Jennifer Arant

Lions Peak Vineyards & Winery (Winemaker and Owner)

Owning a vineyard and winery is a dream that Jennifer has worked hard to achieve. She grew up in West Texas where her family had farmed land in Haskell for many generations. There Jennifer developed a strong appreciation for agriculture by caring for the family’s crops of cotton, wheat, maize, and corn. She attended Baylor University and finished her B.A. degree at the University of North Texas at Denton, majoring in Art/Interior Design, and had a successful career in interior design.

Jennifer continued her education at the University of California, Davis and California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo. The hands-on experience she has gained from working at Lions Peak and wine tasting and travel to the wine regions of the U.S., France, and South Africa have been most beneficial to her career as a winemaker and winery owner.

As the owner of Lions Peak Vineyards and Winery, Jennifer is responsible for brand development, winemaking, sales and marketing, and Web-site maintenance. She also began the Global Wine Boutique in Cambria, California, which features all the Lions Peak wines as well as those from small producers from throughout California and around the world.
