Jordan Estate makes return to UK with House of Townend

California’s Jordan Wine Estate has signed on with Cachet Wines, the distribution arm of wine merchant House of Townend, making its wines available in the UK once more after a number of years away.

Jordan Vineyards and estate was founded in 1972 and is headed by second generation John Jordan, whose team manages 1,200 acres in Alexander Valley north of Napa. 

Inspired by the wines of Burgundy and Bordeaux, Jordan is known for its focus on Chardonnay and Cabernet, with John Townend, managing director of House of Townend, praising the producer for its “relentless” quest to show a “very untypical style of Californian wine”.

While stocks are limited, several cases of Chardonnay 2015, Cabernet 2013 and several mixed cases of “museum stock” Cabernet have been made available to House of Townend, with the first shipment arriving in June.

“We really want to show our wines in top restaurants and hotels within the UK,” said Ashley Cesario, Jordan’s director of sales for Eastern US and Canada.

“We distribute to 27 countries around the globe and the UK is where the action is with regard to fine wine. Our Chardonnay and Cabernet are perfect with great food and I believe that House of Townend have shown that they can supply our wines to a long list of the greatest restaurants in the UK.”
