Sokol Blosser Winery is one of Oregon's oldest and largest wineries, founded by Bill and Susan Sokol Blosser in 1977. The Sokol Blossers first planted grapes in the Dundee Hills in 1971. They borrowed equipment and started with five acres.

The winery, vineyards and tasting room are located off Highway 99W in the Dundee Hills appellation of the Willamette Valley. The winery has been a leader in research into vineyard cover crops, crop load, canopy management, and sustainable vineyard and winery practices. Their barrel cellar was the first winery building in the country to attain LEED certification.

Since 2008, second-generation siblings, Alex and Alison Sokol Blosser, are now at the helm. Alex became vineyard manager in 2006 when his mother retired and the head winemaker in 2014. Winemaker Russ Rosner, who had been at the winery 15 years retired. Alex draws from a 125-acre certified organic estate vineyard. Alison is the head of sales and marketing.

Sokol Blosser features a walk-through showcase vineyard for visitors including a self-guided tour. There are beautiful views of the Willamette Valley from the deck and picnic grounds. Wines are available online.
