About J Vineyards & Winery

A legacy of making exceptional sparkling and varietal wines in Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley since 1986. Over the next couple of months, we will be making updates to our Visitor Center to provide an enhanced experience for you.

Over the next couple of months, we will be making updates to our Visitor Center to provide an enhanced experience for you. That being said, we may occasionally encounter moments when some tastings will need to be moved to other venues during construction. We will do our best to keep you updated and we thank you for your patience during this time. If you have any questions about an upcoming visit, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Thank you!

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.

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.

A group of 10 should not have to stand in the lobby around a small table for a tasting (maybe I am spoiled from other places). Our server was not engaging or that friendly...he poured and then walked away. Other than that, it is a nice place and I bought a couple of great Pinot Gris and bubbles (a magnum). I would recommend you to a couple of people but not a group.
