About

What is Jenny Dawn Cellars LLC?

Jenny Dawn Cellars LLC will be an artisan winery located in the heart of downtown Wichita, KS. They will produce wines made from grapes grown by the best viticulturist in the nation as well as craft specialty fruit wines made from produce locally grown in the Urban Orchard.

 

Why plant an Urban Orchard? A message from Jennifer McDonald: 

How many of us like a good glass of wine? I sure do. My enthusiasm for wine, combined with my appreciation for agriculture, has led me to a bold decision: I want to create and bottle my own wine from my own orchard in the heart of Wichita. 

This is no simple undertaking, but I'm taking the first steps. I'm currently a home winemaker. Though I can't, yet, sell or distribute my wine, I have performed lots of research on the wine-making process, licensing guidelines and consumer preferences. 

Establishing the orchard will help me meet one of the regulatory requirements of becoming a winery. I envision an orchard in downtown Wichita where, not only fruit for my winery is produced, but where people can gather to learn and celebrate agriculture. Under these apple trees, I see the community uniting, children learning about growing produce and people feeling welcome to gather for picnics. 

 So, while I enjoy a good, robust glass of wine, I'm also savoring the opportunity to create a local gathering place on my journey to create, sell and share delicious wine with the world. 

 Are you interested in joining me on this bold journey? If so, please support this vision with a contribution. 

Jennifer has so much passion to plant an urban orchard.

 Results from wine research:

Jennifer spent 10 months conducting wine research which she ultimately branded as "Wineucation". A total of 80 participants tasted 20 different wines. The results from the wine tasting are below.
