Jordan Vineyard & Winery is a family-owned California winery located in Alexander Valley AVA in Sonoma County. Jordan produces Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Russian River Valley Chardonnay.[1]

History[edit]

Jordan Vineyard & Winery was founded in 1972 by Tom and Sally Jordan, who first purchased land in 1972 with the dream of planting a vineyard. The Jordan chateau, which overlooks 1,400 acres of hills and vineyards with three quarters of the land dedicated to natural habitat, was designed by the architecture firm Backen, Arrigoni & Ross and was completed in 1976 just before the first vintage of Jordan was harvested.[2]

Jordan's winemaker Rob Davis has worked at Jordan his entire career. Davis was hired and mentored by winemaker André Tchelistcheff, who served as consulting enologist for Jordan.[3]

Today, the winery is owned and operated by Tom and Sally Jordan's son, John.[4][5][6][7][8] John Jordan's older sister Judy Jordan owns J Vineyards.

In September 2013, the 1,200-acre Jordan Estate became open to the public to explore for the first time in its history through an Estate Tour & Tasting experience. [9]
