The Wine Connection - Sofia Torres McKay - Cramoisi

If there is someone proud of her heritage, it’s Sofía Torres-McKay, Co-Owner of Cramoisi Vineyard and Winery and Co-Founder of AHIVOY (Asociación Hispana de la Industria del Vino en Oregon Y Comunidad) and she’s a prominent activist for Vineyard Stewards. Born in Mexico City, Sofía worked 19 years in the tech industry before moving to the United States in 2002 to pursue her career in corporate business. In 2011, Sofía (Mexican) and her husband Ryan McKay (Oregonian) both invested their money and took a chance on 10 acres of property in the Dundee Hills of Oregon, where they planted vines and started living their dream making small lots of boutique Pinot noir! Now the only Latina Winery/Vineyard Owner in the Dundee Hills AVA, Sofía continues to be a passionate steward for diversity in the wine industry and teaches Vineyard workers the importance of Organic and Biodynamic farming. In 2019,  Sofia was appointed to the Regional Solutions Advisory Committee–Mid-Willamette Valley–by Oregon State Governor Kate Brown.  Active participant in the community; when Sofia is not working, she is busy raising her two boys, Mateo and Johnathan, in a dual-cultural household where both English and Spanish are spoken. As a Latina, she teaches her kids the importance of diversity and inclusivity and brings those values to all she does for the wine community.
