“BECAUSE IT REMINDED HER OF HER GRANDFATHER NICK’S SIGNATURE BOW TIE, SHE NAMED THE VINEYARD TO HONOR HIM.”
Our Bow Tie Vineyard follows the undulating curves of the Russian River’s western shore. It’s located in Russian River Valley’s Middle Reach neighborhood, and the vineyard’s unique terroir highlights ancient riverbeds that have been deposited over millennia.
J’s founder Judy Jordan dubbed the vineyard Bow Tie during a helicopter ride over the region. As she flew directly above the vineyard, she observed its outline as a distinct bow tie shape. Because it reminded her of her grandfather Nick’s signature bow tie, she named the vineyard to honor him.
