WINEGROWING SITES vineyards

A diverse collection of roughly 70 different vineyard blocks for Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Russian River Valley Chardonnay allows us to maintain the hallmark consistency and quality for which Jordan wines have become famous.

Jordan vineyards include estate blocks, which have more clay-rich soils similar to the Right Bank of Bordeaux, as well as well-drained, mid-slope grower parcels with mineral-rich soils more reminiscent of Bordeaux’s Left Bank. Alexander Valley’s combination of soil type and vineyard location gives our Cabernet Sauvignon a silky complexity found in the great first growths of Bordeaux.

The gravelly, porous soils found in grower vineyards in the Russian River Valley benchlands impart a seamlessness and subtle minerality in our Chardonnay, similar to the grand cru whites of Burgundy.

These Sonoma County wine regions help to realize our French-inspired winemaking philosophy. 

more about our winemaking

Alexander Valley

Located at the northern end of Sonoma County, Alexander Valley is a long, narrow winegrowing region defined by the Russian River winding through its west side and Mayacamas Mountains lining its eastern borders. The diversity of the terrain and its soils is fascinating for both vintners and scientists.

Russian River Valley

Located in the geographical heart of Sonoma County, Russian River Valley is sculpted by cooling fog from the Pacific Ocean near its western boundary. It is the largest of Sonoma County’s 16 wine appellations and where the top wineries go to source their cool-climate grapes.
