The best way to get to know a wine is to drink it. But if you can drink it while chatting to the person involved in it's creation....wino nirvana! And made from organic grapes in Oregon to boot (estate wines). Pretty rad experience.
Sokol Blosser is a family run affair. Bill Blosser and Susan Sokol founded the winery in 1971 and their children, Alex and Alison are the current co-presidents.
All of Sokol Blosser's estate vineyards are certified organic.
If you in the Los Angeles area, this sounds like a must attend event.
I am pretty bummed that I am attending another event in Portland that same evening. So I am passing on the invite to MyDailyWine readers.
Join Alison Sokol Blosser on Monday, January 26 from 5:30–8:00 p.m. at the Makai Lounge in Santa Monica.
"Sokol Blosser Winery has a long history in Oregon (there were only five or six wineries in the Willamette Valley when they started in the early '70s!). Alison is part of a second-generation that is now leading the winery. She will be offering her perspective on organic and sustainable viticulture, Pinot Noir in Oregon, fun blends like Evolution and Meditrina and anything else you and the other guests are interested in chatting about.
This is an informal gathering, and whether you can make it or not, we encourage you to invite your readers. Please note, however, that an RSVP is required by Tuesday, January 20, so they will need to contact me to stake their claim (and goody bag—as a limited number will be available).
To RSVP, you and your readers may contact me at email@example.com or by calling (707) 251-9818. "
