Sokol Blosser Winery founder Susan Sokol Blosser has announced her retirement as president, and the appointment of her children – Alex and Alison – as co-presidents, the Portland Business Journal reports.
In their new roles, Alex and Alison Sokol Blosser will oversee operations and implement the strategic vision for the Dundee, Oregon, winery, which was founded in 1971 by their mother and her then-husband, Bill Blosser.
Nik Blosser, the founders’ eldest son, will continue in his role as chairman of the winery’s board of directors, assisting his siblings with the direction and oversight of the business.
Susan Sokol Blosser, 63, assumed the role of president of the winery in 1991. The author of the memoir, “”t Home in the Vineyard,” said she looks forward to having more time for writing projects and deeper involvement in environmental issues.
