In 1971, when founders Bill and Susan Sokol Blosser planted their first vines on just five acres in the Dundee Hills, there was no Oregon wine industry. With a passion for growing Pinot Noir and creating world-class wines, the Sokol Blosser family soon became pioneers and a key role in developing and shaping what is now the prominent Oregon wine country. The winery is family owned and operated, with the second generation now at the helm: siblings Alex and Alison Sokol Blosser. The estate has grown to more than 86 certified-organic acres under cultivation. The winery works to create wines of world-class quality, produced in a sustainable manner.

For Pinot Noir to become a world-class wine, there must be a level of care and commitment that goes beyond that of any other varietal. At Sokol Blosser Winery, that includes careful handwork on each vine, hand harvesting, fermentation in small lots and aging 16 months in French oak. Sokol BlosserÕs unique farming, harvesting, fermenting and aging all play key roles in crafting high quality, elegant and age-worthy wines with a sense of place that reflect the distinctive flavors of the grapes, soil and climate.
