Based on various reccos, went on the Jordan tour with an engaging young woman named Rennie.  Good tour.  Got to taste two chardonnays, two cabernets, some of their olive oil and some of their (French) champagne.  Pretty much everything Jordan does except for their caviar.  Also sampled (later) some Christopher Creek and some Stonestreet.  Jordan was the best, but it had the best glassware and settings for tasting.  

How did the Jordan family come into all the money it takes to keep this going?  I am curious.  

Also ate at Willi's Seafood & Raw Bar so-so (and no relation to Willi's Paris and elsewhere in Europe) and Spoonbar which was not bad at all in a town of 1,100.


Then that happened.

The place getting lots of raves, and a 4-star Bauer review right out of the gate (fwiw), is Single Thread, in Healdsburg.
