About DeLoach

DeLoach Vineyards was started in 1975 and one of the first wineries established in the Russian River Valley, Sonoma County, California after Prohibition. The Boisset family of Burgundy, France purchased DeLoach in November 2003. DeLoach Vineyards has been a pioneering producer of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Zinfandel in the Russian River Valley since 1975. As a winegrowing region, The Russian River Valley is known as “America’s Burgundy,” a distinction in which DeLoach has been an important factor. The winery has received numerous accolades and 90+ ratings. The Wine Spectator’s James Laube calls DeLoach “one of California’s best producers of chardonnay,” and Wine and Spirits has proclaimed DeLoach “Winery of the Year” twelve times, including 2011 and 2012.

Kendall Jackson Wine Estate

Lunch with paired wines event: 1:00pm – 3:00pm

When you hear the name Kendall-Jackson, one immediately thinks of Chardonnay!

The late Jess Jackson, visionary winemaker and founder of Kendall-Jackson was noted for popularizing Chardonnay with his Kendall-Jackson Winery.

Your visit to Kendall- Jackson will take you on a tour of the winery to learn of its unique pioneering history, a wander through their lush sensory gardens, followed by 4 course farm-to-table lunch menu with wine pairings that will include a region select of available wine including Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

In this wine paring experience, you will discover the Jackson Estate Collection, a celebrated line-up of certified sustainable wines that showcase their prized, family-owned vineyards located across California’s top wine growing regions and appellations.

About Kendall-Jackson

Purchasing 80-acre apple and walnut orchard in 1982, replanting Chardonnay grapevines, they set about making a premium yet affordable Californian Wine. Jess sold the first case ever of Vintner’s Reserve Chardonnay at the Oyster Bar at Grand Central Station. That same year, the inaugural vintage of Vintner’s Reserve Chardonnay won the first-ever Platinum Award for an American Chardonnay at The American Wine Competition.

Kendall-Jackson was officially on the map.
