Jenne Baldwin-Eaton started her career in winemaking with Plum Creek Cellars in 1994. For 22 years, Baldwin-Eaton made award-winning wines from 100% Colorado grown grapes and was involved in all aspects of running a commercial winery. The success and growth of the Colorado wine industry is very important to Baldwin-Eaton and as an instructor her goal is to pass along years of accrued knowledge and practical experience. She is currently developing and teaching the first Colorado AAS in Viticulture and Enology program, at Western Colorado Community College. She teaches courses in fermented beverage, sensory analysis, fermentation science, winemaking and viticulture.

Baldwin-Eaton teaches the courses through a combination of ground work fundamentals and hands-on experience. Students have an opportunity to work at the college vineyard, and make wine and gain knowledge from folks in the wine industry.
