Residents of Indigo may remember our innaugural wine tasting back in January when we spent an enjoyable evening enjoying wines from Yamhill Valley Vineyards. Well, word spread pretty quickly about what a great venue our Sapphire Room is for hosting a wine tasting and now Sokol Blosser will be generously providing the wine for our 2nd rooftop tasting.
We are happy to welcome Sokol Blosser to our building and their environmentally friendly practices fit right in with our own. They boast an impressive list of eco-friendly practices: the estate is USDA certified organic, they use 50% biodiesal in their farm tractors, they use unbleached paper products, recycle as much as possible, and similar to Indigo’s LEED certification, their underground cellar is LEED certified by the Cascade Green Building Council.
I spoke with Sokol Blosser yesterday and they let me know that they will be bringing four wines to sample; a red blend (Meditrina), a white blend (Evolution), a pinot gris, and a pinot noir.
A gourmet hors d’oeuvres menu has been carefully selected and will be prepared on site by Executive Chef, Mark Henry. I think I might be more excited about the food, but regardless, I anticipate this tasting with Sokol Blosser to be a huge success. In the last week, I have overheard many people chattering about it in the lobby. So get your glasses ready because the Sapphire Room is the place to be this Wednesday night.
The tasting is open to residents and their guests only and will be held in The Sapphire Room from 7pm-pm.
