Owners Jane and Tom Lerum are Oklahoma residents with close ties to Carmel Valley. The couple was engaged on a family owned property only a few miles away from Joullian Vineyards. It was through spending time together in Carmel Valley over the years that led Tom and Jane to fall prey to the romance of the wine business.
Jane is an Oklahoma native who got her start working in banking and now serves as a director for the newly established Arnall Family Foundation. She graduated from Duke University where she studied public policy and environmental engineering.
Tom is a former Air Force officer and was stationed in Los Angeles before leaving the service and moving to Oklahoma. Originally from San Diego, Tom graduated from the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs with a degree in Systems Engineering Management.
Both Jane and Tom studied wine business management at the University of California, Los Angeles.Close Window
