Sokol Blosser Winery breaks ground on new tasting room

Sokol Blosser Winery has begun construction of a new tasting room that will anchor the 100-acre winery and estate.

Brad Cloepfil, founding principal of Allied Works Architecture, designed the building as a series of terraces carved into the contours of the Dundee Hills site in Yamhill county.

The main tasting room is at the center of the building with a bar, outdoor terrace, sitting area and hearth.

It is flanked by a library and kitchen, with a new cellar below the main floor for private tastings and storage.

The winery commissioned Allied Works to create a master plan, including tasting room and event space, for the property, which has been producing Oregon wines since 1978.

The original tasting room was constructed in 1977 by another celebrated Oregon architect, John Storrs.

The new tasting room is slated to open in July.
