I am a fan of Sokol Blosser Winery. They are located in Oregon, which produces some of my favorite domestic wines. The wines tend to be more like ballerinas than like boxers. Light on their feet and food friendly.
Sokol Blosser also farms organically and has had women at the helm since the start. Starting with the winery founder, Susan Sokol Blosser, and now run by her daughter, Alison Sokol Blosser, along with Alison's brother, Alex Sokol Blosser.
This video shows that this is a winery that gets it. They have noticed the sea change amongst wine consumers and are reaching out to the current generation.
Sokol Blosser Evolution White Wine $17.00
Pale golden color, floral aromas of honeysuckle and baking spices like ginger.
Flavors of ripe peaches and lime marmalade. Bright, refreshing acids give it a lift.
I would definitely match this one with spicy Thai dishes or perhaps chicken enchiladas with salsa verde.
12 % alcohol
Grape varietal blend: pinot gris, muller-thurgau, riesling, semillon, muscat canelli, gewurztraminer, pnot blanc, chardonnay and sylvaner.
