–The Granada Hotel & Bistro has announced Jennifer Congdon as the new co-wine director, effective immediately. Congdon will continue as the manager of The Station wine bar/wine shop in San Luis Obispo.

Congdon will be working alongside Kimberly Walker, the founder of both The Station and Granada Hotel & Bistro.

Congdon, a certified sommelier, was previously a wine representative for Bradford Wines, and Revel Wines. She co-founded Scout Fine Wines brokerage and remains a California representative for Wine Wise, an international importer.

“I am constantly amazed at Jenna’s wine savvy and passion for sharing her knowledge with others,” Walker says. “She has an incredible palate and enhances our vision for both the Station and Granada. Our team – myself, our amazing mixologist, Dominque Gonzales, our general manager Eva Morales and our new chef, Kenny Bigwood – couldn’t be more thrilled to start working with her at Granada.”

“Kimberly and I grew close over the years through our love of wine,” says Congdon. “We soon discovered we have remarkably similar palates, and share a deep adoration of high acid, food-friendly wines. We also believe wine is a decadent, delicious—and fun—exploration of the senses and we love to help people enliven their own personal wine journey.”
