J Vineyards & Winery

Russian River Valley

Our Story

Since its inception, J has developed a reputation as a rare American winery with both superlative sparkling and varietal wines. The dual focus on sparkling wines and varietal Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris allows for a portfolio that offers sophistication and food-friendliness in a variety of styles for all occasions. 

As one of the original iconic California traditional method sparkling producers, J has always defined their own style. Winemaker Nicole Hitchcock fuses Old World techniques with a New World flair for a unique winegrowing and winemaking philosophy, including hand-harvesting and hand-sorting, as well as the use of Coquard presses, small open-top tanks and the traditional method to craft sparkling wines. 

At J, we are as proud of our hospitality as we are of our wines. In 1999, we opened our Visitor Center to offer a place where guests can fully experience fine wine and food pairings – the first program of its kind in Sonoma County. On your next visit to Sonoma Wine Country, please be sure to visit us for exceptional wine and generous hospitality.
