Soil. Vines. Wines. In this order. We are resolute in our passion to

produce hand made, minimally invasive wines that both whisper and shout

about the terrior from which they are grown. The Ampelos vineyard is

sustainable, organic and biodynamic certified and our focus on a natural process in evident in every aspect of our winemaking. Located in the cool coastal climate of California's central coast our 82 acre vineyard is part of the breathtaking Sta. Rita Hills AVA and planted with 27 acres of vines. Our primary focus is on Pinot Noir, but we also grow and produce small batches of Syrah, Grenache, and Viognier.

Taste through all of our wines by joining us in our tasting room located in the Lompoc Wine Ghetto.

We had a great tasting here in the Wine Ghetto. They have some really good wine and the lady working the tasty room was very friendly. Learned that wines can actually have 65 additives without needing to be put on the label. Ampelos doesn't do any of that.

Interesting wines and a very friendly and enthusiastic server. It was fun to have a real conversation and not just about wine although wine was the essential topic. The wines are very good and they encourage comparing the different varieties. Despite the somewhat industrial building the tasting room is comfortable. We liked the wines enough to leave with a few... More
