Very nice tasting at Soter. We did the Chef’s pairing and the food was fabulous; a meal in itself. We liked the Soter label wines the best. Service was very good, the wine educator was a bit inexperienced but the location and view are lovely.

Soter was recommended to us, so we went. When we go there, we discovered that you have to have a reservation to do a tasting, very disappointing. They did welcome us with a rose, and then asked about a reservation, so we had the rose...More

Don’t waste your time at Soter. There are so many better places to visit in the area. I wish I had read the reviews here before going. A past reviewer mentioned they were reprimanded by the staff for eating a cracker during a tasting. Maybe...More

Prettiest spot we visited. Mesmeri (forgive me if I just butchered your name), was great. Had some really good wines. And really good company.

Blown away at MSR and Soter Vineyards. The wine, staff, tasting ‘barn’/kitchen, and the overall property. I’m a huge fan of the entire MSR environment and now an active buyer of their wines. Looking forward to the next visit!

We had a wonderful visit. Their pinot is great. Their sparkling rose is the best I have ever had. Highly recommend. Their tasting rooms are really wonderful little cottages. I will be going back anytime I'm in the area.
