A Sparkling Philosophy

Since 1986, J Vineyards & Winery has developed a reputation as one of the top sparkling and varietal wine producers in California. Known for its celebrated estate vineyards and world-class hospitality, what truly sets J apart is its Traditional Method sparkling process and elevated winemaking techniques.

At J, they believe wine, like food, is multidimensional. It is far more than just something to be consumed – it tells our most human stories and forms part of our culture, identity, and community. It takes us on a journey and opens our eyes to a world beyond our glass.

The Vineyards

Our winemaking philosophy begins with sourcing the best fruit at the optimal time from the best locations in the Russian River Valley and Sonoma County. Diverse soils and cool, coastal micro-climates create unique growing conditions to maximize flavor and expression. In the renowned wine growing region, J Vineyards & Winery are true stewards of the land, tending to cool-climate grape varieties that offer fruit forward flavors and a crisp natural acidity.

Born and raised in Carmel, California, Nicole first discovered her passion for wine while working alongside well-respected restaurant sommeliers. What drew her in especially was the worldwide appeal and diversity of wine. “Wine is like a universal language. It can transcend physical and cultural boundaries, and ultimately brings people together,” Nicole explains. “From early on, I was enamored by all parts of the industry and process — the journey from vine to glass, the varying tastes, and the cultural aspects.”
