Our J winemaking team, led by Nicole Hitchcock, strives to translate the diversity of the Russian River Valley, from the cool, coastal locations to the bright, sun-drenched hillsides, to the bottle. Each estate vineyard offers a distinct expression of a different location within the vast Russian River Valley AVA. 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.
