Judy Jordan - Founder“Inspired by gratitude and a shared legacy of values.”
Judy Jordan, a Stanford University graduate and geologist, is an accomplished businesswoman with more than 25 years in the wine industry. Having successfully built and sold J Vineyards & Winery in 2015, Judy has begun her next chapter.
Focused on the legacy of values established and shared with her children, Judy created a philanthropic endeavor in Geodesy Wine with the sole purpose of advancing women from the agricultural community. Connecting these young women with a village of teachers, mentors, and internship sponsors who will guide, support, and empower them is central to the WG Edge program.
As the founder of Geodesy, Judy is dedicated to the belief that social change can be accomplished through strategic philanthropy, business acumen, and flexible investments. Geodesy's micro-lot production offerings, of which all profits fund the WG Edge program, are site specific from precision-farmed, hand-selected estate vineyards. With expertise in geology and soil science, Judy started the search for exceptional vineyard sites for Geodesy in 2015. She and her team acquired vineyards in Napa Valley, Oregon's Eola-Amity Hills and Chehalem Mountains, and Sonoma County's Petaluma Gap.
Whether traveling to new and exciting destinations or staying active with swimming, tennis, yoga, golf, and hiking, Judy loves to explore, especially if it means time with friends, colleagues, and family.
