Video: Celebrating 40 Years of Cabernet Sauvignon at Jordan
By Lisa Mattson
July 8, 2016
In the summer of 1976, Tom and Sally Jordan were frantically trying to finish the winemaking section of the chateau before bringing in the first harvest of Jordan Winery. It’s amazing to think we’ve been making Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon for forty years. That’s 14,600 days. And the fact that Winemaker Rob Davis joined us as an intern in 1976 and still guides our top California wines today is remarkable. Forty years, one winemaker. Both milestones are reason to celebrate.
In honor of 40 years of winemaking, this video provides an inside look at the making of Jordan wines, from grapevine to bottle. Join us in a toast to staying at the top of our game for another four decades.
