Ariana Penserini

Accounting Manager

A true Napa native, Ariana was born and raised in the Napa Valley and has experienced its evolution first hand. Though she spent five years away at college and enjoying worldwide travels, the allure of the valley beckoned her back home for her career and to start her family.

The past 10 years, her career has blossomed into a passion for the complexities that are unique to the business and accounting of the wine industry. With her convivial nature and extensive experience specializing in finance for boutique luxury wineries, Ariana is the perfect complement to the team at Schrader Cellars.

Outside of the winery, Ariana’s time is spent with her husband and two young children. In addition to enjoying Disney and Pixar movies, the family puts on their boots to get outside and enjoy the beauty of the Napa Valley and surrounding areas as much as possible. Hiking, camping, jumping in the leaves and of course enjoying wine, food, family and friends.

Today, she is the creative force behind Schrader Cellars, where she uses her keen business sense to manage daily operations at the winery. Colesworthy and Fred currently live in the heart of the Valley with their magnificent Golden Retriever, Rocky.
