Welcome to Joann Serafini Ross

New Board of Director

Joann Serafini Ross is a native of Albany, New York and holds a BA in Communications from SUNY, New Paltz, New York. Her varied and diverse career has been filled with hard work and great experiences, all culminating in her current leadership and mentoring roles.

 

Currently, Mrs. Serafini Ross owns and runs Shibumi Knoll Vineyards, located in St. Helen, CA, and HMiCardinal, a manufacturing company headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky with over 600 employees. Originally purchased in 1970 by her late husband, Don Ross, HMiCardinal began as Hoskin & Muir in 1946 and remains today the largest shower door manufacturer in the US with seven locations across the country.

 

Prior to his passing in 2016, the couple created Shibumi Knoll in 20113. The name Shibumi comes from their favorite book, which translates into the Japanese concept of “effortless perfection.” The vineyard produces 1,000 total cases of estate Cabernet, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir. The 2005 vintage of Chardonnay received the highest score of the decade for chardonnay with 97 points from the Wine Spectator, putting Shibumi Knoll on the map.

 

With an extensive career in advertising, marketing, sales and management, Mrs. Serafini Ross has worked for companies including ABC Entertainment, Petersen Publishing, The Oakland Tribune, a Motorola manufacturing company and SBC Wireless. She is passionate about all aspects of her life and has developed a strong core of business principles over the years that have guided her to success.

The toughest times provide the greatest opportunity for growth and success.
