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.

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

We have attended dinners, Holiday parties, etc. We treated our best friends to a Signature Tasting. They are very experienced wine enthusiasts and wine-tasting veterans. They totally loved our stop at J.

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???)

The Bubble Room experience was perfect. Over 3 hours of relaxing, enjoying wonderful beautiful food and lovely wines with my husband. We splurged for the caviar course which made our stay a little longer, but the service was excellent, paced perfectly and we felt pampered and happy when we left. Don’t remember the last time we sat and talked in such a delightful setting. Life is short. Splurge!

The wine paring and food were over shadowed by the terrible ambiance. Because J allows large groups of people both in the Bubble room and at the tasting bar, the experience gets overwhelmed by loud and obnoxious individuals. When I pay over $100 per person for an experience, I expect to be able to hear my table mates, the hosts and not feel like I'm in a bar.

We all enjoyed The Bubble Room at J - the food was amazing - we are all still talking about it days later, the service was spot on - it made her Bachelorette weekend super special. Highly recommend!

I have enjoyed the Bubble Room pairing (by far the best experience) and this past Monday the Legacy Tasting with a couple of friends. I had to change my scheduled appointment, and as always the J.
