Jordan Winery Reopens with More Hikes, More Picnics and a New Food & Wine Pairing Lunch

We finally have some good news to share: Jordan Vineyard & Winery will officially reopen for seated food and wine pairing experiences on Thursday, June 11. Last week, a new Sonoma County Health Order was issued, allowing wineries that serve food to begin welcoming guests again–but only if experiences can be hosted outdoors. The Jordan kitchen is gearing up now, and we will resume Vineyard Hikes and Chateau Block Vineyard Tastings on June 11, but we will now offer these Healdsburg winery experiences 4-5 days per week. A new Paris on the Terrace restaurant-style dining experience debuts on June 18 with two seatings five days a week, and seven Picnic Lunches and three outdoor dinners will be offered this summer. Reservations for daily experiences and Picnic Lunches open for booking June 1 at jordanwinery.com/visit or directly via Cellarpass. Tickets for themed dinners go on sale July 1 at 9 a.m. at jordanwinery.com/shop.

With a full-time culinary staff and many outdoor entertaining spaces, Jordan Winery, located just outside of Healdsburg in Alexander Valley, has been preparing to modify existing experiences since the COVID-19 shelter in place order began in California on March 17. The iconic Jordan Chateau is surrounded by terraces and lawns, shaded by oak, magnolia and sycamore trees, offering a picturesque setting with ample physical distancing. our winery terrace is being transformed into a Parisian brasserie with traditional bistro table seating. Beyond the golden chateau, nearly 1,200 acres of preserved open space, vineyards, olive orchards and lakes await hikers. Modifications to seating, food pairing presentation, guest arrivals, restrooms and other procedures have been made in compliance with COVID-19 safety and physical distancing guidelines.

We’ve used our closure time to reinvest in Jordan’s culinary hospitality program and facilities. Indoor communal tasting spaces, the Library and the Cellar Room, are closed for renovation. The Bacchus Courtyard has been redesigned, and landscape design projects are near completion at the Chateau Block Vineyard Tasting area. The garden surrounding Jordan’s recently remodeled guest house has also been refreshed, and the winery’s three guest suites will be renovated this winter.

Jordan’s Library Tasting and Winery Tour & Tasting are closed through September 7, and the Estate Tour & Tasting is being offered exclusively to private groups of eight people maximum from June through October. Guests should email reservations@jordanwinery.com to inquire about pricing and availability. Curbside pickup service will continue by appointment via Cellarpass.

Here’s a look at all Jordan Winery food & wine pairing experiences available this summer.

Social Distancing and Face Covering Information

In accordance with Sonoma County health orders, winery visitors must comply with the following guidelines:

  • Maintain a minimum six-foot distance from others who are not part of your household.
  • Carry a face covering at all times. Coverings must be worn outdoors when you cannot stay six feet from others.
  • Do not visit any business if you have any symptoms of Coronavirus. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus.
  • Do not visit the winery if you have been in contact with someone recently who has tested positive for Coronavirus or is suspected of having Coronavirus.
  • Do not use group facilities (bathrooms that allow for social distancing have been designated).
  • Bring your own bottled water for hikes.
  • Use hand sanitizer as often as necessary (hand sanitizer stations will be located at entrance, experience, restrooms and exit).
  • Cover coughs or sneezes with a tissue, sanitize your hands afterwards and pack out your tissue to dispose at home.

Here are additional protocols and procedures in place to keep our guests and our staff safe:

  1. Face Coverings. In accordance with Sonoma County health orders, face masks/coverings are required by anyone entering the winery or those who cannot maintain six feet of distance from others. We have also provided our staff with face masks and require that they use them for their protection and the protection of colleagues and guests. Guests are required to bring and wear their own masks. Disposable masks will be available to those who forget to bring their masks.
  2. Sanitation Guidelines. Our Culinary and Housekeeping departments have been long-recognized by the Sonoma County Health Department for their high standards of sanitation in food service and hospitality, but they are being even more cautious to help put our guests’ minds at ease. We are conducting regular meetings to reiterate procedures, monitoring employees who work in common areas and being even more rigorous about surface cleaning throughout the day. A portable restroom with ample social distancing space outside has been placed in the parking lot and is cleaned before and after each hike. Additional hand sanitizer stations have also been placed throughout the winery, as well as at entrances and exits and the hike break location.
  3. Employee Health & Safety.  Our Safety Coordinator has been very busy this year.

Guests who exhibit any symptoms of a cold or virus will be asked to return home and issued a full refund.

We will continue to do all that we can to ensure the safety of our guests and our employees. To review a comprehensive list of every safety measure being taken to protect everyone, request a copy of Jordan Winery’s Reopening Guidelines & Procedures.

Our thoughts are with those currently affected by this virus. Cheers to brighter days ahead.

4 Factors That Made 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon a Stellar Vintage

After releasing a special vintage like the 2015—the first Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon aged entirely in French oak—Jordan fans could think that the following vintage would live in the shadow of such a historic wine. But that is absolutely not the case. We’re actually even more excited for this month’s release of the 2016 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon—a vintage that combines the silky texture born from aging the wine exclusively in French oak with deeply concentrated fruit flavors from pristine grapes born from an exceptional growing season. It’s also the 40th anniversary vintage of Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon, so definitely a special vintage to buy for reasons beyond its quality. Here are the four factors that helps make 2016 a stellar vintage for Alexander Valley cabernet sauvignon in Sonoma, Napa and other Northern California winegrowing regions. The 2016 vintage cabernets are enjoyable to drink now but will cellar for decades to come. 2016 is so good, it made our all-time best years for Jordan Hall of Fame.

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Vintage Enjoyed Nice Weather

Mother Nature was very good to us right out of the gate and delivered a truly superb vintage. After years of drought, we received more than 80 percent of the year’s average annual rainfall before winter ended. This kicked off the 2016 vintage growing season on a promising note, because every great vintage begins with ample water in the ground before bud break. After weeks of intermittent rain storms in December and January, a record heat wave hit in mid-February, which triggered yet another early bud break. (The early bud break required us to slightly alter our farming practices in order to avoid frost damage. This meant mowing our cover crops earlier than normal to ensure that the cold air wouldn’t be trapped within the rows of actively growing vines.)

Flowering began in early May, which is typical timing, and despite some rainy days and a little wind, the flowers pollinated successfully in our earlier-ripening vineyards. A curve ball came our way from mid-May through Memorial Day weekend, in the form of a few rain showers punctuated by two heat spikes. This disrupted the bloom of some later-ripening vineyards, which reduced the quantity—but not the quality—of the grape clusters. The good news is that many of the Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon grower vineyards had already bloomed 75-100 percent before the inclement weather arrived.

Moderately warm weather carried the grapes to ideal ripeness from summer into early fall.

2014 Jordan Cabernet merlot grapes on the vineThe 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Grapevines Grew in Balance Throughout the Growing Season

Over my 15 years as a winemaker, I’ve always followed the principle that you need balanced vines to make balanced wines, and 2016 is one of those ideal vintages where the grapevines grew in harmony from spring and summer to fall. The pursuit of vine balance begins at the end of winter when grapevines awaken from dormancy and burst their tiny buds. If the buds break uniformly—i.e. in balance—they will, in theory, go through flowering evenly (as long as there isn’t rain and wind during bloom), resulting in balanced, tiny berries. During summer months, fruit set and veraison, the color change of the red grapes, will also happen evenly in balance as long as no strange weather events, such as heat spikes or rain storms, occur. Thanks to the good weather during these important times during the lifecycle of the grapevines, 2016 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were so evenly ripened that they possessed more fresh, dark fruit character than the 2015.

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Vintage Endured No Intense Heat

Intense heat (temperatures in the mid-90s to 100) can cause the vines to shut down and not ripen their fruit. Fortunately, the 2016 vintage had ideal summer weather with no heat spikes whatsoever. Cool temperatures and misty fog lingered well into late morning most days throughout August, and highs stayed in the upper 70s and low 80s—about 10 degrees below average. There was just enough sunshine, but without intense heat, which allowed the grapes to ripen slowly, developing complex flavors.

2016 is a Historic Vintage for Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon

The harvest for Jordan’s 2016 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon began on September 8 and concluded on October 7—the eve of our official 40th anniversary of the inaugural 1976 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon. Even though 2016 was an average-sized crop, it has flavor and complexity on par with the exceptional 2012 vintage. Right off the vine, the fruit aromas were bright, beautiful and rich, and the grapes showed great intensity of fruit flavors. It is a fitting vintage to celebrate 40 years of Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon.

4 Things that Made the 2018 Chardonnay Vintage a Great Year

Nature often rewards grape growers and winemakers with an excellent vintage the year after an extremely challenging one, and we’re thrilled to report that this was the case with the 2018 chardonnay vintage. On the heels of the difficult 2017 vintage, 2018 reminded us of the 2012 vintage—one of the finest we’ve seen in more than 40 years of winemaking. To celebrate the release of the 2018 Jordan Chardonnay, we’re sharing the four things that made the 2018 chardonnay vintage such a great year for the queen of wine grapes.

The 2018 Chardonnay Vintage Enjoyed Normal Weather

After years of drought, hot summers and early harvests, 2018 returned to what we call the “old normal.” Timing for the entire growing season was three to four weeks later than in recent years and reminded us of classic vintages from the 1990s, when winter temperatures remained cool and brought just enough rainfall. Bud break occurred at a more typical time in late March, and very little rain or wind during the May flowering period resulted in a generous but not excessive cluster count. When fruit set occurred in June, the crop size looked average, but as summer progressed, the clusters filled out beautifully, with much heavier clusters than usual.

The 2018 Chardonnay Vintage Endured No Heat Spikes or Rain

The summer of 2018 had glorious weather, including a return of the late-summer cooling trend more common before the drought years of 2012-2014. August brought its welcomed foggy, cool mornings but without the late-summer heat spikes we witnessed in 2010 and 2017. The only real weather concerns were a single heat spike in June during fruit set, and a little rain in late September. Fortunately, all of Jordan’s Chardonnay grapes were picked before the rain, and the weather was glorious throughout October with cool, foggy mornings and sunny days.

The 2018 Chardonnay Vintage Combined Quality and Quantity

Due to the similarities between 2012 and 2018, we were able to use the 2012 vintage cluster weights to assess the crop level for the 2018 vintage. We’re never sure how many tons of grapes per acre a vineyard block will produce, and while experience helps, growers and winemakers are more often wrong than right when it comes to crop estimates. The 2018 vintage was no exception; rather than producing an average yield as we’d initially expected, cluster sizes in many blocks came in at a record high—just like the 2012 vintage.

Chardonnay Grapes Enjoyed Extended Hang Time

After the long, cool mornings of August, September enjoyed moderately warm afternoons that ripened the grapes slowly, so we delayed all chardonnay picking to give the grapes more hang time. With no threat of rain in the forecast in early or mid-September, we had the luxury of letting the grapes reach full maturity through extended hang time, concentrating their varietal aromas, mid-palate character and depth of fruit flavor. Picking began September 18 and continued until October 14, which allowed the small berries to develop bright, apple flavors. These were some of the most delicious chardonnay grapes our Russian River vineyards have ever produced, bursting with bright intensity.

How to Use a Durand Wine Opener: Tips for Opening Old Wines

With a cellar of Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon dating back to 1976, we have the pleasure of opening up old wines from time to time. Using the ah so–a two-prong cork puller–was our preferred device for uncorking old cabernets for decades until the invention of the Durand wine opener in 2007. In this video, our winemakers demonstrate how to use a Durand to open a 1976 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon–our inaugural vintage. The Durand is basically an ah so cork puller and a traditional waiter’s corkscrew combined.

Created by a wine collector from Atlanta, the Durand wine opener is an invaluable tool for uncorking wines more than 20 years old. Natural wine corks begin to lose their firmness after 20 years, so when you open an old bottle of Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon with a regular corkscrew, the cork may break in half or crumble during extraction. This doesn’t harm the wine, but it’s messy. You may want to decant the wine in order to separate it from the cork pieces that fell into the bottle. The Durand wine opener is very easy to use and the best tool for avoiding the perils of extracting an old cork from a wine bottle.

How to Use a Durand Wine Opener

  1. Separate the two pieces of the Durand. Set the two-prong ah so piece aside.
  2. Take the corkscrew piece of the Durand and insert into the wine cork in the same fashion as a typical corkscrew.
  3. Twist the corkscrew straight down and continue until the entire corkscrew is inside the cork, and the metal handle reaches the lip of the bottle.
  4. Insert the ah so perpendicular to the corkscrew’s metal handle, and then shimmy the two prongs in between the cork and the bottle neck. The handle on the corkscrew and the ah so will form an X.
  5. Twist both pieces together clockwise or counter-clockwise while pulling slowly up.
  6. Pour your old wine and enjoy.

You can see the Durand and the ah so cork puller in action in our Jordan Uncorked video series.

Sonoma Family Meal Launches New Disaster Relief Fund

The demand for prepared meals is at an all-time high due to the Coronavirus pandemic. That’s why Sonoma Family Meal, a disaster-focused non-profit created two years ago to feed wildfire victims in Sonoma County, launched a Restaurant Disaster Relief Fund last week—a new initiative to pay local restaurants to provide healthy, chef-made meals to those in desperate need of food right now. John Jordan and the John Jordan Foundation made a $150,000 investment in the fund to help get the program off the ground. You can support this cause with the Restaurant Disaster Relief Fund Match Drive. The goal is to raise $300,000.

There are many chef-backed Coronavirus charities that are worthy causes—some chefs are feeding laid-off restaurant workers and others are setting up donation funds for their own employees–but John Jordan was particularly moved by this project after receiving an email from Heather Irwin, the founder of Sonoma Family Meal. The idea of a charity paying restaurants to cook is very new and smart–three of these coronavirus charities providing financial income have emerged in the last week in Northern California. John wanted to do something significant to support a program that helps the restaurant community, farmers, the economy and families in need—at the same time. His $150,000 investment is not contingent on reaching the match drive goal and is in addition to all of the existing John Jordan Foundation charitable programs in place.

Here’s what Sonoma Family Meal will be able to do if they reach their goal of $300,000 to fully fund this program:

  • Pay at least 20 restaurants and caterers to stay open as disaster relief kitchens
  • Put at least 100 Sonoma County restaurant workers back on payroll
  • Provide 100,000 meals for thousands of seniors and families facing food scarcity
  • Sustain this operation for four months

The $150,000 investment from John and his foundation will allow SFM to keep the doors open at least 12 struggling restaurants and caterers throughout the county currently providing meals, purchase 42,000 to-go containers (compostable or reusable) and provide 65,000 meals.

According to Heather, the idea for the Restaurant Disaster Relief Fund was born from the work with chef Kyle Connaughton of SingleThread Farms in Healdsburg, the Michelin-starred restaurant that piloted the Sonoma Family Meal program in mid-March and has been cooking 200 meals a day since then, each meant to feed four people. SingleThread began raising money from investors, wineries, and restaurant guests to fund their production of donation meals for Sonoma Family Meal. SingleThread and two other Healdsburg restaurants—Mateo’s Cocina Latina and PizZando—are continuing to cook meals for Sonoma Family Meal and are raising money through their own network of donors to fund their operations. Guests who order takeout from SingleThread through Tock also have the option to donate meals to their Sonoma Family Meal program.

Sonoma County has been through a lot as a community the past several years (from fires to floods), and now the entire world is struggling with this invisible enemy. We invite you to donate whatever you can to this cause and share with your friends who have enjoyed meals at  Sonoma County restaurants. We’re in this together.

Wine Vintage Chart: A When to Drink Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon Aging Guide

How long should cabernet sauvignon be aged before you reach for that corkscrew? It’s the question we’re asked most by winery guests and friends on social media, which inspired us to create a new kind of wine vintage chart for cabernet sauvignon. This wine aging chart gives wine lovers an idea of how each vintage of Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon may taste and when to enjoy it. In addition to the standard wine bottle size of 750ml, magnum bottles, three liters and six liters are also included. Each year, we will update our Wine Vintage Chart so you’ll have an up-to-date Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon aging guide.

Our wine vintage chart educates on older Jordan Cabernet Sauvignons

Wine Vintage Chart: Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon Aging Guide

Cabernet Sauvignon aging potential is quite long due to this Bordeaux wine grape’s natural tannins, ample acidity and affection for oak. But, as with all red wine longevity, the key to aging gracefully in bottle for decades is balance in winemaking. Crafting cabernet sauvignon with fruit flavors, fine tannins, and natural acidity all in balance allows for the gradual, graceful aging and evolution of great cabernet in bottle.

With proper wine storage, Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon has been known to maintain its grace and elegance in 750ml bottle for about 30 years. Though our winemakers prefer to drink Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon 7-10 years after the vintage date, we continue to receive emails from customers who are still enjoying bottles from the late-1970s and 1980s. (I opened a bottle of 1980 Jordan for my birthday last weekend, and it was magnificent.) As a general rule, magnum and other large-format bottles of Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon taste best 12-20 years after release.

As you’ll see in this wine vintage chart, Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon flavors change from vintage to vintage, but you’ll see some flavor trends in each decade as the wine ages in bottle. Taste characteristics range from the bold, ripe fruit flavors of black cherry and blackberry in younger vintages of Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon to the subtle aromas of dried cranberry, black tea and leather found in bottles opened more than 10 years after their vintage date. If you like to taste a lot of fruit in your cabernet sauvignon, it’s best to enjoy it within about a decade of its vintage.

Virtually all wine vintage charts are produced by wine journalists who give each vintage for the entire wine region a score, based on the growing season weather and how the wines tasted while young. We decided that our wine vintage chart should be more of a hybrid wine aging chart/wine peak chart/wine flavor chart. Due to the breadth of the aging guide–it goes back to the inaugural 1976 Jordan–we have broken it into decades below. There are also links to download the full vintage chart. We hope you find it helpful when you’re storing bottles of great cabernet and trying to decide when to drink them.

History has shown us that when winemakers harvest cabernet grapes at traditional sugar levels (below 25 Brix) to keep alcohol levels lower (below 14%), retain the wine’s acidity, and age the wine in the types of barrels that do not overpower the fruit flavors, the cabernets tend to be more elegant and less of the powerhouse cabernet style that has come into fashion since the 1990s. In our experience, wines that are high in alcohol and tannin lack the acidity and fruit to age gracefully and taste harmonious when mature. Even for a bottle of red wine, one of the keys to a long life is balance and moderation.

1976-1979 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon Vintages

The first few growing seasons for Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon were a rollercoaster. Drought conditions prevailed in 1976, and 1977 enjoyed a small crop that yielded balanced wines. 1978 was considered the best of the four vintages, producing ripe, rich red wines. However, the 1979 was more balanced and elegant across the region–ideal for the Jordan house style. All Jordan Cabernet Sauvignons from the 1970s are considered past their peak, though we do come across the occasional 750mL bottle that is still alive. Jordan didn’t start producing big bottles in 1977, and the large-format bottles of Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon are still quite alive, especially 1978 and 1979.

1980-1989 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon Vintages

This is the decade Jordan Winemaker Rob Davis rarely wants to revisit, as it reminds him of all the challenging weather conditions he had to overcome to make great cabernet. Journalists declared 1985, 1986, 1987 and 1988 as the best vintages of the decade upon release–each producing ripe, flavorful red wines. 1981, 1982 and 1983 were considered tough years that produced leaner wines with 1981 being the most charming of the three. Even though 1980 had a large crop, the vintage has continued to surprise us; even the 750mL bottles are still alive in 2018. Both 1988 and 1989 yielded more simple wines even though 1988 was a small crop and 1989 a bumper. As with the 1970s, Jordan Cabernet Sauvignons from the 1980s are considered past their peak, though the 1985-1989 and the 1980 Jordan still have some life in 750mL. Large-format bottles are allowing the 1980s cabernets to retain a longer life. Click view all vintages to see tasting notes.

Upon release, red wines from 1990, 1991, 1994, 1997 and 1999 were all rich and complex; 1992, 1993 and 1995 produced cabernets that were most elegant and supple, but equally delicious. The 1996 is considered a sleeper vintage that came around with age; winemakers were struggling to replant vineyards due to the phylloxera epidemic, but compelling wines were still produced. 1998 was the most challenging vintage of the decade in terms of weather, yielding leaner, more elegant wines. But, 1998 blossomed and gained complexity with time. Magnums of 1998 Jordan opened at our winery Christmas party three years ago were the star of the show. Still alive with lots of cherry fruit and layers of silk. These vintages are still drinking nicely, so view the wine vintage chart for flavorful profiles that suit your taste.

2000-2009 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon Vintages

Another strong decade for great cabernet in California. 2001, 2002, 2005, 2007 and 2009 are considered the best vintages, producing stunning, complex red wines. But, 2006 should not be overlooked, as it created cabernets that are concentrated and age worthy. The 2000 and 2008 vintages had the most challenging weather, but 2008 is a sleeper vintage–like the 1998–and has never tasted better. It has gained complexity with age. These cabernet vintages from the 2000s are in an optimal drinking window, with big bottles still showing the most dark fruit flavors, so view the wine vintage chart for flavorful profiles that suit your taste.

Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Aging and Flavor Profile Guide 2010-2016

2010-2016 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon Vintages

A string of great cabernet vintages with only one hiccup. The 2010 vintage was a cooler year producing more elegant cabernets, while the 2011 was so cold and rainy, that many winemakers struggled to make balanced wines. 2012, 2013 and 2014 are the best string of vintages in Jordan winemaking history; most Sonoma/Napa winemakers would agree. All three of highly textured, flavorful vintages with the tannin and acidity to age gracefully. The 2015 is a milestone vintage in its own right—being the first vintage of Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon aged entirely in French oak barrels. When looking for a vintage that flaunts Jordan’s hallmark silky-smooth style at an early age, look no further than the 2016.

Where to Find Great Food & Wine To Go During the Pandemic

Normal life has come to a screeching halt for so many people around the globe this month. We’re all adapting to new ways to eat, drink, work and retain the fundamental joy of human contact–all while staying healthy. Fortunately, state officials are stepping up and allowing restaurants to sell wine to-go or pickup or delivery. Jordan has always been considered a “food” wine primarily sold at restaurants, so we’ve compiled a list of restaurants that carry Jordan wines now offering take-out or delivery–and we’re hosting a Takeout Date Night at Home Photo Contest through April 30. Restaurant delivery vs. takeout options and wine offers are included. Please keep in mind that this is a very fluid situation, so services are changing by the hour in each state and to comply with alcohol beverage laws, we must have at least three restaurants in each area/city before we can add to our list. We will be revising this page daily, so please check back for new additions and leave us a comment with any updates.

There’s nothing like a great meal and a nice bottle of wine to take our minds off the unnerving pandemic for a moment. Please stay home, stay safe, pour a glass of wine and share your photos for a chance to win a Wine Enthusiast temperature-controlled wine refrigerator. Cheers to brighter days ahead.

Women in Leadership at Jordan Winery: Three New Faces

The start of a new decade coincides with some exciting changes in leadership at Jordan Winery. Because we’ve been making wine for 44 vintages and counting, we have several employees who have worked here for decades, and the time for their retirement has arrived, albeit bittersweet.  Today, we want to introduce you to three faces that represent the future at Jordan in administration, winemaking and viticulture–and all are female. Jordan has always had many women in leadership, and that continues to trend upward. Of the 10 departments at Jordan, seven are now led by women for the first time. This announcement also coincides with International Women’s Day (March 8) and Women’s History Month, and John Jordan couldn’t be more thrilled about the decade ahead.

Meet Devonna Smith, Chief Financial Officer

Devonna Smith joins Jordan Winery as chief financial officer, succeeding Ron Kampel, who has worked at Jordan for 24 years and has led the company’s accounting, human resources and information technology departments since 2005. Devonna loves to crunch numbers and find ways to improve systems. Born and raised in Colusa, Calif., she has lived in the Napa Valley since 1988, when she married her high school sweetheart. She will take on Jordan Winery’s chief financial officer role in April 2020, overseeing finance, accounting, human resources and IT.

Before working at wineries, Smith honed her accounting skills at several CPA firms in Wine Country, gaining specific wine accounting and financial reporting expertise. Smith received her Bachelor of Science degree in business administration with an emphasis in accounting from California State University, Chico, and she has worked in accounting, finance and management for more than 30 years.

Winemaker Maggie Kruse Jordan Winery Sonoma County Barrels
Maggie Kruse, Jordan Winery Winemaker

Meet Maggie Kruse, Winemaker

Maggie Kruse, who was promoted to winemaker at Jordan last summer, will now oversee both winemaking and winegrowing at Jordan. Maggie joined Jordan in 2006 as enologist and was mentored by longtime Jordan winemaker and winegrower Rob Davis, who retired in 2019 after his 43rd growing season. She is only the second winemaker in Jordan history. The daughter of a beer brewer, Maggie grew up in Milwaukee, Wis., learning about fermentation at an early age. She moved to the Napa Valley at age 17 to pursue her dream of becoming a winemaker. After graduating from University of California, Davis, she worked as an intern at two wineries before joining Jordan Winery as enologist in 2006. She was mentored by winemaker Rob Davis through promotions to assistant winemaker and associate winemaker over a decade, and she became Jordan’s head winemaker in July 2019. Maggie manages all winemaking and winegrowing staff, including the assistant winemaker, enologist, cellar crew and grower relations manager, and she also oversees the day-to-day operations in the cellars, such as quality control experiments, fermentation monitoring, tank and lot organizing, selecting and inspecting barrels, blending, batonnage, selecting corks and bottles, bottling and labeling.

grower relations manager dana grande at jordan vineyard and winery sonoma county
Dana Grande, Jordan Winery Grower Relations Manager

Meet Dana Grande, Grower Relations Manager

Dana Grande has returned to Jordan in the newly created role of grower relations manager, reporting to Maggie. Dana worked in the Jordan Estate vineyards from 1999 to 2012, before moving to Ferrari-Carano Winery to become its grower relations manager—a role that Davis always handled at Jordan. Growing up in Sonoma County, Dana was always intrigued by vineyards even though she didn’t have a family connection to the wine business. While studying biology in college, she was hired to run the vineyard office for Hoot Owl Creek and Alexander Valley Vineyards. At harvest time, she quickly realized that the real action was in the vineyard and learned how to drive a forklift wearing sandals and a sundress. After five years of working in the vineyards, she joined Jordan in 1999 as estate viticulturist and transitioned to vineyard manager during her 13 years with the company. When Jordan sold its first estate vineyard in 2012, continuing a shift toward focusing more on grower fruit, she decided to move to Ferrari-Carano Winery to be grower relations manager—a position that didn’t exist at that time at Jordan. After eight years of working with the Carano family’s grape growers, Dana returned to the Jordan family in February 2020, where she’ll work with Jordan’s cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay growers.
