine, J continues to produce sparkling wines as well as highly lauded varietal Pinot Noirs, Chardonnays, Pinot Gris, and other varietal wines led by Winemaker Nicole Hitchcock. Experience it all through J's food and wine pairing indulgence - the Bubble Room and Legacy Lounge, or with an al fresco tasting on their Terrace.

Was totally misled by J as to their ability to provide what was promised when I booked our tour/tasting. Instead of the nice tour and tasting that was promised, we got no tour and a excellent view of the port-o-potties during our tasting.

J is a larger, lively winery. Unfortunately, they have not adapted their hospitality approach to a busier business. May others have been able to provide the feeling of an intimate and welcoming approach to visitors, but this property fell far short. Our server was rushed and used what felt like boilerplate descriptions of the wines. She forgot about our presence a number of times.

It was wonderful! The only thing is that we had brought a guest there and the front of the building was under construction so it looked a little messy. However, the room where we had our tasting was great and I know you are just trying to make it better for the future.

Wonderful experience for my Grandmother's 90th birthday. Accommodating to our need to be downstairs. Sarah was an amazing hostess. Her knowledge and attitude made it a great afternoon. I do wish we were informed ahead of time about the construction and portapotty situation. We were unable to use a restroom when we left as they were filled to the rim, literally.

I liked that the tour at champage along the tour at various steps of the wine making process. I did not like the choice of wines/sparking wine. If I am paying this much, I expect to try some of the unique wines and not just the cheaper ones found in grocery stores. CHEAP on their part. I will not be buying or revisiting.

The tasting was okay. We were brought to the tasting room and the first person poured us some wine and she walked away, a few minutes later another lady poured us some more wine and walked away. They let us sit there a long time while pouring wine for other guests. We never got a tour as stated on their website and seemed to just be 'fitting us in' among the other people there. Disappointed!

I am in the industry and have been a supplier rep for over 20 years. I have obviously seen and visited many wineries and both my wife and I truly enjoyed our visit to J. We have been drinking the sparkling for years but it was nice to taste through all of the other things you do. We bought some wines and the dessert wine is off the chart. Excited about opening that over the holidays.
