My name is James Jordan and I am a 35 year veteran of the wine industry here in Dallas. I started out in 1983 knowing absolutely nothing about wine and worked my way into the position of wine buyer for one of the top wine stores in the metroplex by 1988. The store was recognized by Wine & Spirits Magazine in 1998 feature article as the best wine store in Dallas.
Now, after many years of working in the large stores with thousands of wines at my fingertips I have taken a much more low key and relaxed approach to selling wine. As much as possible I try to give people the opportunity to taste the wine before they buy it.
I do numerous wine tastings every year at The Wine Therapist located in the Lakewood region of Dallas. This would be considered my home base these days working with owner Phillip Nikpour. I also do tastings for people at their homes and work with various restaurants to put on wine dinners at their venues for a more complete food and wine experience.
I enjoy working with people of all levels of interest and knowledge trying to connect them to the wine that they will enjoy drinking most.
Please feel free to reach out to me for any wine question or request and I will do my best to help.
All the best and Cheers,
Dallas Wine Company
