Lita Holmes

Tasting Room Manager

I was born and raised in South Dakota where I thoroughly enjoyed the magic of my grandmother’s house near the Black Hills! The summer after I graduated from the University of SD, I packed up and moved to Oregon to be closer to family. After five years of hiking, trips to the coast and general outdoor adventure, I moved to Walla Walla where I worked at Canoe Ridge Vineyard. Though I loved the wines, boutique shops and the friends I made in Walla Walla, my husband and I decided to move back to the Willamette Valley to be closer to our families again.
In my off time I still enjoy being in nature! The coast is one of my beloved places, I was married in Yachats! My favorite things to spend time on usually involve our dogs. Really, the only thing to know about me is that I love dogs. I have a sweet little Italian greyhound and a Tibetan terroir- black lab mix, ask me for picture! I am grateful and excited to be a part of Sokol Blosser and hope to meet you soon!Hobbies: Baking, crocheting and crafting, reading, hiking or anything I can do with my pups!

What you like about Pinot Noir: Its versatility and that it will keep you on your toes and make you work!
Favorite food: homemade Italian, grilled vegetables, spicy Thai and most desserts!
Places to travel: Italy, Egypt, Patagonia, South of France… or maybe all of France!
Favorite thing to drink besides wine: tea, coffee, whiskey, beer and anything with a little St-Germain.
