Wine Country Gifts That Give Back
Wine is a natural gift choice and one of the finest arrays of wine country gifts for the holidays is found at the inimitable Jordan Winery. Making incomparable Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, Jordan has recently branched out into Champagne (yes, true Champagne from France) and caviar, so your wine country gifts can have many dimensions.
One of the most thoughtful gifts you can give from Jordan is the opportunity to experience the winery, a stunning French-style chateau among the rolling hills of Alexander Valley.
Nobody does a winery experience better, from their vineyard hikes to their chauffeur-driven estate tours to seated food pairings. Go online and choose a gift of an experience to remember at Jordan. Owner John Jordan has a foundation that works to aid the wildfire victims, and continues to help their community.
With all of these options for great wine country gifts, many of which give back to wine country after the tragic October wildfires in Napa, Sonoma and Mendocino counties, your holiday shopping will be easy and you will be giving back to some great causes.
