What's new at Amphora Winery!
October 21, 2017
Amphora is once again open for business.
THANK YOU for all of your thoughts, prayers, and good wishes sent our way during the catastrophic wildfires which began on October 8th. Please forgive us for not replying personally to each of you, but we're still in the midst of harvest.
We at Amphora are grateful to be among the fortunate who still have homes and businesses because of the incredible efforts of firefighters and first responders from across our state and nation (and even from as far away as Australia). Their relentless work, finally aided by a little rainfall, is leading to containment of these numerous and widespread fires. But thousands of families in our community have lost everything, and our thoughts and efforts rightfully turn towards them.
If you’d like to help those in need due to these tragic events, please consider donating to:
This fund is organized and administered (for no charge) by the Redwood Credit Union, the Press-Democrat, RCU Community Fund, and CA Senator Mike McGuire.
100% of your tax-deductible donations go directly to support those affected!
Another way to help is by patronizing our local businesses. Many Sonoma County workers and business owners lost their homes (and sometimes their businesses as well), and the economic effects are rippling out through the entire region. Despite the severe loss of life and property, 98% of Sonoma County did NOT burn. Please continue to visit and enjoy the wine, food, scenery, and accommodations of this beautiful place.
THANK YOU from all of us at Amphora Winery
We have commissioned a new amphora and it is currently being crafted at the Antica Fornace in Montecchio, Tuscany. Here is the "rotunda"in the workshop, prior to firing. Our new terracotta vessel is slated to arrive in time for the 2017 harvest, and Rick already has plans to keep it full of fermenting grapes!
The warm days and evenings of summer beg for a refreshing wine, and we now the perfect one:
To craft this refreshingly crisp wine, we picked ripe Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel just a little earlier than we typically would for full-throttle red wine. After destemming, crushing, and a brief period of skin contact, we pressed off the juice and fermented it at cool temperatures in stainless steel. The result is a fresh and zesty rosé. The pale salmon color invites a sip, and floral and strawberry aromas lead to flavors redolent of peaches and cream, raspberry and a squeeze of tart cherry. This is wine to enjoy now, and that’s we chose to skip bottle and cork in favor of the convenience and portability of a box. Whether in the fridge door, on the pool deck, or on a boat—take this one along on your summer meanderings!
List price is $78 for the 3-Liter Box (=4 bottles), $58.50 Concierge Club, $62.40 Platinum Club, $66.30 Gold Club.
Saturday, February 8, 2014 will be an evening to remember as Rick and Bridget welcome you to our annual Winemaker Dinner. Chef Martin Courtman will provided a sumptuous menu including Wild Mushroom and Truffle Oil Ragout, Black Angus Beef Tenderloin with Walnut Risotto, and a Chocolate Decadence Cake with Fresh Raspberry Coulis and Creme Chantilly Rick will be pouring exceptional vintages of some of our favorite varietals both in pre-release, current release, and library selections.
So gather friends together and make it a special night at
Tickets $140/ $120 club per person and are available here or by calling 707-431-7767.
Guests at the Amphora holiday party, who visited with us last Saturday, helped provide needed donations to our local charities by bringing along wonderful toys for children's center and food items for the senior pantry. These gifts will make such a big impact in the lives of those most in need in our community and we hoped it filled your hearts with the spirit of the season.
