2011 Jordan Cabernet recommended in +PaperCity Magazine. #houston 
California produces some of the world's best wines — and something for every wine lover. Jordan Winery's 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon is a worthy Cali splurge.

No need to get firsthand advice from parents for me. #childfree  +NPR 
A new study suggests becoming a parent can have a dramatically negative effect on people. Alva Noë says it shouldn't surprise us that something so bound up with life and death is truly challenging.

Here's the #wine   #spritzer   #recipe  for the drink served at +Jordan Vineyard & Winery's #WBC15  after party.
We've been salivating over Imbibe magazine's photographs and recipes for several years. The lighting, the vibrant colors, the crisp yet soft look of each drink--we finally decided to track down their lead photographer and get a private lesson. Luckily for us, our photo shoot with Lara Ferroni coincided...

My favorite restaurants with patios in #Healdsburg.
The charming storefronts around downtown Healdsburg don't reveal one of its hidden secrets: backyard patios. Several restaurants offer al fresco dining from spring through fall and some year-round. Here's a list for your next trip to one of the best small towns in America, located in Northern Sonoma...

Very proud to have been a part of this day! +Jordan Vineyard & Winery  #40harvests  #harvest2015 #wearegiant
Nothing in life is a coincidence. I couldn't help but think of the power of fate on Monday, August 24, when thirty guests turned out to celebrate Winemaker Rob Davis's 40th harvest at Jordan Winery. Three months in the making, the entire event was a surprise that involved juggling dates and schedules...

Scenes from the first-ever Starlight Supper +Jordan Vineyard & Winery during the Perseid meteor shower.
Nearly 100 stargazers turned out on the lawns at Jordan Winery last weekend for our first-ever Starlight Supper event. Hosted during the annual Perseid meteor shower, the dinner party was particularly intriguing for astronomy buffs due to the outdoor setting away from a city where light pollution can interfere...

Story
Tagline
Wine media maven, travel addict, foodie, author of The Exes in My iPod and blogger for The Journey of Jordan Winery
Introduction
Lisa Mattson possesses 16 years experience in writing, event planning, public relations, marketing and digital media strategy within the wine industry. She is considered a thought leader in video storytelling, social media and digital brand strategy for luxury wines, and currently serves as communications director at Jordan Vineyard & Winery. Jordan Winery's blog, The Journey of Jordan, has been named Best Winery Blog (2012, 2013) and Best Video/Photo Blog (2013) by the Wine Blog Awards.
 
A passion for telling stories and a long streak of bad luck with men inspired her to write a novel based on personal experiences entitled, The Exes in My iPod: A Playlist of the Men Who Rocked Me to Wine Country, which releases in summer 2013. Mattson's first journalism job was penning obituaries for a Kansas newspaper in 1994; no wonder she drinks for a living.

ABOUT MY BOOK

Playlists. We make them for workouts, parties, break-ups or simply organizing our favorite grunge songs into a digital, heart-shaped box. When Harley got her first iPod, she created the kind of playlist every girl wants to keep on solitary lockdown. She called it The Exes—a collection of long-lost songs that instantly steamrolled her down a memory lane of men wider than a six-lane freeway. Skeletons that needed to stay in her closet—or so she thought.

Humbling yet reassuring, The Exes in My iPod: A Playlist of the Men Who Rocked Me to Wine Country is a no-holds-barred account of one woman’s quest to win the hearts of a motley crew of men during her twenties—that golden decade of poor judgment where college, career, alcohol and romance run a crash course. With a musical time capsule of lucky 13 songs, Harley takes you on a rockin’ journey through laugh-out-loud heartaches and headaches, as this redneck waitress from a long line of alcoholics searches for true love and her calling in life—only to find both in California wine country. Grab some earbuds, pour a glass of wine and kick back with an amusing e-book that will inspire you to create your own Exes playlist and discover the hidden beauty of all that baggage.

Share your songs and stories on The Exes Facebook Page.
