Direct Sales & Marketing Manager, Vidon Vineyard
Stephanie Hofmann, born and raised in the United States, has had her own business since she was eight years old. Growing up the world of annual speaking conferences, networking meetings, and self-made individuals, it’s no wonder that she created her own business, Palate for Progress, once she graduated college. Its mission is to cultivate conversations surrounding diversity, inclusion, and wellness in the United States beverage industry, specifically the Oregon wine industry. In addition to this work, Stephanie holds the position of Direct Sales and Marketing Manager of Vidon Vineyard, a boutique winery in the acclaimed Willamette Valley region. She also sits on the boards of three nonprofits, AHI VOY!, McMinnville Winegrowers Association and the annual Assemblage Symposium. When she’s not working in one of her many positions, you can find her exploring the many waterfalls in the Pacific Northwest, discovering her next favorite restaurant or reading at the local tea shop.
