THE WINE
This year we are elated to source our Willamette Auction lot from our new vineyard, Kalita. Situated in the heart of the Yamhill-Carlton AVA, this 22-year-old vineyard has steep slopes of lush, green vines speckled with native crimson clover. South facing with marine sedimentary soils, the wine from this vineyard is weighty, with dark notes of cola, chocolate, and black cherries. This is our first vintage producing a Kalita Vineyard Pinot Noir, and we are thrilled to be able to share it with the Willamette Auction!

THE WINERY
For 50+ years, the Sokol Blosser family has been perfecting Pinot Noir. Now with the second generation at the helm, the winery has entered a new era under the guidance of co-president siblings: winemaker, Alex Sokol Blosser, and CEO, Alison Sokol Blosser. Their focus remains on crafting exemplary wines that reflect the brilliance of the family’s certified organic 89-acre hillside vineyards in the Dundee Hills, as well as exploring the unique terroirs of the Willamette Valley with vineyards in the Eola-Amity Hills and Yamhill-Carlton. A certified B Corp, Sokol Blosser remains committed to an overall sustainable approach.
