St. Jordan Creek is the 21st century expression of a family tradition in agriculture in Franklin County, Mo. that dates back to 1845. The land where the winery sits has been in the family since 1919.
St. Jordan Creek's winemakers have studied winemaking and viticulture with the Institute for Continental Climate Viticulture and Enology at the University of Missouri, the Viticulture and Enology Science and Technology Alliance at Missouri State University, and the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Cornell University. They handcraft St. Jordan Creek wines in microlots. A state-of-the-art groundwater geothermal cooling system keeps the tank room cool, like a wine cave.
