Jennifer is the 2nd generation from the Breaux family to operate the family winery that her father, Paul Breaux, founded in 1997. In addition to her passion for wine, Jennifer also harbors a not-so-secret zeal for the culinary world. Experience working in the restaurant world fed her ambition to become a chef, until she changed directions and made the move to take over the operations of Breaux Vineyards. Currently she channels that experience into her wine and food pairings, and uses her palate to ensure the high quality that Breaux wine is known for. With Jennifer at the helm, Breaux Vineyards launched the Virginia School of Wine in 2013 in order to educate wine novices, enthusiasts, and wine industry alike. Raised in NC with family roots in Louisiana, her southern hospitality is always at the forefront of everything she does and provides a charming balance when combined with her sense of humor and her tenacity when spreading the gospel of her family winery and VA wine.
Breaux Vineyards was touted by the Washington Post as being “One of Loudoun County’s most ambitious and impressive wine undertakings” and produces wines with 100% estate grown fruit. Breaux remains among the top producers in VA and one of the most highly decorated wineries on the east coast. Read more about Breaux Vineyards here.
Jen loves to travel with others who share her love for wine. In 2016 she was chosen by AmaWaterways to host a group to Paris and Normandy and sail the Seine River, as guest lecturer, sharing Breaux Vineyard's wines. The group Jen brought with her toured small villages along the river and enjoyed ten days along the Seine and in Paris. Join Jen and visit Barcelona, then continue on to the south of France and sail the Provence region along the Rhone River.
