California born, Oregon raised, Lauren Minter made her way back to the sunny state (after also living in Portugal and Florida) to settle with her husband, two daughters, and Border Collie in Templeton. After working in the restaurant industry for many years, she decided to begin her career in wine at Niner Wine Estates as a wine educator. With her hospitality skills and knowledge of the local tourism industry, she is the perfect fit to our team as the lead concierge.
On her days away from the winery, she enjoys singing in a local duo band, going to the beach with her family, camping, and riding her bike. She claims her coordination strayed her away from sports, but we are starting to think that it’s just a front because we wouldn’t want to take her on in a game of badminton or a salsa dancing competition!
