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.

The service manager in the bubble room was very snooty as well as the ambience. The service was very slow and the Mother’s Day pairing was overly priced compared to how wonderful the “for the love of chocolate” experience was. Very unimpressed.. even canceled my membership.

I have been to a few vineyards and drunk many glasses of wine and champagne. I learned more in the few hours with our tour guide at J's than I have in all my years of drinking wine and visiting vineyards. I truly enjoyed the experience, felt taken care of, and recommended it to all of my friends and family!

We loved the varietal wine tasting and cheese pairing. Our only problem was that we had to wait, unattended, for over 15mins to be seated in spite of having a reservation. It seemed the hostess was busy doing other things. We also put in the note that my husband and I were celebrating our first anniversary yet no mention of that was made. I think J missed an opp to build loyalty here.

Experience started out very well. Ended with worst service I have ever had from a restaurant of this caliber. Presentations of food and quality were very good - main pork dish was acceptable. Server Scott and Katie were generally good. Black haired server needs her head examined. How anyone of that surliness has a job in hospitality is beyond me. If I was her manager she wouldn’t last a day.

I was disappointed that our tasting was at the bar and we had to stand the entire time. ( this was not made clear when I made the reservation) It was very crowded and not much room for our group, our tasting was short and get right down to business like not much talk about the wine and what we were experiencing. I had high hopes for this winery but sadly I was a little disappointed.

I booked this experience to celebrate the retirement of a long-term (24 years) employee. The staff was incredibly welcoming from the first moment that the bus pulled up to our departure. We were all given a glass of champagne as we walked in, setting the tone of the event. The food was absolutely outstanding, with spot-on wine pairings. Overall, it was a great send-off for a beloved coworker!

Great Place! We enjoyed our tasting very much! They were busy on an early Saturday afternoon so we felt a little lost in the crowd at first but once we made our way upstairs it was a perfect experience. Wines were very good and the cheese pairing was so tasty and decadent! We would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a lovely wine country experience.

They have a diverse array of wines for every taste and the service is always outstanding.

I am sorry to say that J vineyards was the only wine visit that left us disappointed on our trip of 14 wineries. There was no one to greet us when we arrived, we were told they did not have our J Legacy reservation but then found our reservation. 3 different wine associates came to our table but not one of them gave any attentive service. wines were ok but Only winery on trip we did not purchase

The bubbles will always be a complete fan favorite. We brought friends in with us to experience the tasting room, and hoped to have a great experience. Unfortunately from the very delayed & unwelcome greeting to the server that didn’t seem like he wanted us there it was not our best experience. This is our second time coming and the same experience had both times.

I really appreciated his in-depth knowledge that he shared willingly with the group. He was very hospitable and friendly. Highly recommend this tour specifically with Jim. Also, we tried fantastic wines (the Pinot Noir) was my favorite! (Only a few were sparkling.)

The ambiance = terrific. The Food = Did not meet or exceed our expectations at the price point. Random ingredients were added which brought nothing to the dish. A couple of the dishes were good, but not the impressive food/wine pairing I was hoping to share with my guests. I was scheduled to bring a group of 6 next week, but have decided to take them elsewhere.
