Community Spotlight | The Sokol’s Katya Vineyards
This month’s community spotlight highlights Katya Vineyards, Ocala’s newest hidden gem. David and Patricia Sokol planted their first crop of vines in the fall of 2010 with the help of their daughter Katherine. This adventure led to the inception and discovery of Katya Vineyards. From finding the perfect soil for their vines to bottling their decadent wine, the Sokols have put their heart and soul into their product. The dedication and personal approach to perfection make it hard not to fall in love with the wine and the crafters—David, Patricia, and Katherine.
