Jess Stonestreet Jackson, founder of Kendall-Jackson Wine Estates, was a legend in the wine industry. Thanks to his dedication and skill, he popularized Chardonnay in the United States, with the best-selling Chardonnay in America for over 20 years. In 1983, just one year after he founded Kendall-Jackson Wine Estates, his Chardonnay won the first double Platinum Award ever given by the American Wine Competition.

  • Just a salute to Chad at KJ Wine Estates. He was very informative and patient. We had a great time and enjoyed the grounds. Recommend to anyone staying near the Santa Rosa area to visit. A nice surprise for us was the KJ Meritage which we purchased and enjoyed thoroughly.
