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.

Went with friends to the Legacy Room. Great flights for Pinot Noir and Sparkling wines. Izzy, Liz and Sam took wonderful care of us. I learned some new information about some of their vineyards that are my favorites. This is a must do for people visiting the area and also for those who live here. The cheese tray and accompaniments was exceptional, Chef Carl paired them well.

I have been a club member for years, but the past two visits have been disappointing. I stood around for 10 minutes before anyone asked if they could help us or if we had a reservation and the tasting room was EMPTY and there were only 4 parties inside the lounge. One of the lounge servers walked past my party 3 times and never said a word. The wine was good and cheese selection was amazing.

J Vineyards offers the perfect midafternoon place to stop for some bubbly and cheese pairing. The foods are the perfect snack to hold you over until dinner somewhere in downtown healdsburg. The ambiance in the legacy and bubbly rooms is perfect for an event, spending time with parents and in laws and maybe even for business. The hospitality and wine club are both solid. So happy to have found them

I have been a club J member for a number of years and in all the visits I have made to vineyards, i have never been met by such a rude and offensive customer service person. The friends we were with are also J Club members and their experience was the same. He was rude, spoke in a condescending voice and really didn’t care about us. In the past I have had a very good relationship with the J staff

The service from April was nothing short of amazing and she really went above and beyond to make our afternoon one of the most special we've had in our long lives. Highly recommend to all seeking an unforgettable day.

I brought my family to J for the casual experience that I knew they would love. The wines were all solid - something you can expect from J - and the hospitality was out of this world. If you get the chance to experience J lead by Debbie, you are in for a treat. Debbie was a wealth of knowledge and we felt like we were drinking with a friend.

This is a very modern, sleek, clean place. We were greeted warmly, by the friendly hostess, just outside the winery and she us escorted to our table for our wine tasting. Our wine connoisseur was just as friendly and inviting as our greeter. She was very personable and knowledgeable about the wines we were tasting. The views of the surrounding vineyards made J winery that much more beautiful.

We love J, and have been members for a bit now. The wine is great and I was excited to treat my Mom to the Bubbles Room tasting as part of her retirement trip. Unfortunately, the food pairing, and the reason for the higher price tag left a lot to be desired. The prior tastings we’ve had at J were fun and light hearted, this experience was much too ridged and the food was unnecessarily pretentious

Complimentary guests as Vintner's Inn package. One of us purchased items and server suggested he was given a comp tasting when the pass was for complimentary tastings! An unwelcoming attitude. Former "J" before Gallo purchased was great. Go to Breathless for a far better experience. This isn't the approachable, friendly Sonoma we know! (Really? "J" comps only one tasting with a $100 purchase???)
