Meet the Family behind seinna
Raised in Ventura County, Westleigh returned home after graduating from Sonoma State University in Sonoma County. She graduated with a B.S in Wine Business Strategies and worked or interned in the wine industry in Sonoma, Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties. Channing developed her love for the wine industry after moving to Santa Barbara wine country. She has worked in the industry developing her passion for wine and wine marketing.
The two sisters had been closely involved with wine for several years before their grandfather, a winemaker, encouraged them to step out of their comfort zone and take a leap together. They developed Seinna Wine as way to continue on the family business with their own vision. Seinna Wine has allowed the sisters to learn and grow as individuals but also as a sister team. Mostly, it has encouraged them to acknowledge their creativity, passion and love for the art and science of winemaking.
Seinna Wine is closely related to Sagebrush Annies and Stone Pine Estate. Larry Hogan, Channing and Westleigh’s grandfather, is owner and winemaker of Stone Pine Estate and Sagebrush Annie's and is a close mentor to the girls. The name “Seinna” pronounced /seˈen.ə/ is derived by spelling “Annies” backward (from Sagebrush Annies). The poppy of Seinna is a tribute to their childhood- growing up between the vines alongside the wild California poppies. Both symbols pay homage to their family, in keeping the Seinna label close to their hearts.
