Purchasing the Kalita Vineyard is the cherry on top of our 50th year,” said Sokol Blosser winemaker Alex Sokol Blosser. “I am really excited about the wines that we’ll be making from the site. It will add a whole new dimension to our winemaking abilities.
“We are sad to say goodbye to a beautiful vineyard that has given us so much pleasure since we first planted vines 21 years ago,” said Kalita Vineyard founder Arthur Kalita. “We have endeavored to be good stewards of the land. Our vineyard manager, Results Partners, has been with us from the beginning and has employed LIVE-certified sustainable farming practices. We are pleased to turn over the vineyard to the Sokol Blossers, a family with 50 years of experience in the Oregon wine business and unparalleled commitment to sustainability in all phases of the farming and winemaking process.”
