AmByth Estate is a Demeter certified Biodynamic farm: an emphasis is placed on the farm as a whole, not just the vineyards. Integration of animals, perennial plants, flowers and trees, water conservation and composting is emphasized. Inputs such as chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides and fungicides are prohibited. A focus on soil health, the integration of plants and animals and biodiversity demands close observations and participation by the farmer, and we believe this is reflective in the wine, lending to the wine a ‘sense of place’.
AmByth Estate is Paso Robles’ first and only Demeter certified Biodynamic vineyard and winery. The vineyards consist of over 20 acres planted to Rhone varietals, and an additional acre each of Sangiovese and Tempranillo. Interspersed throughout the vineyards are over 650 olive trees, all of Spanish varietals.
AmByth Estate believes in producing 100% estate wine that are made with minimal intervention. We do not use additives to manipulate the fruit that comes from the vineyards. We also strive to produce wine that is lower in alcohol levels, so that we have drinkable wines which create that magical harmony between food and wine.
Visit a working farm: see the compost pile (averaging 50 tons of cow manure), the cows, the chickens roaming the vineyards, the bees and our gardens which supply 85% of our fruit and vegetable consumption. We have installed solar power and are excited the see the meter running backwards! We’d love to show you our little slice of heaven!
