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.

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.

This is my fourth time experiencing the J Bubble Room and we always love it! The experience is very special and the wine and food are perfect. We have had birthdays, girls weekend and groups of friends and all have loved it. When the staff greets you with a beautiful glass of champagne you know you’re going to be in for a special treat and so far it always has been.

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

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.

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

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.
