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.

I am a club member (Experience) we usually have wonderful experience, but I cannot say the same for the last visit. We were greeted by a host who is not the usual lady (not sure if I remember her name, though she is always there and as accommodating as she can be) gave us uptight feelings after she saw us with 3 dogs. We have brought our dogs several times in the past with absolutely no issues.

The staff here was amazing and truly new what they were talking about in regards to the wines and knowledge of the area. Choosing the signature tasting you would assume you would not get the same lavish experience as some of the other pairing offers like the bubble room, but it is incorrect. The J staff makes everyone feel great and will help you determine your tasting profile. Overall great!

We had an enjoyable time and the wine/ hospitality was very good, but I was disappointed with the ambiance and food, especially for the price. The food seemed lukewarm/ wilted for most of the courses and our table did not enjoy the bread. The presentation was nice. The ambiance was fine, but a bit more dated than I expected and the music playing was very bland. I'd suggest a modern playlist.

Sat inside in the bubble lounge, what used to be their location for the food pairing tasting. 5 tastes included and we ordered the cheese pairing. Cheese plate comes with 1 sheep, 1 goat, and 3 cow cheeses. We are not goat fans so asked for them to substitute one of the other cheeses. Were told no can do. Really? They gave us the accoutrements that go with the goat cheese, but no cheese. Odd.

Lovely place to visit- our wine guide was Sam and he was awesome. Very knowledgeable and personable. The wines were good but they mostly specialize in sparkling wines-just not my cup of tea for every day wine drinking. We ended up buying their pinot noir and it was delicious. The outside is beautiful and the tasting room is super modern and clean.

You are basically seated in a restaurant being served by a waiter . We are at a table for 4 and our waiter , who was nice , came by and explained all the wines we would taste . He the served all the wines at one time and would stop by to see how we were doing . You get a bill like a restaurant ($200) and are expected to tip your waiter . This has lost all feeling of a fun wine tasting.
