AmByth Estate | Paso Robles, CA

AmByth Estate is Paso Robles’ First Winery to Produce Demeter Certified Biodynamic Wines. We gained our certification from the Demeter Association in 2006. We utilize the Biodynamic method of farming to enhance our observations of nature, and use these intimate insights as tools that allow our 20 acres of vineyards to express their true character through the grapes it produces. We want our grapes to be as unique to AmByth Estate as your thumbprint is to you. The estate consists of 20 acres of vineyards and 600 olive trees dedicated to Biodynamic farming principles since their initial planting. 20 acres of untouched oak forests surround the vineyards.

At the heart of Biodynamic farming is the commitment to create a self-sustaining and diverse estate. We are a vineyard farm! A vital role to sustaining farmed land is the use of aged compost, inserted with the Biodynamic preparations, and applied yearly. This compost fertilizes, rejuvenates and enlivens the soil, creating healthy plants, balanced ecosystems and exceptional crop production. We also believe in the integration of farm animals, bees, olive trees, fruit & nut trees, vegetable gardens and landscaping with edible plants and California natives with extreme minimal-to-zero use of water.

Location

Right in between Los Angeles and San Francisco and just south of Paso Robles and north of San Luis Obispo, the estate vineyards are situated on a saddle ridge atop a nobby hill in the middle of a vortex thats known as the Templeton Gap. Cool Pacific Ocean air filters through the Santa Lucia Mountains along the central coast and gets pulled almost every day into the Creston Valley extending West to East, making our appellation 5 or more degrees cooler than surrounding areas. This wind also helps keep the vines dry and free of mildews and molds and doesnt allow large colonies of bugs to establish throughout the growing season (which helps with our theories of farming). Steep hillsides allow the plants to extend their dry farmed roots into ancient substrate of sedimentary rock and deposits of Limestone, Sandstone, Calcarous Clays, and Clay Loam. A mixture known as Linne Calodo. This minerality and acidity the vines extract from the ground can easily be identified in our estate wines.
