Amphora Wines

Amphora Wines Over the past 28 years, Rick Hutchinson has learned the art of winemaking "from the ground up". Working alongside some of the best people in the business, he has helped to transform the fine wine grapes of Sonoma County into world-class wines. In1997, he crushed the first vintage for his own label, Amphora. Amphorae (literally "the vine-bearer") were the clay wine vessels of the ancient Mediterranean. Rick chose the name in honor of his other passion, the art of pottery. He sees many parallels between the art of winemaking and the crafting of fine pottery: both are products of the earth, molded by the human hand, and brought to their highest expression by painstaking attention to detail.
