"Glistening ruby-red. Lively and focused on the nose, displaying spice-tinged cherry and red currant scents and a hint of cola. Shows firm bite and spicy lift to the zesty red fruit flavors, which take a sweeter turn on the back half. Finishes long and supple, with just a hint of dusty tannins and a repeating cherry note. All neutral French oak.-- Josh Raynolds"

THINK PLANET We are committed to this planet and our place in it. We live and work in the agricultural heartland of Oregon, and are responsible for the care of this place and what we are given from it. That is why we grow our grapes in the most sustainable way we can. And when we harvest them, we create wine in a place where we monitor carbon emissions, energy use, and waste production.

DRINK OREGON Oregon is the cutting edge of the American beverage industry. People here have given up everything to pursue producing the best wine, beer, cider, and spirits in the United States. When you purchase a beverage made in Oregon, you can guarantee it was made from local products by people striving to make their voice heard on the shelf and in your home.

GIVE BACK In our work, we labor with the earth to create our products. It is our responsibility to give back accordingly. We farm sustainably, harvest with care, and craft with conscience. We support organizations like-minded in their work. That is why proceeds from Planet Oregon go to support the Oregon Environmental Council.

Soter Vineyards

View all from Soter Vineyards
Soter VineyardsIn the mid-1980s, Tony Soter began working as a consulting winemaker in the Napa Valley, assisting luminaries such as Araujo, Niebaum-Coppola, Shafer, Spottswoode, Viader and Dalla Valle. In 1982, he established his own winery – Etude – where he focused on Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon of noteworthy caliber and artisan focus. After years of mentoring and encouraging some of Napa Valley's most respected growers and winemakers, he ended his consulting roles to focus exclusively on Soter Vineyards and his family in the Willamette Valley of Oregon. The Soter's sole Estate vineyard today, Mineral Springs Ranch, is a 240-acre savanna-like oak woodland and grazing land located in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA. It is the home to 30 acres of Pinot Noir originally planted in 2002. Two acres of Chardonnay were included in the 2006 plantings and are devoted entirely to method champenoise sparkling wine production. Located just east of the town of Carlton, the ranch is perched on a mesa with gentle slopes and commanding views of the surrounding Yamhill-Carlton District. Our production facilities and hospitality buildings are here as well, allowing us complete control of all operations.
