PSU’s 75th Anniversary Wine & Sokol Blosser Winery
The Portland State University Alumni Association teamed up with Sokol Blosser Winery to produce a custom label commemorating Portland State University’s 75th Anniversary. Vikings on the Vine club members will receive a custom 2018 Viking Cuvée Pinot Noir in their Spring shipment. Not only is this a milestone year for PSU, Sokol Blosser Winery is celebrating its 50th anniversary. Winery co-presidents and siblings, Alex Sokol Blosser ’97, ’03 & Alison Sokol Blosser ’00 are proud members of the PSU alumni family.
Portland State University and Sokol Blosser Winery share many of the same values including a commitment to sustainability, service to the community, and working toward a more equitable and just world. Both PSU and Sokol Blosser Winery have been changemakers in Portland and throughout the state and region and look forward to continuing their commitment to our wonderful community.
You can also purchase bottles of the 75th Anniversary Viking Cuvée without being a club member. Order today before they sell out!
Portland State University alumnus and winemaker at Fullerton Wines, Alex Fullerton began his journey at PSU in 2010. Before coming to PSU, Alex traveled abroad to New Zealand to work the wine harvest at Dryland Winery in Marlborough. It was there he realized his passion was in wine and wine making. Alex returned to Portland and enrolled at PSU completing his science pre-requisites before entering the Viticulture and Enology program at Oregon State. Alex and his family are big fans of Viking Basketball, as his brother, Filip, played on the team during the 2018-2019 season. Alex attributes much of his success and dedication as a wine maker to his time at PSU.
From humble beginnings, Fullerton Wines began in a garage in 2011. Alex and his father, Eric, partnered with good friend Roger Wallberg to make just a few barrels of Pinot Noir. Despite the challenging vintage, the wine impressed and Fullerton Wines was born. Today, Fullerton Wines crafts treasured Willamette Valley wines, focused purely on the Burgundian varietals of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
