Sokol Blosser have a mission to be a world renowned producer of fabulous, sought after wines.

Their story begins in 1970 in an abandoned prune orchard in Oregon, USA, when Bill Blosser and Susan Sokol bought their first piece of land to start their very own vineyard. In 1977 their vine yard was ready for its first vintage and Sokol Blosser was born. From then their success blossomed and in 1979 their wines won international recognition at the prestigious International Wine and Spirits Competition in London. Armed with six medals, including several golds, Sokol Blosser were ready to show the world their distinctive and flavoursome wines.

Since 1980 their vineyard acreage has expanded from 72 acres to an impressive 19,000 and is still growing. With now over 400 wineries, Sokol Blosser distribute to all 50 states as well as export markets making Sokol Blosser a favourite all across the globe. They strive to create wines of world class quality that are produced sustainably, mindful of the environment and your health, and that express the distinctive flavours of the hillside vineyards.

They lead the way for sustainable and environmentally friendly wineries and have done from the beginning. In 1996 they were the first winery to be certified ‘Salmon Safe’, a program launched by the Pacific Rivers Council to publicize products produced without using pesticides and causing runoff that would harm salmon. Other eco conscious acts include using 50% biodiesel in their farm tractors and trucks, recycling and planting lavender, yarrow and Russian sage in the Vineyards to help provide habitats for beneficial insects.

“When our parents Bill Blosser and Susan Sokol planted their first vines in 1971, they needed all their youthful self-confidence, energy and determination to make their way because there was no wine industry in Oregon.”
– Alex and Alison Sokol Blosser, Siblings and Co-Presidents
