Wine Country Elegance in Alexander Valley

Jordan Winery Director of Hospitality Nitsa Knoll was inspired by the noble oaks on the 1,200 acre estate in creating this elegant Christmas tablescape. I loved how Knoll added touches of whimsy to the formal setting with jingle bells made of natural eucalyptus pods painted silver. Vintage Tiffany egg cups double as stylish votives while acorn clusters on the table represent the hospitality that Jordan is famous for. 

Placesetting detail

The attention to detail is clear on the table, honed over time by Nitsa and husband, on-site Executive Chef Todd Knoll, through regular food and wine experiences held at Jordan during year. Jordan Winery is open by appointment Mondays through Saturdays year round, and daily from mid-April to mid-November. Jordan is closed for the holidays from December 21 through January 2, 2014. 1474 Alexander Valley Road, Healdsburg.
