More than 200 guests attended last weekend’s Spring at Jordan event, which is held annually to celebrate our new releases. This year, we transformed our chateau and terrace into a bountiful farmers market–a fitting backdrop for the debut of our 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon, 2009 Chardonnay and 2010 Estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Though the weather was unseasonably cool, sun peeked out from behind the clouds and not a drop of rain fell on the lively crowd. Ten cases of wine, 1,000 oysters, 80 wood-fired pizzas, 60 pounds of local cheeses and hundreds of passed hors d’oeuvres were consumed. Our chefs are now taking a few days off to recuperate. 🙂 Thank you to everyone who attended–and a special thanks to our local purveyors who sampled their wares at the farmers market, including Hog Island Oyster Company, Costeaux Bakery, Sonoma Gourmet Mushrooms and Paradise Shave Ice. Dates for the 2012 Spring at Jordan will be posted on our website this winter.
