    In 1991, joining with two other families, Connie Poten bought a pasture in the Rattlesnake Valley to save it from development. Five years later, working on a local campaign, she met Andy Sponseller, then a city councilman and founder of Save Open Space, a nonprofit dedicated to saving the city’s open space. Besides conservation, it turned out they shared a certain zeal for dirt, rocks, wildlife and good wine. So it wasn’t long before they found themselves in a new career—throwing rocks into a pickup to clear the pasture a mile south of the mountainous Rattlesnake Wilderness Area.
    Over 50% of Ten Spoon's wine is made from Certified Organic Montana grapes and other fruit. We carefully select family organic vineyards for the other wines.

    2008 Moonlight Pinot Noir
  • Appellation: Willamette Valley
  • Winemaker: Andy Sponseller
  • This premium 2008 vintage offers dark cherry and currant with earthy, cedar notes, a hallmark of Oregon-grown Pinot Noir. Organic grapes were grown by the Cattrall Brothers, harvested at their peak in the Willamette Valley, and fermented at Ten Spoon winery in Missoula. Handcrafting in small batches has brought out the full fruit with a satisfying depth of flavor provided by a touch of French oak. Our 2007 vintage was the Silver Medal winner in the 2009 Green Wine Competition.

    2009 Saint Pepin Montana White
  • Appellation: Montana
  • St. Pepin Blend
  • Blend of St. Pepin, La Crosse,
