Spring Growing Season Video Update from our Garden

Ideal spring weather in Alexander Valley has already afforded us an exciting harvest of lettuces, onions, strawberries and herbs, as well as near-perfect blooms on our fruit trees and impressive growth of our raspberry bushes. In this video, I discuss what’s happening this month in our garden behind the winery, including our tree-grafting experiments, which will allow us to grow multiple stone fruits on one Granny Smith apple tree.

Thank you for the wonderful coverage of the garden at Jordan Winery. It has inspired me to get out side and dig in my own. After this weekends rain of course and on a much smaller scale.

Dear Noreen,
We’re so glad our garden has brought you inspiration. We hope you’ll share pictures with us. You’ll also find Jordan on Flickr and you could post your photos on our Facebook wall: Or just e-mail to, so we can share with our chef. Wishing your warm weather and a bountiful harvest.
