About Mark VlossakMark Vlossak is the Founder, President, and Winemaker of St. Innocent Winery in Jefferson, Oregon. During his university training, he developed a love for Champagne. After reading an article in 1983 on American sparkling wine in Bon Appetit magazine, he was inspired to become a winemaker. Andre Tshelishev was quoted: "the greatest sparkling wine in America will be made in Oregon, not California, because it is the right place to grow Pinot noir and Chardonnay, the grapes of Champagne." During his training, he apprenticed with Fred Arterberry, Jr., the first Oregonian to make sparkling wine. Fred also produced the first vineyard-designated Pinot noirs in Oregon, something Mark would soon become famous for producing.
Mark has always made our wines, oversees the vineyards, and represents St. Innocent in the national marketplace. We have grown from 600 cases in the first year to our current production of roughly 6,200 cases, yet each wine is still handcrafted.
He made the Wine Advocate's first 94 point wine in 1994 and by 2002 had made six of the first twelve 94 point wines. Mark was honored by the Wine Advocate in 2002 and again in 2004 as one of their "Wine Personalities of the Year", one of two Oregon Winemakers to receive that honor.
