Rollin Soles: ROCO Owner & Winemaker
Texan, Rollin Soles has been producing fine wines and garnering high praise and fond attention from wine critics and enthusiasts for more than 20 years. Throughout the years Rollin has continued to produce wines that are ranked among the TOP 100 Wines of the World by the Wine Spectator (thirteen times, including ROCO 2008). He is the only Oregon winemaker to hold this distinction.
Rollin received a Bachelor's Degree in Microbiology from Texas A&M and a Masters of Science in Enology and Viticulture at the University of California at Davis. During his early winemaking years Rollin honed his knowledge and skills at some of the worlds' finest wineries in California, Switzerland, and Australia. He went on to create Argyle Winery in '87 and quickly gained a dedicated following.

Veteran winemaker Rollin Soles has been producing distinctly defined Oregon wines and garnering high praise from critics and enthusiasts for more than 27 years. Recently named "one of the top 20 most admired winemakers in North America", Soles focuses his attention on his passion project, ROCO Winery, which he started with his wife Corby in 2002. His wines display the expertise of making wine in Australia, California, Switzerland and Washington as a young man - before co-founding Argyle Winery in 1987.

Rollin Soles, winemaker and general manager of Argyle, said that people working at the winery had heard a few unaccounted-for noises and witnessed some lights turning off on their own. People think there is something there, but they don't get scared about it, Soles said, adding that Imus' ghost is a good spirit.

"I never saw rain so sideways here, and it hit when everything was pretty damn ripe," said Rollin Soles of Roco.

At Roco, Soles took it a step further. He rented a reverse osmosis machine and ran the saignée from all 5,000 cases of his 2013 production through it before adding it back to the fermenting wine. "Think about it," Soles said. "With saignée you're taking out the center of the grape. To turn it into rosé is like taking out the heart, the acids, the fresh fruit of the grape. So we basically remove the water and put that beautiful center back into the wine."
To prove his point, Soles saved a few samples of water deleted from the saignée.

ROCO Winery is named after Rollin and Corby Soles for a very good reason.
...
Originally from Texas, Rollin has more than three decades of winemaking under his belt. He cofounded the prestigious Argyle Winery 27 years ago and is the only Oregon winemaker whose wines have been ranked in Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of the World 13 times. He stepped back from his full-time position at Argyle in 2013 to spend more time expanding ROCO with Corby. Since then, the dynamic couple remains dedicated to producing stellar, highly rated, single vineyard wines.
"It was a joy to start a new winery with my wife," Rollin says. "ROCO is not just a label. It's a real winery with a real tasting room."
This year, more exciting changes are in store as ROCO initiates a Sparkling wine program.
The winery's story dates back to 1987, when Rollin and Corby purchased a unique hillside property near the quaint town of Newberg.
...
At that time, Rollin was in the founding stages at Argyle, and Corby co-owned Panther Creek Cellars and was working as a founding member of the International Pinot Noir Celebration.
...
Recently, Rollin and Corby acquired a 15-acre addition to their Wits' End Vineyard and planted it with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir-a move that makes the future of ROCO Winery even brighter.
