He also has fond memories of visiting Sonoma
farms to source ingredients. Caputo would often
purchase whole lambs from a Petaluma ranch, then
butcher them to create dishes for dinner party menus.
" I'm a Brooklyn boy, raised in concrete, and before
coming to Jordan I did most of my cooking in San
Francisco, " he says. " But then it became my job to get
these great ingredients right from the farm and not
screw them up. My favorite thing was going into the
fields with the farmers and picking ears of corn and
pulling up beets. "
CREATING MODERN DINING EXPERIENCES
As times have changed, so has the Jordan dining
experience. While today's guests are Jordan Estate
Rewards members and media rather than European
vintners and Hollywood stars, the essential elements
of Mrs. Jordan's entertaining philosophy remain:
warm hospitality, elegance and a focus on Sonoma
County ingredients.
" We've tried to preserve some of the old-world
traditions of gracious dining, " says Proprietor and
Chief Executive Officer John Jordan. " We want guests
to feel like they've been transported to a time when
formal dining was a ceremony. These types of events
are a touchstone in people's lives that are memorable
years later, and that's really what we want to achieve. "
In 2019, the winery unveiled a new dining room
design that reflects the modern era of entertaining
at Jordan. While preserving many of the original
18th
-century French architectural features, the
updated aesthetic conveys a reverence for nature
and the Sonoma countryside.

" I love juxtaposing beautiful silver pieces against
natural elements, so we'll bring leaves in and use
them on the plate and you then see them mirrored
in the flower arrangements, " says Todd Knoll, who
joined Jordan as chef de cuisine in 2003 and became
executive chef in 2007. " In my mind, the dining room
was designed to be a forest-like environment, so we
have mosses that we bring in from the estate or lichen
from the trees. "
Tables are set in classic French style, from the height
of the floral arrangements to the chargers. " I want
a classical framework that allows me to play within
that, " Knoll says. Menus are seasonal, inspired by the

" We want guests
to feel like they've

formal dining
was a ceremony. "
