Enter our Jordan in 40 Words Essay Contest to Win Prizes

In celebration of Jordan Vineyard & Winery’s 40th anniversary, CEO John Jordan announces the “Jordan in 40 Words” contest. In 40 words or less, share a story about how Jordan has touched your life or the life of someone close to you. Maybe it’s a vintage you’ve enjoyed with someone special, a bottle gifted to you or a wine country travel experience. Forty words isn’t much once you start typing, so a big part of the challenge is combining brevity and creativity to wow the judges.

Submissions will be accepted now and until March 31. For complete rules and submission guidelines, click here.

Entries will be accepted on the Jordan Vineyard & Winery Facebook page Contest tab. You may also submit entries via email to blog@jordanwinery.com. Please use subject line: Jordan Essay Contest. If including a photo with your entry, please attach a .jpg format image no longer than 15 MB. Limit: 2 entries per natural person and 4 entries per household. No purchase of Jordan wine is required to enter.

Four prizes will be awarded:

GRAND PRIZE ~ (1) Excalibur 3900 Deluxe Food Dehydrator (value: $275)
FIRST RUNNER-UP ~ (1) Jordan-engraved Riedel crystal decanter (value: $150)

My husband is in love with Jordan.  He speaks of when we visited the winery as a life changing moment.  We were privelged to be there when a past chef was there and treated to appetizers paired with wine.  What a special occasion!
