The Sokol name is Slavic in origin and denotes a bird-of-prey, the falcon. An ancient symbol of speed, strength, acuity and courage, we believe this beautiful creature is a perfect symbol for our vineyard. Thus the Falcon being our trademark and logo.
Katya Vineyards came into existence in the Fall of 2010 when Drs. David and Patricia Sokol looked to venture into viniculture. David always possessed a passion for the cultivation of vines as well as shared a love for excellent wine with his “Little Southern Lady”, Patricia. These two, along with their daughter Katherine, dived head first into a great adventure.
This Summer, July 2017, the Three Musketeers, along with the help of their family, opened their first tasting room. Sharing their finely crafted products with their beloved local community and visitors!
