Tony Soter has left the Napa Valley to devote himself
full-time to his Soter Vineyards label in the Willamette
Valley. He wants to concentrate on developing his
Mineral Springs Pinot Noir Vineyard. He will continue
to consult for Napa Carneros winery Etude, but Etude
will be under the direction of winemaker Jon Priest on a
day to day basis.
