Alison Sokol Blosser was the special host of a private wine dinner for the Chicago Business Journal’s 2019 “Women of Influence” at Nico Osteria in Chicago on Nov. 5. As a female leader in the wine business, Alison was invited to share her family’s story and a selection of Sokol Blosser estate wines to celebrate this prestigious group of women.
“I am tremendously proud to have been invited to host this dinner,” said Sokol Blosser CEO and Second-Generation Winegrower Alison Sokol Blosser. “It means a lot to me to support other women who are accomplishing amazing things in their careers, and of course, I love every opportunity to tell our family’s story and pour the beautiful wines made by my brother Alex and his winemaking team.”
The group was welcomed with Sokol Blosser Dundee Hills 2018 Rosé of Pinot Noir, and during the dinner, Alison poured Sokol Blosser Dundee Hills 2016 Chardonnay and Dundee Hills 2016 Pinot Noir. The meal was capped with Sokol Blosser 2016 Bluebird Sparkling Wine paired with dessert.
Honorees were selected based on professional qualifications, sphere of influence and community involvement. The group represented multiple channels including corporate, technology, healthcare, the arts, finance, law, education and non-profit. The Chicago Business Journal is part of the national network of American City Business Journals, with 43 publications across the country, reaching more than 3.6 million readers each week.
