Valentine’s Dinner Event Highlights

Empty glasses and a beautiful flower arrangement all set on the table for Valentine's Dinner.

Last weekend, we hosted dinner parties in the Jordan Winery dining room for Valentine’s Day. Our inaugural event was so successful last year that our 2015 Valentine’s Dinner sold out within a few weeks, so our chef offered to cook for two nights in a row. This was also the first time that guests could purchase event tickets or redeem Jordan Estate Rewards points.

The romantic culinary experience featured a Champagne reception, followed by a seven-course meal, paired with Jordan wines. Photos from both events, as well as the menu with links to learn more about the wines served, are included below.
