Special VIRTUAL WINE TASTING EVENT on THURS, AUG 6 at 530pm Pacific with J Vineyards and Winery! 
After graduating from Stanford, Judy Jordan (daugher of the Jordan Vineyard & Winery founder, Tom Jordan) worked in Geophysics at Western Geophysical Corporation in Denver.  She returned to work for her family winery and honed her skills. Her background gives her the combined perspective as a geologist and vintner. She established her own brand and winery, founding J Vineyards & Winery to focus on crafting a singular sparkling wine bottling in 1986.  In 1996, Judy purchased the former Piper Sonoma facility in Healdsburg in the heart of the Russian River Valley. In 1999, she opened the Visitor Center to host wine and food tasting the first to do so in Russian River Valley. Today, J Vineyards & Winery is one of the largest estates in the Russian River Valley and is one of the destinations for wine tourists to experience Sonoma County wine tasting and wine and food pairings. 
In our VIRTUAL tasting, we will have an interactive session with the winemaker, Nicole Hitchcock, who has been the Winemaker for J Vineyards & Winery since April 2015.  Nicole will walk us through 3 of their wines:  J VINEYARDS & WINERY® CALIFORNIA CUVÉE BRUT, 2019 PINOT GRIS, and 2019 ROSÉ OF PINOT NOIR.

Carl Shelton, J Vineyards & Winery's award winning chef will pair the cheese and accompaniments for our tasting.

This event is an intimate event with the winemaker and so the space is very limited and is NON-REFUNDABLE, as the fees cover the purchase of the wines. Deadline to register July 30
Sponsored by the Stanford Club of SF

The event is limited to Stanford Alumni/Students.
