It’s hard for us to believe, but 2022 marks 50 years since Tom and Sally Jordan embarked on the journey of a lifetime—to establish a winery and craft world-class cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay wines inspired by France’s great chateaux in beautiful Alexander Valley.

Coinciding with our winery’s golden anniversary this year is the 10-year anniversary of the John Jordan Foundation. For many months, we have been working on assembling a series of festive events to celebrate mark these dual milestones—both at the winery and across the country. For the first time in our history, we will host Social Impact Summer, a multi-day culinary series that will extend Jordan’s philanthropic impact to organizations that need it most. One hundred percent of the event ticket proceeds will benefit nonprofit partners: Clayton Early Learning in Denver and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Middle Tennessee in Nashville.

“We’re looking forward to ‘going big’ with social impact this summer in Denver and Nashville,” says John Jordan. “It is a privilege to partner with organizations with such impressive track records of serving these three communities.”

Kicking off in Denver on June 3-4, Jordan’s Social Impact Summer events will be filled with rare Jordan wines from special library vintages to 18-liter big bottles, food pairings by celebrated chefs, live music, celebrity guests and other surprises. The festivities in each city will include epicurean events: a festive reception-style Big Bottle Party and/or a decadent multi-course dinner and auction, Gather in the Garden.

Find out how you can join the celebration below. As always, your purchase of Jordan wines and proceeds from Jordan Winery event tickets fund the John Jordan Foundation, which works to provide disadvantaged youth and young adults with the tools needed to succeed educationally and professionally.
