Culinary Pairing Pioneers
At J Vineyards & Winery’s luxuriously renovated Bubble Room, Executive Chef Carl Shelton creates an educational and innovative exploration of the Russian River Valley, pairing his imaginative, seasonal and locally-sourced dishes with J’s celebrated range of varietal and Sparkling wines from the Russian River Valley.
Changing every six weeks, the Bubble Room pairing menu is inspired by Sonoma County’s revered culinary and agricultural tradition. Over five courses, Chef Carl showcases the wines of Winemaker Nicole Hitchcock, using inventive cooking techniques to create unexpected, intricate and seasonal dishes. Throughout the experience, J’s welcoming hospitality staff educates guests on how the flavors of the food highlight the unique qualities of the wine pairing.
The J Bubble Room is a celebration of J’s pioneering legacy in food and wine pairing, first offered at the winery in 1999. J Vineyards & Winery continues to push the boundaries of food and wine pairing with a full range of culinary experiences at the elegant J Visitor Center, fully renovated in 2017.
During warmer months, visitors have a lighter bites option on the picturesque J Terrace, featuring unique dishes from Chef Carl Shelton. At the seated J Legacy Tasting, guests explore reserve varietal and sparkling wines with an optional artisanal cheese pairing to match each taste.
