John Knight

Tasting Room Senior Sales Associate

In a coconut shell, I grew up in Hawaii and Oregon, served in the US Navy during Desert Shield/Storm, Studied at Chemeketa, initially  worked in Interior Design, and the Fine Furniture business before changing careers to suit my passion for food & wine. I made my bones in the Wine/Food industry starting out with Remy Wines, Solena and Cana’s Feast Winery and eventually becoming Maitre D’ at Nick’s Italian Cafe in charming McMinnville. Now at present I am over the moon to be a part of an amazing group of professionals who I consider extended family. I look forward to many happy years in the dream career that is… Sokol Blosser Winery.
