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 Bubble Room at J is an experience not to be missed! My two sisters and my brother-in-law attended with us. One of my sisters has a dairy and egg allergy. She was very impressed with how the chef adjusted for her allergies. Each course was artfully display and paired well with the wine. Our experience was the highlight of our trip to the Northern CA coast!

We are big J Pinot fans. We visited years ago when the Bubble Room was the premier tasting room, but not the paired dining. We totally enjoyed it and swore we would return. This trip was with two other couples, one had never been to wine country and the other had not visited Healdsburg, so we were the trip coordinators. We did the 3PM wine and dinner. It was incredible!!!! Everything!!

The Bubble Room is a terrific spot. Large groups can spoil some of the ambiance. Too much loud talk. The food is gorgeous. Inventive. Paired well w wines. The service while friendly falls short of what one would like The wine server knows only what to say about the wine being served. The food service is okay but not graceful, in the way one would hope, given the cost and value of the food.

J Vineyards and Winery was amazing! Especially the cheeseboard. The wine itself was quite fantastic but I had an epiphany about life from the buffalo milk cheese and the pinot pairing. I would 100% recommend this to my friends and family. A bit pricey but more than worth it.

Stunning property with a gorgeous outside area for both lounging and dining. Enjoyed the wine and cheese pairing under the shade of the umbrella. The bubbles are amazing here but their Chardonnay and Pinot are also stars. I was surprised at how many non bubble they have that are mostly rated 90+ points. THE BEST staff member there who will always know you and treat you above and beyond is April.

The food was fantastic, and the staff went above and beyond! The only reason we gave four stars overall is that we felt that the wine pairings weren't on point for our tastes. Even considering that, we were gratified to hear that the menu changes with what's seasonally available (~every six weeks) and would definitely consider returning for another delicious meal!

The Bubble Room was a superb experience. Five delicious courses, plus an amuse-bouche and petits fours, together with five matched pours, and a welcoming coupe of champagne - kind of a steal at $125 - a meal of this caliber without wine would cost $125. Service was very professional, and I thought the servers' demeanor was spot on. While the room is very elegant, outside might have been even nicer
