J Vineyards & Winery has lined up its first print advertising appearance in the US.

The California-based wine firm, which specialises in sparkling wine but it branching out into Chardonnay and Pinot Noir variants, said earlier this week that it will run 'A Legacy That Sparkles' as a full-page ad in two November print issues of the Wine Spectator and on the publication's website. Accompanying the print advertising will be a month-long online presence at winespectator.com. The online ads have been designed to direct consumers to J's website.

"We are two wineries under one roof," said company founder and president Judy Jordan. "Our legacy is, and always will be, J sparkling wine. Our future, however, lies in the varietal wines produced from our ten estate vineyards.”

J Vineyards & Winery is located just outside Healdswood in Sonoma County.
