Susan Sokol Blosser, President of Sokol Blosser Winery

"Hey, let's put on a show."
"How about if we invent a water-run engine?"
"No, I have it. Let's open a winery."

Imagine starting an entirely new career based on a whim. Well that's what Susan Sokol Blosser and her ex-husband Bill Blosser did, over thirty harvests ago. Not only did they launch their own winery and vineyard, they also helped build the very successful Oregon wine industry. Armed with a good education, strong commitment and a vivid idea of what grapes they wanted to grow, they created success. And now Susan is in the process of passing along what she's learned along the way to her children. And to us in the latest episode of "Here's What I Know" -- listen now.

For more information about the organic wines of Sokol Blosser Winery, see If after listening to the podcast you want to hear more about Susan's life story, she's written a book, "At Home in the Vineyard: Cultivating a Winery, a Vineyard and a Life."
