Amplify Wines is run by Cameron and Marlen Porter, a husband and wife team born and raised in Santa Barbara County. The exploration, and elevation, of the growing region has been their life’s work. As winemakers, they seek to amplify the voice of site and enhance the most singular characteristics of a given vineyard, marrying a sense of place with a sense of style. They believe in: native yeast fermentations; neutral vessels for fermentation and aging; no additions of any kind except for minimum effective sulfur dioxide; and farming that seeks to establish a healthy ecosystem, enhancing and supporting the natural characteristics of a given place.
Taste five wines (you’ll always taste with Cam and/or Mar), see where they produce their wines, get a hands-on look at the methods they utilize, and learn more about their philosophy.
Cost is $15 to taste.
