Brut Rose 'Mineral Springs'
Soter Vineyards makes it home at Mineral Springs Ranch in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA of Oregon’s Willamette Valley. 30 acres of Pinot Noir and 2 acres of Chardonnay are sustainably farmed here, resulting in wines of the highest quality and caliber. Mineral Springs Vineyard wines are imbued with an indelible exoticism and varietal purity.
Mineral Springs Ranch is a 240-acre parcel of woodland and grazing land dotted with ancient Oregon white oak savannas. The enitire property is operated as a certified sustainable farm, home to 500 sheep and a 30-acre planting of Pinot Noir that occupies the ridge top and adjacent slopes at an elevation of 400 feet. These vines are rooted in ancient sedimentary soils derived from fractured marine sandstone.
The combined effect of superb exposure, elevation, excellent drainage and the cool North-western Oregon climate create the potential for consistently great wines. There is no doubt that experienced and dedicated farming, along with careful craftsmanship contribute to the result, but from its very first vintage this vineyard has expressed its own singular voice. The wines are compelling expressions of a place destined to be recognized as one of the great sites for new world Pinot Noir.
