We celebrated the beginning of the new millenium with a mission in mind and a passion in heart: to transform the best of the Israeli sun, grapes and tradition into a bottle of world-class Israeli wine. The Amphorae Vineyard is dedicated to combining the love of wine with quality tradition and the delicate mix of knowledge, perfection, and passion to produce a world-class Israeli wine. When a group of wine lovers started Amphorae Vineyard, we decided to establish a winery with the goal of making a world-class Israeli wine. Our mission was clear: take no shortcuts and spare no efforts to create a true perfection in winemaking. For the location, we came to Makura ranch in the heart of the Carmel Mountains where the Maharal River gently winds. The Amphorae Vineyard is located precisely where the river crosses the Shirr Valley. A serene Mediterranean view surrounds the winery, creating the right ambience to make a perfect wine. We hired Diego Grasso, a well known architect who has designed several well known Read more »

  • Surprised nobody's mentioned him so far so I'll throw Gravner into the discussion. He as much as anyone put clay pots/terracotta vessels/amphorae/qvevri/giare/whatever-you-want-to-call-them on the winemaking map, starting decades ago. He uses giare from Georgia, which he lines with beeswax. His whites from them that I've had are almost as tannic... Read More

  • A few days ago I participated in a tasting/pairing event that featured white wines. One of the wines was Chablis, and, while discussing this one, the facilitator stated that it was fermented in steel and had never seen oak.  I asked if that was common for the region and he responded that it was absolutely the case, and was so for all white wines...

  • Ok, new year and time for a new topic of discussion.  Just yesterday I opened this Pinot Noir from California that initially sounded promising.  First  - it was given to Sandra as a retirement gift so it was free.  Second - a Pinot Noir bottled in St. Helena CA, so it has to be decent, right? and Third - a nice looking label.  Well, this 2014 Me...

  • A new trend in winemaking may make you wonder what today's vintners are smoking. This past month The Telegraph reporter Victoria Moore explored the small renaissance clay pots are enjoying in the winemaking world, a nod back to the days of the Roman empire when wines were stored in similar containers. “The Greek and the Romans both used large po...

  • As many of you might know I am half Italian, with family that comes from the province of Trentino in northern Italy. It’s where the seeds for my love for wine were originally planted, and there are plenty of fabulous wines produced there. Though little of it finds it’s way to our shores. That is slowly changing but the truth is there is only so ... Read More

  • Tenuta Maggiore Amphorae Clelia IGT 2011

    Snoothrank:

    REALLY great value in this Italian blend of Croatina, Barbera, and Shiraz. Delicate nose with floral notes and juicy cherry/blackberry. More of the same on the palate - a juicy fruit forward wine with additional complexity from notes of dark chocolate, cracked pepper, and mint. Short to moderate length.Balanced with well integrated acidity that'... Read More

  • Oh dear, how can I say it?  Get a Mac! Windows is such a house of cards....Original Big, you will see those amphorae-type clay vessels around Italy and other parts of the Mediterranean, as well. Looks like you had some interesting visits in Chile, where those wineries are trying to keep up with what's cool back in the 'home' countries.Greg's exp... Read More

I’ve covered Cabernet, Pinot Noir, the wines of France and today I turn my attention towards Italy. Without a doubt my favorite wine producing country; Italy is home to more variety and styles of wine than anyplace else on the planet. As... Read More
