Four Courses for July 4th

Independence Day celebrations may look a little different this year.

In the past, July 4th was a time for friends and families to gather – in parks and yards, on decks and patios, poolside and beachside – to celebrate together and enjoy a traditional cookout or barbecue.

With the ever-present concern over Coronovirus, we realize some may be opting for smaller get-togethers or staying in with the family. If you are looking to switch up your typical barbecue, burgers, and hotdogs for something unique – we have the perfect four-course meal for you! Continue reading “Four Courses for July 4th”

Wine-spiration – Union Station

At Jenny Dawn Cellars, we believe that great wine is a powerful storyteller, and we aim to tell a unique story with every wine we craft.

Last week we released four new Kansas wines that pay homage to our Wichita roots and to our home in the historic Union Station. When our founder, Jennifer McDonald, was searching for a location for Jenny Dawn Cellars, she knew she wanted to be part of the urban core of Wichita. There may be no better connector, past or present, to downtown Wichita than Union Station. Jennifer was deeply inspired by the economic and cultural significance that train stations like Union Station held in the early 1900s. Continue reading “Wine-spiration – Union Station”

*Updated*! Rosé and Trains Wine Release Party June 13th

Hello wine lovers!

As you may have heard, we at Jenny Dawn Cellars have decided to alter our wine release plans in light of current events and the lingering concerns regarding COVID-19. We will be postponing our ticketed Rosé and Trains events (Fireside Chat, Wineucation, and Wine Dinner) to another date, to be determined. Now, this will not deter us from throwing a lovely come-and-go event to celebrate these new wines that we are so excited to share with our patrons. Continue reading “*Updated*!

Cheers to Chardonnay: The Perfect Wine for a Three-Course Meal

Chardonnay is one of the most popular white wines on earth and it is a very versatile wine to pair with food. Chardonnay can be paired with a starter or appetizer, a main entree as well as dessert. As we are all practicing social distancing and staying at home, it is handy to have one wine that can go with an entire three-course meal. We would highly recommend our 2018 Jenny Dawn Cellars Chardonnay from Sonoma Valley. Continue reading “Cheers to Chardonnay: The Perfect Wine for a Three-Course Meal”
