Lauren CarpenterDirector of Communications and Brand Strategy

Name: Lauren Carpenter    
Hometown: Cedar Rapids, Iowa    
Been at Miner since: November 2015
Why the wine industry? I’m convinced the wine industry is the most fun industry of which to be a part. (And previously I worked in the yoga industry, so the bar was set pretty high). You know you’re in the right line of work when you truly enjoy coming to work each day.
Favorite part of your job: The people, the energy, the wines and the scenery.
Last meal: Steak frites with a side of lobster mac & cheese.
Little known fact about you: I trained my cat to use the toilet.
If you could have one superpower, what would it be? Teleportation! 
You love: My sweet family, sunshine, relaxing, eating, drinking wine, traveling. The usual suspects.
You hate: Legumes.
Hidden talent: Does multi-tasking count?
Favorite wine/varietal: Champagne.
You’re a die hard: Germaphobe. To a fault.
