THE 24TH ANNUAL NANTUCKET WINE & FOOD FESTIVAL: MAY 13-17, 2020

Tony Soter

Owner

Soter Vineyards
Willamette Valley, Oregon

Tony Soter gained recognition in California as founder of Etude Wines, and consultant to luminaries such as Araujo, Shafer, Spottswoode, and Chappallet. Tony’s experience is displayed by his thoughtful care of the vineyards, a sensitive hand in the cellar, and an artful ability to allow the character of place to resonate in his wines. Now settled in the Willamette Valley’s Yamhill-Carlton District, Tony and Michelle Soter own and operate Mineral Springs Ranch, a Biodynamic farm and vineyard they regard as a haven for raising world-class Oregon Pinot noir and sparkling wines. The combination of respectful farming, ancient marine soils, and temperate climate, result in wines that are layered, nuanced and seductively captivating while remaining modest in alcohol and tannin.
