Soter Vineyard is one of our favorites and a leader in going Carbon Neutral! If you have not tried the sparkling from Tony Soter, you are missing out on a true gem from the USA. I would rather drink a Soter Rose than almost any Champagne, expecially given the price. The Mineral Springs Pinot Noir is another stunner. All of this from the man who made wine at Araujo, Spottswoode, and several other big name Napa Cabernets. A gentle hand is necessary with Pinot and sparkling, just like the enviroment we live in. Tony even helped design his own house atop a hill in Oregon. The sides of the house open with a cantilever to allow the fresh air to cool the house.
