    J VINEYARDS & WINERY COMMEMORATES 25th ANNIVERSARY WITH SPECIAL VISITOR CENTER EVENT 

    Russian River Valley wine producer, J Vineyards & Winery, kicks off its 25th Anniversary with a special public celebration and harvest party on Saturday, September 17.

    The festivities will be held at the winery’s Visitor Center from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will feature products from specialty food producers such as Hog Island Oyster Company, Tsar Nicoulai Caviar, and the Savory Spice Shop in Santa Rosa. There will also be live music, and tastings of past and present J wines. Founder Judy Jordan will be signing bottles, and J’s new Winemaker, Melissa Stackhouse, will be giving fans a sneak peek of the 2010 vintage wines.

    “I’m looking forward to meeting everyone who attends,” says Judy Jordan, Founder and President of J Vineyards & Winery. “This is a major milestone for J and a wonderful occasion to toast those who have helped in the success of J.”

    In 1991, J launched its first wine – a 1987 Vintage Brut – just as the Gulf War in Kuwait began. It was not exactly the perfect time to encourage Americans to celebrate, but every bottle was sold – 4,000 cases in 32 cities within six months.

    From Day One, J was embraced as the “essence of style,” an all-American alternative to French champagne. J Vintage Brut has been a welcome fixture on high-profile restaurant wine lists and top hotels across the country. Queen Elizabeth sipped J at the White House, Mikhail Gorbachev spoke of world peace with a glass of J in hand, and the distinctive sparkling wines were the official celebratory beverage of the Academy Awards Governors Ball for four consecutive years.

    Admission is $40 per person for Club J members and $55 for non-members. Included is a commemorative glass and inspired culinary creations by J’s Executive Chef Mark E. Caldwell.

    Tickets are now on sale at the Winery’s Visitor Center. To purchase tickets by phone, please call (707) 431-5430, or go online at http://www.jwine.com.

    ABOUT J

    J Vineyards & Winery Visitor Center and Bubble Room is located at 11447 Old Redwood Highway, south of Healdsburg. The winery focuses on Brut and Brut Rosé sparkling wines, as well as Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Gris Estate varietal wines, produced from grapes farmed primarily within Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley appellation.

    Founded in 1986, J Vineyards & Winery is an independently-owned Sonoma County winery. To learn more, or to join the J Wine Club, go to http://www.jwine.com. Follow us on Facebook by friending J Vineyards & Winery.
