(Nov. 28, 2023, Yountville, Calif.)—Jason Lede, director of communications of Cliff Lede Vineyards and the adjacent Poetry Inn, Napa Valley’s most intimate and exclusive accommodations, is delighted to announce the addition of Jennifer Rose to the team as hotel manager. With nearly three decades of diverse experience in the luxury hospitality, wine, travel and culinary industries, Jennifer is committed to ensuring that guests experience the highest level of tranquility, luxury, and service during their stay.
A California native, Jennifer was born in Pasadena and grew up in the Bay Area. In 1995, she relocated to Napa Valley to pursue a role as the executive assistant to the president of the Culinary Institute of America, just as the organization was inaugurating the Greystone campus in St. Helena. Throughout her seven-year tenure there, Jennifer ascended through various roles in marketing, public relations and special events, each nurturing her deep-rooted passion for the world of food, wine and hospitality and further solidifying her love for one of its global epicenters, Napa Valley.
In 2003, she launched the Provenance Winery Visitor Center as director of hospitality for the Chalone Wine Group. Later, upon the group’s acquisition by Diageo, she transitioned to the role of sales manager for Domaine Chandon. Over a decade in this position, Jennifer managed trade, media, special events, community and hotel concierge relations, and more for both Domaine Chandon and Newton Vineyards. Concurrently, she was elected to and served a two-year term as the vice president of the Yountville Chamber of Commerce.
In her most recent endeavor, Jennifer assumed the role of opening general manager for privately owned luxury vacation estate Château de Ninis in Sonoma. As the founding general manager, she struck a balance between hospitality, vineyard management and wine, seamlessly blending her professional experience with her personal interests.
“With extensive industry experience and a deep understanding of the luxury travel landscape in Napa Valley and beyond, Jennifer possesses the unique ability to anticipate each guest’s perspective,” notes Lede. “We look forward to working with her to further Poetry Inn’s reputation for unparalleled hospitality.”
