By August 26, 2021Top News

Sokol Blosser – a Certified B Corporation and one of Oregon’s original, iconic Willamette Valley wineries now celebrating 50 years – was recognized as a 2021 Best for the World: Environment recipient, its third time receiving this achievement. Ranking in the top 5% of all B Corps in its size group globally, Sokol Blosser has practiced sustainability since its founding in 1971. The winery earned its first recognition for environmental stewardship in 1983 by the U.S. Soil & Water Conservation District, built the first LEED-certified winery building in 2002 and received full USDA organic certification in 2005 for its estate winery. In 2015, Sokol Blosser received B Corp Certification. Through organic farming, participation in the Prescott Bluebird Recovery Project, fostering bee colonies, supporting local charities, its employee compensation and benefits, and cultivating an inclusive work environment, Sokol Blosser creates award-winning wines while maintaining business practices that help “protect the planet and support community.”
