This is better than average winery having good solid reds and good Chardonnay at a score of 1-10 I would rate around 8.5. The place and area is beautiful and this definitely work stopping. I would also recommend Chateau Davell, and Illuminaire down the road. Overall Jodar is solid and better than many in the area.

We went here and tried some amazing wines. The grounds are beautiful, with a wrap around porch overlooking the vineyards. They have an area that would be lovely for a small wedding under Oak Trees. The wines were a little more expensive than other wineries we visited in the area, but priced competitively with Napa Valley. I really liked the... More

Mitch is the BOMB!! Love the wine. Love the experience. Highly recommend. Bought the barbera and port, which says a lot since I don't usually like port.

We find ourselves here all the time! Mitch has so much enthusiasm for the wines he has you taste. He is so much fun and goes above and beyond to make sure you have a great time at Jodar. Machelle is an incredible chef and puts so much thought into her pairings. You always run into Bill the winemaker or... More

OK, Mitch was Fantastic, he kept breaking it down for us and offering all the Goods, we purchased 1 and a half cases of wine and port based on happenstance:) We stayed there tasting wines for almost 2 hours. Mitch with his stories and information kept us all in stitches based on what he was going to concoct next. The... More

This was the first time my husband and I have visited Jodar Vineyards. What a fun time we had! The staff there is super friendly and attentive. We had a lot of interaction with Mitch who is hysterical. He had us laughing the entire time as we enjoyed sipping on the delicious wines that were served. Mitch has quite a... More

Love going wine tasting here. Last time I was here there was a band playing in the garden. It was a foot stomping, booty shaking good time. Band was very good at getting audience to participate. Wine is amazing and service by Mitch was AMAZING. We were brought out chips and salsa and truffles to pair with wines and were... More

My friends and I didn't know much about wines or port, so the staff had us play a "game" where we paired off and filled out a worksheet on the wines and competed over who could get the most correct answers. The staff was very fun and informative without being pretentious. We also got to meet the owner and we... More

We always stop by this winery when tasting in the Foothills area. Recent visit with friends was especially memorable due the excellent service & hospitality shown by Mitch, who graciously -- and with great humor -- walked us patiently through Jodar's various wine samples and specials. We ended up buying 2 cases among the 6 of us, largely because of... More

We enjoyed our time here at the Jodar Winery. The waitress was nice and knowledgeable. The port was excellent , but we had to take a bottle of Merlot home with us. They have a nice deck area and there are several picnic tables. She helped us with a map and made several suggestions on who to go visit next.... More
