Since its introduction by Dundee, Oregon based Sokol Blosser Winery in 1998, Evolution has evolved into something of a phenomenon. Its fan base gives meaning to the word "loyal" and is spread all over North America, Europe and Asia. At the time, there were very few white blends on the market, and Evolution tapped into the niche that would become an important segment of the wine business. As word spread and Evolution made the rounds, it enjoyed extraordinary popularity. The packaging and the price have attracted drinkers more interested in great tasting wine, affordability and having a good time than trying to impress friends at the next dinner party.
Our goal is to make a wine that appears simple - easy drinking, relaxing - but in reality is quite complex. Producing a proprietary blend like Evolution is a combination of art and science. Our winemaker, Russ Rosner, says, "In over twenty years of winemaking this is by far the hardest wine I've had to make. It's like mixing nine different colors of paint and trying to end up with a rainbow instead of a muddy brown."
People always joke around, asking whether we created this blend on purpose or if we just blended leftovers and it happened to work. That's where we got the idea of "Luck vs. Intention" that is used on the label.
For years, Evolution White lovers have been asking after a red counterpart. Now, the sky is the limit. We're proud to announce the release of Evolution Red in 2012, the newest addition to the Evolution wine family, and, let us say: it's about time.
