Owner description: Tucked into the hills of Sonoma County's Alexander Valley, Jordan Vineyard & Winery welcomes guests by appointment for three distinctive tours and tastings. From a tasting in our private library to a tour through our iconic chateau or an epicurean excursion across the breathtaking estate, there is something for everyone to enjoy. All tours include both walking and seated tastings, each featuring seasonal tastes from the Jordan chef paired with vintages of Jordan Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. Jordan's Estate Tour & Tasting also includes driving. Advance reservations are required due to the intimacy of tastings. Inspired by the timeless elegance of French wine and food, Tom and Sally Jordan founded Jordan Vineyard & Winery in 1972. Their vision was to create a wine estate that produced food-friendly Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay to rival the finest in France--and to capture the essence of gracious hospitality. Today their son, John, builds upon their legacy. Library Tasting Mon-Sun: 10 a.m. & 2 p.m. (closed Sundays, December-March) Winery Tour & Library Tasting Mon-Sun: 11 a.m. (closed Sundays, December-March) Estate Tour & Tasting Thurs-Mon: 9:45 a.m. (May-October only)

“A must for Healdsburg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

This was our first visit to Jordan and the area too. Our Host Pete was wonderful and very knowledgeable. The tasting experience was nothing like anything else we experienced that week. We enjoyed small food pairings with a tour of the inside of the tasting room. Make sure you make these reservation. It is a must!

“Unforgettable Wine Tasting Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

This was our first visit to Jordan in many years and it was a fantastic experience. Our host Christopher was charming and very knowledgeable. The tasting experience consists of three separate tasting stations with petite food pairings as well as a tour of the winery and grounds. These tours are by reservation only and well worth it. Jordan was the standout experience in a weeklong wine tasting trip and should not be missed.

“Better than I expected!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Our group of 6 had collectively decided that Jordan was a place that we'd like to visit based on their distribution and the wines that we had previously tasted. The $20 tasting fee seemed reasonable so off we went to Healdsburg. We were absolutely blown away by the Jordan property, tasting room and tasting experience. There is a surprise ending that I won't ruin for you but it is definitely worth the visit!

Dear Sarah:

Thanks so much for visiting us. Our prices have changed as of January 1, 2014, so we want to make sure your fellow TripAdvisors know that the Jordan Library Tasting costs $30 and the Winery Tour & Library Tasting is $40.

Thanks again for sharing your experience and best wishes in the New Year. Hope to see you again soon. Our new Estate Tour & Tasting returns in mid-April. Come back for a visit!

Sincerely,
Lisa Mattson

“Elegance!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

The tasting tour at Jordan was a great experience! The winery looks like a French chateau. Their presentation was so elegant. We first tasted a chardonnay with a food pairing on the terrace overlooking the vineyards. Next, we moved upstairs to the library where we sampled a 2003 Cabernet Sauvingon w/ another pairing. Then we moved into a tasting room with 2 cabs to sample, a 2003, 2005, & 2008 along with a cheese/quince jelly/olive oil (Jordan's own), & bread tasting. They wanted us to see the difference in taste when wine ages. We loved it! And bonus for us...it was during harvest, so we saw the trucks unloading the grapes, pressing them...and who was raking the grapes into the press? John Jordan himself, owner.

“Fantastic!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

We have been big fans of Jordan for a number of years and were excited to get the opportunity to visit the winery. We were not disappointed! We signed up for the Library Tasting and it was terrific...informative and fun in a very carefree setting. It was hands down the highlight of our winery visits!! And....their wine is amazing!!
