SLC Eatery and Soter Vineyards
One of my very favorite wine makers is Oregon’s Soter Vineyards, which is where Tony and Michelle Soter and their talented team produce top-tier wines that are remarkably consistent.
On Tuesday, October 1st, Owner/Chefs Paul Chamberlain and Logen Crew will host a Soter Vineyard wine dinner at their SLC Eatery restaurant. Also attending the dinner to answer questions and discuss the wines will be Hallie Whyte, director of sales and operations for Soter.
The Soter wine dinner kicks off at 6:30 pm and SLC Eatery will prepare five food courses along with four wine pairings. The Soter wines being served are Brut Rosé, North Valley Reserve Chardonnay, North Valley Reserve Pinot Noir, and Mineral Springs Pinot Noir. The cost is $50 per person for food and $50 for the optional wine pairings.
