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.
