The Story

Well worn jeans that whisper of planning, pruning, tasting and toiling about each detail. Boots that tell the story of each harvest, each step walked among the vines, cool foggy mornings and rich orange sunsets perfectly painted by mother nature's brush. Each bottle's story is written by hand with the first chapters belonging to us and the rich delicious ending all yours. Sharing our "home" with you is what we set out to do and lambda is the "magnitude" of that effort. It is the culmination of what we see when we look out upon our vineyard. It is our dream come true and it continues to unfold and teach us with each passing season.

Brand Story

In 1999, Rebecca and Peter Work purchased 82 acres in what would later become the Sta. Rita Hills appellation, and named it “Ampelos,” the Greek word for vine. Located in the cool climate area of the eastern Sta. Rita Hills, Ampelos Vineyard & Cellars is resolute in their passion to produce hands-on, minimally invasive wines. The vineyard is the first in the U.S. to be certified Sustainability in Practice, Organic, and Biodynamic. The combination of carefully nurtured vines, sustainable farming, hand-sorted fruit, eco-friendly winemaking, and a true passion for the land make for wines that are elegant, unique, and supremely drinkable.
