Winemaker Notes

The best black tie BBQ you have ever been to. Rustic yet refined. Prada meets Luccese and they dance into the night asa notes of Turkish tobacco, sweet licorice and Madagascar vanilla permeate the air. Deep hues and luscious layers of currants, blueberries, dark chocolate, Cuban cigars, and a hint of mint are the opulent guests of a confident cowboy who is always calm in a room full of strangers. Well behaved guests never make history... enjoy the party!

Certified bio-dynamic.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Compact, with expressive aromas of blueberry, bitter chocolate and smoked meat and well-structured flavors of dried berry, orange zest and cracked pepper. Drink now through 2026.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Soft, round and lengthy, there's a lot to admire and enjoy in this wine. Licorice, leather and undulating ripe blackberry and black cherry fruit combine on the palate. It's medium bodied, intense and complex, with dark chocolate accents on the finish.

Ampelos Cellars, California
Ampelos Cellars Aerial View of the Vineyard Winery Image
Ampelos is a Greek word meaning "vine". We believe that all great wines are made in the vineyard, we also have strong ties to Greece, so “ampelos” truly represents our focus.

We believe in taking care of and respecting the environment and that our vineyard needs to be in balance, therefore a few years ago we made the decision to go 100% bio-dynamic. This means we are essentially organic - yet a step beyond. In 2008, we were one of the first vineyards to be certified as Sustainably Farmed, a milestone of which we are particularly proud.

Sta. Rita Hills Wine

Santa Barbara, California

View all products

A superior source of California Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Sta. Rita Hills is the coolest, westernmost sub-region of the larger Santa Ynez Valley appellation within Santa Barbara County. This relatively new AVA is unquestionably one to keep an eye on.

The climate of Sta. Rita Hills is a natural match for Chardonnay and Pinot noir, thanks to the crisp ocean breezes and well-drained, limestone-rich calcareous soil. Here, grapes ripen just enough, while retaining brisk acidity and harmonious balance.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Rhône Blends of the south, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
