Founder and CEO
We’ve bottled the art of timing.
From California to Kansas. In 2017, we started our brand by crafting wines from the finest growers in California. In 2019 and beyond, we are sourcing and growing our grapes locally in Kansas to make our wines at an urban winery.
From a rural vineyard to an urban winery. We are bringing the winemaking experience from a rural setting into the urban core of downtown Wichita. Jenny Dawn Cellars at Union Station is a place where your moments are minutes away. It is your reprieve from the business of busy-ness, and your time to bloom.
Jenny Dawn Cellars is inspired by the significance of rail transportation that Union Station provided to the Wichita community. The terminal building had its magnificent grand opening in 1914 and the elegance of the art nouveau architecture is timeless. Over a hundred years of moments were created within this space. We invite you to our winery at Union Station to be a part of future moments with us.
