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.

This was my second time doing the tasting lunch and wine pairing. My first experience was outstanding so I chose to return. While I find the staff to be incredibly friendly, and the wine to be exceptional, my experience of the food this trip was fairly mediocre. It seem to take quite a long time to get anything out of the kitchen so we were sort of begging for bread.

Wonderful Experience! We had the wine and cheese pairing and it was excellent. The cheeses were as good as the wine. We had other cheese pairings at wineries and none could compare to this one. We did purchase a bottle of the Pinot Noir and we were very selective on the trip as our alcohol allowance is 2 bottles per person. J made the cut for the final 4! Our two servers were very accommodating.

Overall it was a good experience. I live in wine country and have done several of these elevated tastings. The ambiance was nice and the service good. However the 2 things that stood out were the disorganization of the computer system, not the first time and the food just wasn't that good. As a foodie I would say there are other pairings which are superior. For a tourist experience it was fine.

This was the best of the tastings we experienced in wine country. The wines were excellent and the food pairings were extensive and perfect accents to the wine...or did the wine accent the food? Either way the tasting was delicious.

We were greeted as we were still waiting for other to arrive for our Legacy tasting. They gave us some sparkling wine to try as we waited. Our table was already set up for us and everyone that we talked to was very nice. This was our second tasting for half of our group. The staff had plenty of knowledge for the wines and sparkling that we were tasting. We will be back.

I have been to a few vineyards and drunk many glasses of wine and champagne.

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.
