The most striking feature of the Sokol Blosser Winery Tasting Room in Oregon’s Willamette Valley is its exterior and interior walls, which consist of striated wooden cladding made with Tight Knot Cedar, Douglas Fir, and Hickory.

The unique form of the building by Allied Works Architecture allows the sun to create dynamic geometric patterns that move with the earth inside and outside on the terraces. “Visitors will feel immersed in the earth’s natural elements throughout the building.” says Sokol Blosser.

“With increasing foot traffic to the winery over the years, Sokol Blosser recognized the need to expand the capacity of the tasting room to meet demand as well as evolve the communal wine tasting experience for both current and next generation wine country visitors. The decision to offer personalized experiences inspired the creation of eight different tasting areas, each with unique design characteristics, for visitors to choose from tailored wine flights to wine and food pairings to private events. The winery sees bespoke wine tourism as critical to its success and the future of the Oregon wine country experience.”

The new Tasting Room features 5,000 square feet of space to taste wine. The low profile structure frames views and vistas of the vineyard and viticulture-focused landscape from all sides.
