A 25-year legacy of making exceptional wines to inspire in Sonoma County's Russian River Valley. www.JWine.com As a gutsy 25-year old woman, Judy Jordan set out on a quest to create her vision of the perfect sparkling wine. Her journey took her to Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley where she and her team masterfully crafted an elegant sparkling wine collection that was met with a passionately loyal following. Judy was inspired by Mother Nature's bounty of microclimates laced throughout J's 9 Russian River vineyards, and recognized the ability to also craft remarkable still wines. When people told her it was "impossible" for a sparkling wine house to make great still wine, it further fueled her competitive nature to bring the ultimate wine experience to life. With a commitment to innovation and a passion for wine, today we are proud to produce award-winning sparkling wines as well as highly lauded varietal still wines. www.jwine.com www.jvineyards.blogspot.com www.twitter.com/JWinery Facebook: www.facebook.com/JWinery Read less

Tasting Notes:

The 2010 J Vineyards Viognier features a very subtle gardenia and orange blossom fragrance on the nose. This seductive, layered wine exhibits creamy peach, honey and vanilla flavor on the palate. Viognier is the perfect “bridge” wine for salads featuring multiple greens. The key is to not drench the greens with heavy dressings. Fresh, crisp, and clean are the watchwords for food pairings with Viognier. Our Executive Chef Mark E. Caldwell suggests pairing this wine with spinach and arugula salad drizzled with a light sherry vinaigrette dressing. Add several small slices of summer melon and thinly shaved prosciutto for maximum flavor experience.

Grapes were hand-harvested and gently pressed in J’s Coquard press. Our Coquard French press has been designed to minimize the extraction of harsh seed and skin flavors.
