Production and Vineyard Hand
McKenna is a Templeton born native, and recently joined L’Aventure as our production and Vineyard Hand. McKenna moved away for a short period of time after high school, but quickly returned to the central coast to attend Cal Poly. While at Cal Poly, she studied nutrition and plant science. Mckenna quickly felt right at home here at L’Aventure working side by side with Dave, our Vineyard Manager and Patrick, our Production Manager. Mckenna’s love for farming and winemaking is very evident any time you speak with her. She will tell you how much she loves being a part of the entire process from start to finish. It comes as no surprise that McKenna spends her free time gardening and cooking with her family, while giving back to her community through her very own micro-farm on the East side of Paso Robles. A jack of all trades, McKenna caters on the side and makes her own Pinot Noir she will describe to you as her “hobby wine label”. Fun fact: McKenna went to high school with Chloé and coached Kate, our Assistant Tasting Room Manager in softball. You've just got to love our small town connections.
