It is with great delight that Luscious Porcelain has been invited to collaborate with Soter Vineyards at Mineral Springs Ranch in the creation of a supper on handmade tableware. In-house Chef Alex Daily and Chef Kei Odera of Farm Spirit will be using my porcelain to serve 60 guests at a convivial dinner out-doors.
Tony and Michelle Soter have been at the leading edge of creating biodynamic wines for decades, first in the Napa/Sonoma area and now at Mineral Springs Ranch. As a maker dedicated to practices that reduce my carbon footprint where possible, I have great respect for others who practice in ways that have similarly hard to see but far-reaching effects.
Soter wines are featured this year for the International Pinot Noir Celebration, and the supper promises to be beautiful in a stunning location. I am joined by my father, with whom I met Tony in the first place, and I look forward to meeting Michelle.
