Attraction details
Owner description: 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)

“Truly fabulous, truly sophisticated and elegant but no attitude!”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

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.

“Hard to top this vineyard tour!”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

Jordan's Vineyard tour (by appointment only - so plan ahead...) was rated highly by fellow TripAdvisor reviewers, and they did not disappoint. We loved this tour... and we have taken many other tours to compare it to. Not only is the service and scenery spectacular... but the food pairings with the wine were also great. The limit the tour to just 12 people and everything is laid out and prepared in advance for each wine/food pairing.This is real value for your $ (tour with tasting/food pairing was only $30.) We very highly recommend Jordan.

“Beautiful Libraries and Grounds”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

Did a private library tasting for a group. Wine and food pairings were good. Grounds well kept. Compared to some of the other wineries, they just didn't have anything that elevated them higher than average.

“Simply Beautiful”
Reviewed June 18, 2012

Forget the wines - the mansion and the grounds alone are worth the visit. This is just a breathtaking winery.
