Spring 2012 at Sokol Blosser
Wednesday, May 30th 2012 by
Spring is in the air at Sokol Blosser! Come out to the tasting room to see for yourself but if you can’t make it out here to experience the bird calls and flowers with a glass of Estate Rose in hand, here are some photos:
The Rhododendrons are spectacular in bloom (above). Thanks to some warm weather we now have flower set on the vines, putting the vineyard ‘right where we should be’ this time of year… although as we are familiar with, ‘normal’ can be hard to measure in Oregon (right). Comparatively, this same time last year we were just about experience bud break. So far, so good for 2012!
Hillary checks the bluebird nests around the property to montior the eggs and hatchlings. The mirror allows her to see in side the nest without distrubing the birds (left).
Sokol Blosser is proud to be part of the Prescot Bluebird Recovery Project* working to increase and stablilize the Western Bluebird population in the area. These blue birds have just hatched (right).
Buttercups are spotted amongst a myriad of flowers welcoming visitors into the tasting room (left). We have plenty of outdoor seating surrounded by pansies and other spring flowers. Our custom ATV is cleaned up and ready for a summer of vineyard touring** (right).
