Farewell to Assistant Winemaker John Duckett

It is bittersweet for us to announce that January 15, 2021 was our Assistant Winemaker John Duckett’s last day at Jordan. Over the last 12 vintages, John has become an integral member of the team. He has helped our winemaking program continue to improve by seeking out better equipment and offering up creative ideas to enhance the flavors and quality of our wines. From dressing up as a Jedi master and a member of an 80’s rock band with plenty of eyeliner to countless Jordan Uncorked wine tasting episodes and epic dance moves, John has made an incredible impact on the team since he joined us at the young age of 22. We think John said it best: “Instead of saying goodbye, which I’ve never been good at, I’d like to just say thank you.” Thank you, John, for your dedication and teamwork over the last decade, you will certainly be missed. Please join us in wishing John Duckett the best of luck in his next chapter and enjoy a compilation video of his famous dance moves from over the years. #DanceOn
