Not satisfied with simply achieving certified organic status, Oregon’s Sokol Blosser Winery took their commitment to the environment to another level, becoming the first winery to earn the prestigious LEED 2.0 Silver Level certification by the U.S. Green Building Council. From using biodiesel in farming tractors to generating energy from their own solar panels (the progress of which you can monitor 24/7 from their web site), Sokol Blosser’s dedication to sustainability is unquestioned.
2006 marked the inaugural bottling of the Willamette Valley winery’s estate Pinot Gris, and the end result is a wine rich in tastes of citrus, orange blossom, apple, and mineral aromas.
Featured as a Star Selection in Food & Wine’s August 2008 edition, production in ’06 was only 148 cases, making this white potentially harder to find than a wasted kWh of energy in the winery’s barrel center.
No longer available at the winery, you'll have to find the estate Pinot Gris wherever Sokol Blosser is distributed in your state.
