A Taste of Spring Dinner Party Highlights | Jordan Winery

A Taste of Spring Dinner Party Highlights | Jordan Winery

After launching our Valentine's Dinner at Jordan event two years ago, Executive Chef Todd Knoll got inspired to host a dinner party showcasing the freshest ingredients available from our garden during the exciting spring season. This April, his vision was fully realized.

Hosted in the Jordan Winery Chateau dining room, the A Taste of Spring Dinner welcomed a sold-out crowd of 30 guests. The evening featured a Champagne reception with hors d'oeuvres in the storied Jordan Oak Tank Room, followed by a seated meal with seven courses created with beautiful spring ingredients from our garden and local farms. Every course was paired with different vintages of Jordan Russian River Valley Chardonnay and Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, including a rare 4.5 liter of 1977 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon. Feast your eyes on the menu!

Dates and ticket sales for next year's event will be announced in our January e-newsletter. Be sure to sign up for our mailing list if you aren't already a member. Learn more about Jordan culinary events at, and view our entire A Taste of Spring Dinner photo album on Flickr.

To whom may concern,

This is Kawai of LUXE SEAFOOD in Los Angeles.
Luxe seafood is new seafood wholesaler, but we already have cult following.

One of our very strong ingredient is Uruguay rice.
Our rice is marketed by Mr. Morihiro Mori who used to own a Michelin star sushi restaurant. Our farmer is famous Mr. Ichiro Tamaki.

I am really interested to ship out our rice to northern California.
We found a company who ships by truck/ ground for the half of the price of FedEx.

We also have extensive selection of eclectic Japanese tools, seasonings, and dry items you might want.

Please feel free to contact me.

Thank you and looking forward to hear from you.
