January means it’s time to announce Jordan Winery’s 2018 special event calendar, with several exciting changes to our Healdsburg events line-up. Highlights include more seasonal vineyard hikes, a special new release reveal tasting, which can also be streamed live online, and a new Jordan Estate Rewards 10th Anniversary Dinner.
Named one of the five best hiking trails in Healdsburg by San Francisco Chronicle, Jordan Winery’s hike across the 1,200-acre Jordan Estate in Healdsburg has new twists for 2018. In addition its popular morning hikes, afternoon hikes have been added to the calendar, with eight hiking adventures total available in April, May, June, October and November. A new hiking route is also being researched.
As part of the 10th anniversary celebration of the winery’s loyalty program, Jordan Estate Rewards, a one-of-a-kind dinner is being hosted on May 19 for Gold and Platinum members. Created in 2008, Jordan Estate Rewards allows customers to accrue points for access to exclusive food and wine experiences. For all purchases made in person at the winery, by phone or online, members earn three points per dollar to redeem toward private tastings, dinner parties and more.
