Winemaker Notes

This is the flagship bottling of Soter Vineyards, named after the property where the winery, vineyard, and tasting room are located. Mineral Springs Ranch ("MSR") is a 240-acre Biodynamic farm and vineyard in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA in the heart of the Willamette Valley. MSR has an extremely compelling confluence of prime exposure, location and uniform, well-drained sedimentary soils. The vineyard is planted to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and includes a variety of clones among these several heirloom selections. The property is flanked to the west by the coast range, which offers a natural weather barrier and creates a relatively dry and warm microclimate. Together, these elements create the ideal situation to utilize summer’s long daylight hours for even ripening and establish the foundation for peak expression.

About Winery

Tony Soter is the founder of Soter Vineyards at Mineral Springs Ranch in Yamhill-Carlton, Oregon. Soter is a Portland, Oregon, native who began his remarkable 40-year winemaking career in the Napa Valley. After graduating from Pomona College in southern California with a degree in philosophy, Soter joined the staff at Stag's Leap Wine Cellars in 1975 to learn the trade. By 1982, he released his own wine under the Etude label, selling the winery almost 20 years later to Treasury Wine Estates. In the meantime, Soter worked as consulting winemaker for such world-famous Napa estates as Araujo (now Eisele), Chappellet, Dalla Valle, Shafer, and Spottswoode, among others. After almost 30 years in California, Soter moved back to Oregon and founded Soter Vineyards in 1997, where he is still making some of the most heralded pinot noirs in the state.

Today, Soter focuses on biodynamic grape growing to create rich flavors and substance. His cellar techniques look to the wisdom of past generations, trusting those natural processes to evoke the voice and character of each vineyard.

There are three distinct labels produced by Soter:

1.   SOTER VINEYARDS ... Illustrious estate-grown wines from Eola Amity, Ribbon Ridge, and Yamhill Carlton (where the Mineral Springs vineyard, farm, and winery are).

2.   ORIGIN SERIES ... Limited single-appellation bottlings showcasing each AVA's unique microclimate, geographical features, and growing conditions. 

3.   PLANET OREGON ... affordable, delicious, organically-grown wines from the Willamette Valley, ready to drink tonight.
