The Willamette Valley is internationally known for its Pinot Noir with over 500 wineries. But even with the varietal's reputation and cellars' international acclaim, winemakers still call themselves farmers, and you shouldn't pass up a chance to try their Chardonnay and their bubbly.

Everyone will tell you that the Willamette Valley is what Napa was... 25 years ago.

The wonder of the Willamette Valley includes the community spirit of all who work in the industry, and I can introduce you to incredibly kind and knowledgeable industry professionals who would love to show and educate you on the art of their wine.

At Soter, "the combination of respectful farming and craftsmanship as well as our ancient soils and temperate climate result in wines that are layered, nuanced and seductively captivating while remaining modest in alcohol and tannin, a happy consequence of the interaction of both the hand and the land."
