Oregon Winery Sokol Blosser Recognized By Worldwide Non Profit

(Dundee, Oregon) – One of Oregon’s pioneering winemakers has crossed another threshold: snagging two high profile awards from the global non profit B Lab. Sokol Blosser, located in the midst of Oregon’s famed Yamhill Wine Country, has been recognized as a 2019 Best for The World: Changemaker in recognition of their significant improvement to their overall impact on their workers, customers, communities, the environment, and governance.

In addition, Sokol Blosser earned the Best for the World: Environment honor in recognition of their environmental performance and sustainable business practices.

These Best For The World awards are handed out by B Lab, a group that certifies and supports Certified B Corporations, which are for-profit companies dedicated to using business as a force for good. Today there are 3,000 Certified B Corporations across 64 countries and 150 industries, unified by one common goal: to redefine success in business.

Sokol Blosser is one of the state’s original juggernaut wineries, helping to kick off the craze and the demand for Oregon wines, starting with just five acres in 1971. It has since risen to be a leader in the Pacific Northwest wine industry and one of the nation’s top wine exports.

The winery has been a Certified B Corporation since 2015, a distinction that comes from verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose.

According to B Lab: “The winery farms 128 acres of estate vineyards and creates wines of world-class quality, produced in a sustainable manner, which reflect the distinctive flavors of the grapes, soil and climate. The winery produces pinot noir, pinot gris, chardonnay, sparkling wines, riesling and small quantities of single block pinot noir under its Sokol Blosser brand name, as well as a white blend, red blend, pinot noir, sparkling wine, riesling, and chardonnay under the Evolution label.”
