Jordan's Estate Tour Worth the Time

By Ben Heskett

The CORKZILLA team can't be everywhere, but we do try to point out some unique wine and vineyard experiences for you to enjoy.

The immaculate Jordan Vineyard and Winery in Alexander Valley, Sonoma County, Calif., is well-known for its Bordeaux-style Cabernet Sauvignon blend, a consistently stellar performer across the years. Now Jordan has added an estate tour to its portfolio of wine tasting and tour options and we at the 'Zilla can’t recommend it highly enough, given what we’ve seen of the sprawling 1,000+-acre property.

The ‘Zilla doesn’t typically endorse particular tasting rooms or tours very often (though the Benziger vineyard tour in Glen Ellen, Sonoma County, is a must for the basics of a winery operation) but we were moved by our Jordan property tour earlier this year (One corner of the property pictured below from Jan. of 2013 – Thanks for the tour, Lisa!). It’s a beautiful place that seems to go on forever. Plus, the staff clearly has some fun. Check it out.
