Following our time in San Francisco, we ventured up to our favorite area of wine country. The Russian River Valley and the bustling little wine town of Healdsburg, CA.
These places are home to some of the finest Burgundian varietals of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The team J always greets us with the most hospitable vibes and has a high understanding of geology and the interaction with soil, climate, rootstock, and clone, every step of the way from farming the grapes, to making the wine, to enjoying it.
Everything seems to be meticulously reviewed and continually improved. As a certified sustainable winery, J Winery's Pinot Gris makes our #2 must-visit vineyard while on the west coast!
