About
Tucked into the hills of Sonoma County's Alexander Valley, Jordan Vineyard & Winery welcomes guests by appointment for four unique tours and tastings. From perennial gourmet wine tastings with food pairing in our cellar room and walking tours through our iconic chateau, to epicurean excursions across our scenic property and festive holiday celebrations offered seasonally, 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) Holiday Tour & Tasting Mon-Fri: 2 p.m. (select dates in December)

A great Experience
Nov 2021
Had a reservation for the Library Tasting at 10:00. Loved that they honored the MASK and that the tables were distanced apart. Our host explained the history of the building and winery...most interesting.
Because it was raining, we got to walk thru the Fermenting Rooms which held huge vats. The table in the Library was set beautifully with a wonderful cheese, oil and bread tray at each setting. The host did a good job of explaining what we had in front us. The Chardonnay was a bit too light for me, but we liked the 2011 Alexander Valley Cab. The whole experience was very cool.

Truly spectacular!!
Oct 2021 • Friends
Out of all the wine tastings we did in Napa and Healdsburg, Jordan winery was by far our favorite! The library tasting provided a unique and special experience that no other winery offered. In addition, one of our guests was not able to attend the tasting and the manager Maribel Soto and her associate Carrie White, were kind enough to refund us for her tasting and not charge for a service we didn't receive. I highly recommend for anyone and everyone to visit this beautiful winery and experience the magic of Jordan Winery!!

A memorable experience!
Oct 2021 • Couples
Best part of our trip to Sonoma!! Informative small group tour of the farm (roses, fresh fruits and vegetables, feeding the goats fresh carrots). You are even encouraged to pick what is ripe and enjoy delicious fresh produce. If harvest had not just occurred, we would also have seen grapes on the vines. We toured the wine tanks and barrel rooms. We stopped at different points and had a food and wine pairing. Michael was very informative and knowledgeable. The van we rode in was clean and appropriate COVID protocols were used whenever we were indoors and not eating or drinking. The grounds are gorgeous. Everything is well-designed for a lovely visit and the wines and food are very good. The experience takes 3 1/2 hours total and culminates in a lunchtime food and wine pairing in a room with 360 degree views. Well worth the price, especially when you compare the cost of other tastings lasting half the time! or less in a tasting room.

Jumping For Jordan (Winery)
Aug 2021 • Friends
We recently went to Jordan Winery in Sonoma Valley. Jordan is our favorite Cabernet so it was our #1 winery that we wanted to visit for my wife’s birthday. And the winery experience did not disappoint!

We paid for the hilltop tasting. When we arrived, we were met by HANNAH, who needless to say quickly set the stage with her upbeat demeanor, excellent knowledge, quick wit and a smile as wide as the valley. She started us off on our walk by explaining about the different grapes, the land their grapes are cultivated on, the processes they use, the history of the winery, so that by the time we arrived at a hilltop picnic spot, we felt really immersed in the winery.

The venue for the tasting was wonderful: a hilltop with expansive views of the valley below. What surprised us was the charcuterie that awaited us as well! We thoroughly enjoyed having HANNAH walk us through the wine/olive/meat/cheese pairings. An absolutely wonderful experience that we most certainly will repeat when we visit next time!

Oh and the wines? Did I not say they are our favorite Cabernets? Each we had was wonderful. And my wife loves their Chardonnay too so we ended up buying several bottles of each.

We highly recommend Jordan Winery if you’re looking for a great way to spend the afternoon!

Great wine tasting with Hannah
Jul 2021 • Friends
Great experience! Super knowledgeable hostess, Hanna was her name (I think!) really seems passionate about the wine and the Family. The Chateau is an impressive structure … I wish the experience involved seeing more of the estate, but what we came for was impeccable. The 2010 Cab was the highlight IMO.

Best Winery Experience of our Visit
Jun 2021 • Couples
Wow! What a great way to spend a half day! We arrived at the beautiful French-style Jordan chateau promptly at 9:45. Sparkling wine with pastries and fruit were available to the group of 12. After introductions we peeked behind the winery doors to enjoy the sight of huge oak barrels filled with wine!

We then loaded onto a Sprinter van to begin the drive through the vineyards which began with a stop at their amazing gardens. We enjoyed tastes of the various fruits and herbs, right of the plants, along with feeding the cute donkeys some freshly pulled carrots! We then drove to a tasting area at a small pond under big oak trees where we had a paired tasting with a light snack. After another picturesque drive we ended up at the highest point of the property where a beautiful glass tasting room with 360 degree views of all the vineyards was built. We enjoyed a paired tasting with small bites that highlighted the different Pinot Noir and Chardonnay’s Jordan makes.

After several photo ops and great conversation we were driven back to the chateau and offered the ability to purchase any of the wines we sipped.

Side note, the butterfly attraction that we had read about in the WSJ is what originally brought us to the winery was struggling due to the drought but may be worth a re visit in the future.

Favorite winery in Napa, by far
Jun 2021
My girlfriend and I live in SF and visit wine country on a regular basis. We've been to 10+ wineries in the past year or so, but this one is our favorite winery by far.

It can often be difficult planning visits to wine country, since with all the hundreds of amazing wineries here, decision paralysis is very real. If you're thinking through different wineries and are considering Jordan, stop thinking about it—you absolutely must visit Jordan.

I first discovered this winery since it was on Sonoma Mag's list of the top 5 most romantic wineries in Napa & Sonoma, and it 100% fits the bill. The winery is inspired by France, and it definitely feels like you've teleported to France once you set foot on the estate.

When we arrived, our host explained that Jordan specializes in 3 things—chardonnay, cabernet, and hospitality. I thought it was a bit corny, but it's actually quite spot on. Most of the wineries I've visited had great hospitality, but Jordan is definitely on another tier in this department. They make you feel so welcome, and all the staff are very warm and knowledgeable.

We did the Paris on the Terrace lunch, which I cannot recommend enough. The food is delicious and you can taste the freshness of the farm-to-table food. Everything is delicious and pairs beautifully with the wines they serve. The setting is gorgeous—French music plays around the grounds, and the tables have excellent views of the estate and the hills around.

Our sommelier, Aristotle, was the best sommelier we've ever had, hands down, at any restaurant or winery. He explained things in full detail, answered all of our questions and more, has a wide breadth of knowledge, and was very friendly and welcoming.

I tried to remember as many names as I could before leaving this review; unfortunately I forgot most, but the young, blonde woman who walked us from the entrance to our table and checked in on us throughout our experience was incredibly friendly and welcoming; the tall male server with Nike glasses explained every dish in beautiful detail and answered our many, many questions. And everyone else as well did a great job making our experience memorable.

My parents are visiting in September for their anniversary, and I'm looking forward to taking them to Jordan for the annual harvest lunch, which I'm sure will be as great of an experience as the Paris on the Terrace lunch (if not better!).

My girlfriend's moving out of the Bay Area shortly, but if she were staying, we'd probably come here every month, at least! But we'll definitely be coming back every time she's in town.

Tranquil Escape With Lovely Wines
Mar 2020
I was here for a trade tasting this past year and I have to say it was absolutely incredible. The tour was so informative, the guide was very knowledgable and the food was exquisite. The wines all spoke for themselves - Jordan has something to offer for every palette, and a few extra gems as well. This winery is great for new-wine connoisseurs and seasoned veterans alike.

Just ok
Nov 2020 • Friends
We did the winery hike. It was very fair. We just walked through dusty trails at the vineyard. Heather was nice but did not talk about things as we walked such as the oak trees, the wildlife on the property, the history of the property, etc. She just talked about the vineyards when we stopped. We probably had too many people on the tour to make it intimate. They should limit the number of guests. Maybe masks and Covid made it not worth it.
The lunch on the patio was nice but not enough for the money. I enjoyed the tastings in town for half the price much more.
I can’t recommend it to first time guests in Healdsburg unfortunately.

Fall Hike at Jordan Vineyard & Winery
Oct 2020
We experienced the Fall Hike at Jordan Vineyard & Winery in October 2020. Heather was our guide and she was very knowledgeable on the vineyard and paced us well for the trek - it is not just a leisurely walk through the vineyards but rather you are walking a bit of elevation to arrive at the beautiful hilltop building that opens on 3 sides where we sat for 30 minutes to have water and snacks. The view of the property is exquisite!

We came back to the winery to enjoy a delicious outdoor lunch. The food - yummy! The wine - of course, excellent!

This is one adventure I would book again in a heartbeat - great exercise and a great lunch all together on a beautiful property!
