We had a great first time visit and enjoyed the wine tasting and purchased a bottle of a local wine.

We were taking our daughter and her fiancée on a champagne tasting in Healdsburg, where they will be married this Fall. We were searching for local bubbly for the event.
J directed us to a room devoted to such tastings, which were $30 per flight of five sparklers (reduced or e waived depending on purchases). The offerings were varied and delicious.
The service, however, was haphazard at best. Over an hour to get the entire flight served. Of the two people assigned to the serving room, only one was knowledgable about the wines, the process, and the winery. At times, both servers were out of the room for at least ten minutes. My family left to go next door to Rodney Strong while I settled up. This took another 30 minutes as I was offered some delicious reds (which I bought) while they processed the credit card.
My daughter liked the wines, but hated the experience, and she has visited a lot of wineries (being local), while we are from the East Coast.

Great selection, wish we did the food wine paring, beautiful facility. Good selection of sparkling and non-sparkling wines. The wine tasting person was great, nice and gave recommendations for places for lunch and other wineries we should not miss.

J Vineyards & Winery is a place not to be missed. Make sure that you plan a food pairing when you visit. It is worth the extra time. The chef is amazing and the staff is extremely knowledgeable.

Cool modern tasting room. Friendly server. Though we were rushed through our tasting (we got there at 4:30 with a 5pm close). The sparkling wines were good. We liked and bought the pinotage (red not found in many places). OK experience.
