"Undercover Boss" Heads To Wine Country

Jan 25, 2012
"Undercover Boss" Heads To Wine Country
KJ's president channels his inner Ethan Hunt on CBS

rick_vineyard1Last April, the wine world was rocked by the loss of icon Jess Jackson. After 3 decades in the wine industry, Jackson left an indelible mark, but he's probably best known for his winery Kendall-Jackson--a Sonoma wine staple in many households.

Jess Jackson was incredibly proud of his family owned winery and was fiercely committed to bringing passion and quality to all Kendall-Jackson products. This philosophy is carried on by his wife, children and KJ's new president, Rick Tigner. Now, Kendall-Jackson wants you to have a first-hand, up close look at what makes their wines so special.

This Sunday, January 29th, Kendall-Jackson and its new president will be featured on the popular CBS show "Undercover Boss." The premise of the show is simple. Heads of companies slip anonymously into the lowest level jobs within their companies to get their hands dirty and learn about themselves, the perception of their company, and the spirit of their work force.

Get to know this brand like you've never known it before. This is a labor of love that is not to be missed. See how it all happens, from the vineyard to your glass.

Set your DVR's or tune in to CBS’s “Undercover Boss” this Sunday January 29th. Be sure you have something tasty to sip on hand while you watch. We recommend Kendall-Jackson Grand Reserve Chardonnay 2009 ($22) or Kendall-Jackson Grand Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 ($28) as a nod to the late, great Jess Jackson.
