By far, Jordan Winery and Vineyard is the most amazing experience you will find in the wine country! You won't find gondola rides, buses, trains or other gimmicks. Just a beautiful etate with amazing wines! These folks are truly classy, without being snobby. No attitude, like some of the other big "important" wineries who want you in and out. Jordan is a private estate and accepts tours by appointment only, and you will not be disappointed. Arrange a tour and ask for Claire, who has such devotion towards the estate and is so pleasant. Upon entering the estate grounds (1000 acres+) you will feel transformed immediately. I've just completed my second tour of Jordan Winery and learned new and exciting things. The main house is a Bordeaux style chateaux, and I mean it is beautiful and authentic. I thought on my first visit, it would be "Disney-esque" but it truly looked right out of the French countryside, complete with French interior decorations and elegant furniture.
These people are serious about their wines and making delicious wines. Every member of their staff is committed to excellence. I left the other day, purchasing a 2003 Cabernet after a beautiful tasting with a fantastic food pairing. Ask for their library wines, and you will be a fan for life. There is so much to tell about Jordan Winery, you must learn first by visiting their website. Find this hidden treasure, and you will be in love with Jordan wines. Inquire about their estate grown olive oil and their new solar project which is expected to take them off the California power grid completely. Every corner of the estate is dedicated to making the finest wines.
