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, or with an al fresco tasting on their Terrace.

I've been a J member for 15 years this coming February. I am pleased thus far with the Gallo transition, but am worried when I see the smaller wine glasses used to serve luxurious Pinot Noir. I have learned to ask for the burgundy glasses and this is ok for now, but I'm hopeful to maintain membership and not see too many more cost cuts in the future. We pay a lot to enjoy the J experience.

I was very disappointed with my visit this time. I usually love and enjoy doing my pickup and legacy tasting. No one was at the desk, no one asked if we needed help and I had to go up to the tasting bar to ask for help. When we sat down the server, who I do not even remember his name, was so fast and I could not even catch half of what he said. We never saw him again. Not sure what was going.

From start to finish our experience at J Vineyard was absolutely phenomenal. We were greeted by the hostess with a glass of wine and a smile. When we got to our table we were immediately asked if there were any allergies or food aversions. Both my husband and I greatly appreciated the substitutions that were made on behalf of our allergies, they did not alter or take away from the amazing dishes.

This was our 3rd time visiting J for the Bubble Room experience and we could tell the difference now that it is not owned by the founder anymore. The Bubble Room is in a larger space, there were more people, but the quality of the pairing meal was diminished while the price skyrocketed. I hope it was just the November 2018 menu, but we were not impressed by the new head chef's menu and the price.

Pretty vineyard. Very commercial and busy. Not warm or intimate. Our host was busy, distracted and disinterested. She only explained the wines she was pouring after we asked her to do so. Then she became rude and confrontational. I don’t think this would be her first complaint or she would find this surprising at all.

WAY too crowded for a place that was supposedly reservations only. We were not greeted, had to search for someone to check in, and then waited a while only to be pointed toward a table that was not clean. We were poured HOT sparkling wine while a mumbling waiter feebly explained the varietals. The other waiter actually rolled his eyes and walked away when I asked a question about the menu.

It was absolutely fabulous. We took my cousin from Tennessee and her 21 year old Grandson...it was terrific. The 21 year old was not really sophisticated enough to get the wine and the pairings (he loved it all but maybe too much). The food was perfect, the wine pairings perfect, the service exceptional and the descriptions of food, wine and experience great.
