About

In 1999, husband & wife team Peter & Rebecca Work purchased 82 acres in what would later become the Sta. Rita Hills appellation (Santa Rita Hills in California is legally Sta. Rita Hills), and named it “Ampelos,” the Greek word for vine. Their philosophy is "soil, vines, wines" - this is the order in which great wine is made. Their vineyard is one of the first in the US to be certified Sustainability in Practice, Organic and Biodynamic. Only 5,000 cases are made every year.
