Artists and Jordan Vineyard & Winery: Since 1976, the Jordan family has been heralded for its elegant wines, culinary excellence and gracious hospitality. Over the years, the Jordan’s have commissioned artists to capture the beauty of the winery chateau through the seasons – its ivy-draped façade, window boxes sprouting spring flowers, the antique clock above a sweeping balcony. To celebrate its 40th anniversary in 2012, Jordan Vineyard & Winery is bringing wine country to Dallas, Texas. Local artists will be challenged to create a commemorative work of art that combines the essence of Jordan wine with Dallas’s distinct culture, design and culinary experiences.
