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.

Very friendly and approachable staff. Despite being busy and bigger than I expected, we were made to feel special and not "one of a crowd". Our tour lead - Jim - was wonderful. And - of course - we loved the wine.

J Vineyards is my absolute FAVORITE vineyard in all of Sonoma and Napa! The ambience and decor is hip and beautiful. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and courteous (although one small downside, they push the wine club very hard before you've even had your first sip! I would recommend waiting until we are two or three tastings in :-) I LOVE sparkling wine and J has the best by far.

It had been quite a few years since I visited J Vineyards & I promise not to wait so long again. Most people I know really love J bubbly. I bought a magnum of the Vintage Brut for my Birthday Dinner-White Party that evening. I tried to drink more than my guests because it's that good. J Bubbles make all events more decadent.

3rd visit over 5 years. Disappointed with overall experience. Previous room had a much more intimate atmosphere, allowed for much more interaction with host, We found the new tasting room to be very noisy and sterile. Our host went through the virtues of the champagne selections at a rapid fire pace, Show up and throw up. Not a relaxing, interactive, enjoyable experience. Gallo influence obvious

Driving in I was a bit taken back due to the starkness of the grounds: big parking lot which I felt detracted from the building and the surrounding experimentation vineyard/function area to the right Once inside the interior reflects the LABEL: clean, a glamorous in its simplicity. Touring and actually seeing the entire process was, in my opinion, secondary to our guide who was exceptional in all

Beautiful grounds and setting. We had a group with different preferences in wine, some wanted to do the full sparkling wine tasting and others the mixed (with white and red varietals offered). They would not let us do this, however, when we arrived which was a bit disappointing, but we did enjoy our host and the wines we tasted.

I really liked J Vineyards because it gave me the experience I was looking for. I had only gone wine tasting once before and while it was nice, we mostly stood at tables and drank or bought a glass and sat outside. I really wanted a tour to feel like we were walking through a vineyard; therefore, the walking tour was perfect! We even got to see different aspects on how to make wine!

We are members, as we are at 10 other Sonoma/Napa wineries. Only time we had to pay for tasting. We walked in before and chatted with Izzy at counter. This time in lounge he poured 4 glasses, walked away, checked back now and then. Not his fault! Process is crazy. Why you would put members in a room to be ignored. We will be resigning our membership this week!

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.

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.
